Greetings! I am a technology administrator at a school district in Texas. I have enjoyed reading the posts and thought it was about time that I introduced myself. My district has put a lot of money into infrastructure and has a BYOD program at grades 8-12 that we are moving down to 5-6 next year. The thing I have found most lacking in many school districts is the professional development (training) support for teachers when technology is rolled out. We are focusing a lot on training and specifically looking at Web 2.0 tools that can help teachers and students create, collaborate, and problem solve in the real world.
Hi everyone. I'm am audio-visual support technician and web developer at Lane ESD, an education service agency, in Eugene, OR. I found this site in my search for educators using Ning or products like it, with the aim of providing some recommendations for staff regarding a new grant-based program's web presence. I know Ning was kind of a big thing several years ago, but it seems it has lost some of its cachet among schools and school districts because of the move to a pay-only model. In any case, I'll be perusing around looking at the kinds of activity here, but will likely find you all a good resource for how things are used in the classroom.
