I'm H Songhai from Philadelphia, PA. I teach Media Literacy and Digital Archiving at Hope Charter High School. I'm an advocate of the paperless classroom, blogging, Internet broadcasting and Personal Start Pages like iGoogle, Netvibes and Pageflakes.
I'm Mary Meisel, from Emporium, Pennsylvania. I had bookmarked this page a while back and on revisiting I decided it was time to join. Web 2.0 offers so many powerful tools for use in education and although many of these tools are blocked in our school district at the present time, I hope that more information and greater understanding of those tools will help turn the tide.
Hi Mary Welcome to CR2.0. I think you'll find some great ideas here. I was listening to an online conversation recently (EdTechTalk???) about filtering in schools. Some have been able to request unblocking of specific sites with an explanation of how it meets a particular ed need. Might be worth a try.
I am a primary school teacher in sunny island Singapore. I love using technology in the classrooms and trying out new ways to engage my pupils. Would love to collaborate with teachers in other countries who are teaching the same age group (11-12yr old). I am passionate about teaching and would love to get in touch with other teachers around the world.
