Hi Leigh. I'm an elementary teacher up the road in San Marcos. You'll find a lot of great people and ideas here. There are more and more ideas and conversations for 2nd language and foreign language teachers. Welcome to Classroom 2.0.
I am Karen Kliegman, library media specialist @ Searingtown School, on Long Island, NY. I also adjunct in an educational technology graduate program and graduate library science program. My blog is Wired Librarian and you can find me on Twitter, too.
Hello, all, Curt Lieneck, IT Director for the University of Chicago Laboratory Schools, a large independent school on campus here at U of C. I'm a long time elementary teacher who's led our IT efforts here since '98. John Dewey, our school's founder, would have been excited by the opportunities for building the kind of learning communities (like this Ning) that Web 2.0 tools enable. Our challenge here is to honor our progressive legacy even as we extend its principles to a kind of learning we could scarcely imagine just a few short years ago. What an exciting time to be in education!
Hello 2.0 Teachers. I'm Heather Dowd from Illinois. I am a former high school physics/math teacher, but I am currently going to graduate school full time and working part time as an instructional designer for a community college. (I miss teaching though!!) I returned home to the US last summer after spending three years teaching in Mexico. I'm excited about all the web 2.0 tools that I failed to notice while living in Mexico. It's an exciting time to be in education.
Hi, I'm Cecilie Murray in Melbourne Australia, and I'm interested in seeing how educators use Classroom 2.0. Among other things, I research emerging technologies and social networking sites for learning. This year I'm researching iPod Touch in primary schools, and a mobile learning project across 4 countries. Be great to have a look around!
