I am a graduate student in the library and information science - school media master's program at Syracuse University, and this is my first ning! I joined as a means of discovering ways I can integrate Web 2.0 technologies into my future library instruction. I'm doing some student teaching this semester in Lake Placid, NY (I'm a distance student, so I live about 4 hours from Syracuse in the northern Adirondacks) and hoping to come up with some collaborative projects. Thanks to everyone for posting all this good stuff!
I teach at an Intermediate School in Napier, Hawke's Bay, New Zealand. I am currently Deputy Principal at our school. I split my time between admin duties and taking specialist I.C.T classes for our Y7 & 8 students (10-13year olds). I haven't done a lot with I.C.T for the past five years (no P.D what so ever) and have very little idea what Web 2.0 is about but am on a journey of enlightenment. Any advice or tips for a complete Web 2.0 novice that any of you can share with me would be appreciated.
Hi, everyone. I am a master's student in secondary English education at Teachers College, hoping to learn more here about bringing technology into the classroom. I'm currently student teaching 10th and 11th grade English. It's nice to meet you all!
Hey everyone I am new to this site. I was informed about this site through one of my graduate course I am taking at PACE University in NY. I will hopefully be a certified Ed Tech teacher soon. I look forward to hearing and collaborating with everyone.
Hello all. I am in Instructional Coach with a background in teaching Social Studies. I work in a high school that is High Access (1:1) as of the beginning of the year. I am looking for ways to support my teachers in their use of Web 2.0.
Hello, I am a teacher at BHS. We started a new 21st Century Communications Skills course this year, so I am trying to learn all I can about Web 2.0 tools. I am working toward a Master's degree in Instructional Media.
My name is Brian Carmichael. I am teaching a grade 6 class of 27 great students. I am interested in finding out all I can about technology that can help me (and others) in the classroom. I am really excited this year because I am at a new school that is completely state of the art (Smartboard, 10 computers in the room, great software, etc...). It appears that I am the go to guy for the school website and info tech. I am looking forward to networking with other teaching professionals.

I am an older rookie Senior High School English Language Arts Teacher. This is my fourth year teaching full time, ELA for three of these fun filled years. I have just begun this fascinating journey in to the world of web applications in the last year and must admit to being thrilled by the learning that has taken place inside and outside of the classroom. I have grown by leaps and bounds so far, as every day brings new understandings; many ahha moments, as well as the 'duh... should have seen that coming' insights. I have benefited too from the sharing of information and feedback that has been provided from my growing PLN. After all, is that not what this is all about?
I hail from the panhandle of Florida - DeFuniak Springs. I teach high school and adults - Introduction to Information Technology (this is my first year with this course and sorely need advice).
I Have been working in the school system for 14 years and love my job most days. Web 2.0 is so interesting and awe inspiring. I am reading World is Flat... Thomas Friedman. ( I am also reading the Hobbit) I love all things techie and the more they make me say wow...the better.
