Hello everyone. I'm Greg Hart. I am the Art and Technology Integration Specialist for Hillsborough County Magnet Schools, in Tampa, Florida. I am glad to find this Ning devoted to Web 2.0 technology and education. I am really working to bring some of this technology into our schools and hope to find a lot of great resources here.
My name is Aparna. I am the founding Mom of Parentella.com. Parentella is for parents and teachers to connect around a class and share information about class news, homework, events, field trips, common class calendar etc. It is only for parents and educators.
I am here to learn more from a teacher's perspective. Parentella has local businesses advertising on the site and our goal is to become an ongoing revenue stream generator for schools and classes. It is time that educators focus on education and not on money.
It is a big dream and goal and I am prepared for the challenge. Thank you for letting me be here! I appreciate it.
Hi to all
What a fantastic site...how have I missed it for so long?! I'm Brenda Mooney and I work for Liverpool City Council as a School Improvement Officer dor ICT, prior to this I was a VLE consultant, ICT Consultant and Faculty Leader in a large secondary school.(All in the last 12 years) I had a previous life before education in Media (TV researcher).
I've only been in my current (and fantastic) job for 6 months and this is the very first opportunity for so very long to have a freehand in creating, instigating and supporting schools in the use of emerging technologies....so quiet new-ish to this freedom and would appreciate any pointers, case studies on HANDHELD TECH projects, E-Safety resources and of course web 2.0 resources. Many thanks and I really look forward to working and collaborating with you. Bx
Hi, my name is Emily Petrosky and I teach Kindergarten at Coronado Elementary in Salina, KS. This is will be my second year teaching and I just joined Web 2.0.

Hello everyone - I'm Sam Walker - an educator from NC. I was previously the Tech Facilitator at Bolton Elementary, but am moving to help open the newly constructed Kimmel Farm Elementary - a new building with lots of tech advantages. I'm hoping my membership to Classroom 2.0 will help me bring added insight into helping Kimmel Farm become a connected and progressive school using all of its resources to their fullest extent.
Hi! I am Kylee Comeau and am a 1st grade teacher in Salina, Kansas. This is my 5th year of teaching, having taught at risk reading, 2nd grade, and title 1 reading and math. Looking forward to being in the same job 2 years in a row this year!! I am currently working on my masters degree through Baker University and joined Classroom 2.0 as a part of a unit for our technology class. I had no idea there were resources like this out there!! I'm learning so much!! I am new to Ning and all this new vocabulary is making my head spin!! Here's to an afternoon of exploration on Classroom 2.0!
Hello! I teach 12th grade English, including Humanities, British literature, and a course in 20th century British and American novels and plays. I'm interested in sharing lessons and approaches for the classroom.
Vanessa here. I'm starting my fourth year teaching English at a 1:1 at-risk high school north of Houston. We have a small school, usually a little under 200 students who all have laptops that they can take home with them.
I'm one course away from my M.Ed. in Admininstration, but I'm really not looking to leave the classroom anytime soon. I just wanted to earn my degree before my husband and I started a family. We just got married this summer in Dunnottar Castle on the coast of Scotland. He's Scottish, so it was the perfect excuse to have the wedding over there. I'm not planning on leaving the US anytime soon, either.
