Hola, I am a high school Spanish teacher in an independent school in Richmond, Virginia. Previously I was a college professor for ten years, specializing in modern Latin American literature and Medieval Spanish literature. I have been heavily involved in technology in the classroom, running discussion fora, nings, and wikis for years now. I have worked with a group to develop a web-based Spanish program called Cine Con Clase that uses Spanish film to augment in-class learning. Our school has an on-going project to increase technology use in the classroom, which in my case specifically applies to podcasting, international skype projects, and other interactive on-line projects across different clases.
Welcome, Chris. It's nice to see another HS Foreign Language teacher on the site. I teach German in rural Indiana. Your technology projects sound great. The French teacher and I are looking for ways to use more technology in our classes. Do you mind sharing your webpage so I can look for ideas we might be able to use?
My name is Diana La Rocque and I am a technology curriculum integration specialist for the middle schools in the Charleston (SC) County School District. I have been teaching and using technology for about 23 years and started in a computer magnet school. Boy, have things changed! Thank you, to all of you, who make this website what it is!
My name is Janice Reid. I am a Manager of Educational technology from Lower Westchester, NY. I am interested in hearing how technology is used in classrooms around the world as I support teachers and administrators with using technology.
Hopefully I will be able to share ideas as well as learn by being a part of discussions.
Welcome to Classroom 2.0. I teach in an elementary gifted program and have done several projects using primary sources over the years. I also have a blog called A Very Old Place, you might see some "new" ways to use "old" stuff there.
I have a former student's dad who has your job at the Harry Truman Library in Independence, Mo.
Hi, I'm a middle school science teacher who also teaches a video lit class. I'm working with students grades 4 - 8 and have a vested interest in helping them use web 2.0 tools as an integral part of their learning. A digital immigrant, I find the process sometimes frustrating, occasionally alarming and always interesting.
Hi! I am a Library Media Specialist at the Ramapo Central School District. I am new to the position in Ramapo but have previous experience in other library settings. I am looking to gain from this site; however, I am feeling a bit of information overload at the moment with the more than a dozen Web 2.0 applications out there. Anyway, glad to be here!
Hi, I'm a curriculum consultant from Teachers College, Columbia University. I'm also launching two new schools in New York City next year as part of the Asia Society's International Studies School Network. Hoping to connect with some international folks.
