Hi everyone! Can't believe it took me this long to join, but here I am. I teach grade eight in Regina, Saskatchewan and I'm a grad student at UBC. Interested in all Web 2.o tools. Taught using Teen Second Life and most recently experimenting with back-channeling.
I am Linda Jones, and have been a teacher for seven years, elementary education, grades 3-5. I am currently working on my masters in education as a reading specialist at Louisiana State University in Shreveport. I joined this site to stay up-to-date with technology, reading techniques, and general education.
Hi everyone, joined here a while back but can't really remember if I posted any introductions yet.
Maylyn here from Singapore. I worked as an electronics teacher for a vocational college for the past 8 years, just recently took on a new role as an instructional designer. I am working on a project to create authentic learning environment using virtual world. Also developing strategies to encourage more participatory learning with web 2.0 tools as well as community of practices.
I think I am gonna need a lot guidance from you all. Thanks!
Hi, I'm Paul and I work in N. Royalton, Ohio. I currently have Moodle course for my 8th grade American History students that we use daily. I am interested in getting started with blogging and came upon this site. I would be interested in hearing thoughts and suggestions regarding blogging in school.
Like you, I am interested in having a blog for my students, and I am from Ohio. On this site I met Dan Klumper who invited my class to write on his blog (because now I live in Egpt and have 6th graders here). His site is the best example I have seen yet, and I venture to say that he would be helpful to you. Here is the class site
What a great idea! I would do basic skills and use supplemental novels. You could also do study guide activities on the wiki as well. Critical thinking, problem solving, journal writing...so many things. I would really like to hear how this works.
I'm Lisa Miller, and I'm a professor of journalism at the University of New Hampshire, where I also teach a digital storytelling class for K-12 teachers. I've been working in elementary classrooms over the last year and am hoping to talk with more elementary teachers who do digital storytelling with their students. I'm also interested in anything anybody's doing with technology!
