Hi my name is Ursula I am from Bellingham, WA and I'm a Junior at Western Washington University in the Early Childhood program. I'm in a technology class right now and just found out about this networking site through a project I'm doing. I'll be heading into student teaching Fall of 2010 and as of now I would love to be a preschool teacher!
Hello, I am Mary T McCullagh, and I teach AP European History and AP and Honors US Government in Miami, FL.
I love web 2.0. I have had fun sharing these tools with my classes this year. We have had online community-building and cooperation with students and teachers in Israel and Germany. The students have enjoyed getting to know their peers in those settings, especially sharing their lives, ideas and curricular explorations.
Hi all! My name is Graeme Bennett, and I am a Year 5/6 teacher at Camperdown College in Victoria, Australia. Our school is a government run P-12 school in the town of Camperdown. Camperdown is in a rural area, approximately 2.5 hours west of Melbourne. I am just starting out with blogs, wikis and social networks, and I am keen to learn how I might use these tools effectively in my teaching. Looking forward to "meeting" many like-minded colleagues in the various discussions!
Hi all. I'm Greg and I'm not a teacher...yet. I am an attorney and published children's book author making a mid-career switch into the education field, starting with a Masters in Teaching program at Brandeis University that begins three weeks from now. It's the DeLeT program with a concentration in Jewish Day Schools. I'm especially interested in the use of technology in the classroom, and I want to make connections with others in the profession and to learn from them, so here I am.
Hi I'm Bev Humphrey I'm an LRC Manager/Learning Gateway Coordinator and Lead Practitioner for Literacy from Greenhithe in England. The school I work at is a large all boys comprehensive in a fairly socially deprived area. My passion is encouraging our boys to read by using web 2.0 technologies and international links and I run an international collaborative writing event called the Write Path. Nice to 'meet' you!
Greetings and salutations! I'm Emily Northcutt and I'm a Library Media Specialist at a public PreK-8 school in rural Kentucky. I've been a school librarian for all eight years of my career and LOVE it.
I have had a blog for my library for about 2 years, but I am very interested in learning how to incorporate other 2.0 technologies into content instruction. I'm intrigued by wikis and getting concrete ideas of how to best use the iPod touch as an instructional took.
This is Mary Howard, I'm a sixth grade teacher from Grand Island, New York. I teach Social Studies and English Language Arts. I've managed to dive head first into the integrating technology to the curriculum initiative and have created LOTS that I'm willing to share. www.yoursmarticles.blogspot.com. Networking has helped immensely in my technology knowledge and I can't wait to tap into the Classroom 2.0 resources!!
My name is Monica Wagner, and I teach German and English in Indiana. I am interested in using all kinds of technology to enhance student learning. I think it is especially valuable for World Languages, as I can access the German language as it is used TODAY! I am looking into developing a Ning for my AP Literature and also my German classes.
Oh, my web site, http://www.missfrau.com is something I've been using in my classes for several years but it's always a work in progress.
I've been exploring Classrom 2.0 and Ning in Education....but I always feel like I could be learning more. Any helpful resources or suggestions are welcome!
