Hello everyone. I'm Anna Kagedal, from Sweden, but working in an International School in Tamil Nadu, South India. I'm a teaching librarian (but one with a library degree, not a teaching one). I am trying to keep current with 2.0, mostly Library 2.0, but I am also trying to promote use of 2.0 in the classroom to our techers here - hence my joining this ning.
Hello everyone :) My name is Amanda Debattista and I am an eLearning Teacher from Malta (that's a little island in the middle of the Mediterranean Sea....) My job is to promote ICT, Web 2.0 and eLearning in Primary schools around Malta, both with the students but especially with the teachers. I have my own blog, http://teachersandcomputers.blogspot.com, where I post practical ideas for the class teachers. At the moment I am following a distance course with the University of London, Online Education and Training.
I am just one part of Culips ESL Podcast from Montreal, Canada. Please visit our website if you are leaning English or want to know more natural English expressions. The address is www.culips.com. We always talk about interesting cultural topics and real idioms that people are currently using.
And with each episode, you get the transcript, a more detailed explanation and a quiz. You can also send us your English language questions, as it could be featured in an episode (and we will definitely answer you).
Hello all, I'm Victoria from NSW, Australia. I teach English and History and have just began my Masters in Education focussing on ICT and multi-literacies. Looking forward to interacting with you and sharing ideas and plans!
I look forward to hearing from other educators and hope to convince other teachers in my school to join as well. I teach World Geographic Regions to 8th graders in Maine. All students in 7th & 8th grade in Maine have laptops and I am always looking for ways to use this technology to help my students develop 21st Century skills. I am also interested in hearing from teachers that have connected their classrooms with classrooms around the world. I am overwhelmed by the number of choices out there and do not have the time to research them all. So I would love to hear from other teachers who have already used these tools.
