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).
Hello all! I am a middle school and high school biology teacher. In my endeavor to include inquiry-based learning, I stumbled upon web2.0 & fell in love. Only a year ago, I had no idea about twitter, blogging, wiking, google apps, embedding, widgets, social networking & bookmarking. Now, I'm not sure how to run a classroom without these tools. I am curious and love learning; this looks like an excellent place to continue my education. I look forward to exchanging ideas.
Hi, my name is Sheldon Huelin from St. John's, Newfoundland, Canada (out in the North Atlantic). I'm an Environmental Scientist teaching General Science at Memorial University of Newfoundland. I'm looking forward to learning many things in the Classroom 2.0.
M Name is Rhonda Smith. I am currently working as a Juvenile Detntion Officer for Bexar County. In addition, I am a researcher, in the middle of a research project aimed to improve the educational outcomes of students. I am looking for ideas on how social networking (Classroom 2.0) would work in a treatment facility.
I am Deborah Duncan. A 37 year teacher from a small town in Mississippi. Most of my years have been in the science classroom. I mostly teach Chemistry, Physics, and occasionally biological science. I have been waiting for computers to take a major role in education since the Tandy TRS80's. I am surprised it has taken so long. LOL
I'm Neal, a credential candidate (Biology) in the Bay Area. I heard about Classroom 2.0 while watching an Edutopia webinar on technology in the classroom, and decided to join the community. I am looking forward to learning from all of you and hopefully contributing as well.
My name is Suat. (淑珍). I am a Malaysian Chinese. I worked in Abu Dhabi Men's College for three yrs in our smart campus. Very exciting time in using various technologies esp. in our education without border conference.
Now, I am living in a very small community of 760 people, north of 64, Canada. Strong contrast to UAE situation.
Internet is a luxury here and as a community adult educator I am always looking forward to see how education + technologies move into new direction.
