I am a Technology Integration Specialist for La Crescent-Hokah School District in Southeast Minnesota but live in Wisconsin. We live in a very beautiful part of the state. Currently, I am finishing a Masters of Arts in Curriculum and Instruction with an emphasis on Educational Technology at Marian University in Fond du lac, WI. I am very excited about all the new technologies I am learning and sharing with my teachers in my district.
I'm a high school history teacher at the Ethical Culture Fieldston School, a progressive independent school in NYC. I've written ten books, most recently the newly published Essaying the Past: How to Read, Write and Think about History (Wiley-Blackwell). My blog, "American History Now,"explores the role of U.S. history in everyday life. One running feature is "The Felix Chronicles," lightly fictionalized vignettes of classroom life. Be glad to know if anyone else is working in a similar vein. Thanks.
Hi I'm looking to create a personal learning network. I recently graduated from the Johns Hopkins Graduate Program in School Administration and Supervision in partnership with ISTE. It was a great program!
Hi everyone. I teach video production, instructional technology and media literacy in a public high school in western MA. I also do some freelance work with video production/filmmaking and teaching video production/technology skills. I'm a father of two and I'm finally working on my Master's Degree (in Education with a specialty in Technology and Media/Video Production). I'm interested in networking and collaborating with others on work involving video production, media production and web 2.0/instructional technology.
Hello folks. I am a special education teacher at Monsignor Uyen School in Chatham, Ontario, Canada. I work with students from JK to Grade 8. I love the variety my day holds. I am also very much involved with the School Peace Garden Movement In June, 2000, I was honoured by being named TV Ontario's Teacher of the Year. I love technology and see it as a way to level the playing field for my special students.

As CIO of Littleton Public Schools, I try to figure out where the technology is going and help set our schools up for success. We have a wireless network covering every corner of each school and we offer fully open access that kids use with their technology. We are piloting some writing projects with ASUS EeePCs with over 800 in the school district and are working on a major initiative leveraging them. We publish an annual IT guideline document that is available at http://yourit.littletonpublicschools.net
I've joined here because I am very interested in the development of social networking systems into powerful learning resources. We recently held a no-charge conference in our district with over 200 attendees on the topic: http://colearning.wikispaces.com/Home+2009
It sounds like you are doing terrific work in your district. As a parent and taxpayer, I like that you make your documents available to the public. Can parents make comments on what you have posted or make other suggestions?
Will you be at CoSN next week in Austin?
Sadly, I am not planning on going to CoSN this year... bad budget cuts around here. I do run a blog where folks comment. Our Educational Technology Advisory Committee requires parent members and I get quite a bit of good input there as well.
