Hi! My name is Chris Brandt, and I teach art to Prek, Kinder, 1st and 8th grade girls. Glad to be here!
I'm Zoe P. Midler, Librarian at a K-8 charter school in Colorado. Just completed my rookie year and moving in the fall to a brand new facility.

My background is in the business world as a CI analyst & software product manager. I swung a substantial grant that will allow me to create a technology oasis in the library, e.g., computers, SMART board, online databases, etc. I am very jazzed to finally get the chance to teach research strategy and be an information environment guide to both students and staff.

I am very happy to have found Classroom 2.0 and I am eager to learn and share with other members.
Hello! I'm returning to the classroom this fall after a brief stint as a writer/editor. I'll be teaching in Richmond, VA!

Hello everybody! I'm Evelyn and I'm a teacher from Austria. My "second" profession is student on the university of applied siences in Dornbirn. At the moment I write on my masterthesis: collaborative learning with web 2.0. I started a blog and a wiki for my class, but at the moment its not really good, I think. Hope I can find informations and collegues here!
Hello Evelyn,

Would you like to evaluate our web 2.0 software for management of your class (school). We are very interested in the Austrian education system. So far it looks that it is really very similar to Czech and Slovak one. Let me know if you are interested. Here is an example how it helps for czech teachers and students


I am Martin Trgina from Prague, Czech Republic. We are developing specialized web application that helps students, teachers, parents share and present student info, schedules, class portal, forums, calendars and much more very easy via web browser. It is possible to share selected data also with municipality bodies to eliminate administrative tasks for school.

Now we are looking for user response from various education systems in Europe and also K-12. If your class or school would be interested to use the Tahuti for free and tell us your opinion we would be more than happy.Take a look at Tahuti Demo and let us know at Tahuti User Community

So far we have response mainly from schools in Czech and Slovak republic as well as municipality bodies in this region.
Hey folks, Blaine Transue here. From instruction to infrastructure I have been supporting education technology since 1985.
Hello everyone,

My name is Mike O'Hara. I am located in the Boston, Ma area. I was a former High School History and Math Teacher turned entrepreneur. The focus of my company is developing both communities and enterprise software (I know the two do not seem to mix, but we're trying to do things a bit differently). One of our focuses attempting to pull schools out of the 20th century, by working directly with teachers and staff in improving their computer domain knowledge. We stay year round at schools to create meaningful learning at no cost to schools.

Don't worry, I am not here to sell anything to anyone. In fact, I'm not even going to give you my website. What I am here for is meaningful discussion. I like to ask a lot of questions and I give my help where I see fit.

I look forward to talking with many of you.

Hi Mike,
I am a high school English teacher in rural Wisconsin. (lived in Wayland for a while growing up--love the east coast.) I am curious what your meaningful learning really means. I am implementing as many 21st century skills as I can in my classes, but find it difficult to blend the time required for reading of novels, etc. and using these skills. I would appreciate any ideas you have.
Hi, Robin, middle science teacher at an independent school in Rochester NY. Had the first internet connection in my school in the early 90's...been looking for good educational networking ever since. Feel it is up to schools to take kids below the superficial, play side of digital technology, but right now mostly they are running behind. Looking forward to being with some people out in front (or at least willing to struggle with me to get past the tail end).
