The 7 1/2 Habits of Highly Successful Lifelong Learners presentation gave me an interesting way to look at my goals in this class and in the LIS program as a whole. One of the Habits mentioned was "Teach/Mentor Others." This is probably the one which would come most easily to me. I enjoy working with other people and teaching. I do a lot of crafts, such as knitting and quilting, and whenever I learn something new I am eager to teach others. This is a trait that may be useful as a Library and Information Specialist, especially since I have a concentration in school libraries.
The habit which I may struggle with the most is "Use Technology to Your Advantage." I have never had a particularly strong interest in computers. I tend to see them as something I have to use to complete a task and rarely think about how they work or why. I'll freely admit that using new technology can make things easier, but I have not often found myself wanting to learn how to use them. Hopefully this class will help my change my ways and I will become more comfortable with the use of computers!
