Hello, My name is Kevin and I am studying to be an art/digital media teacher. I am currently writing my final paper at Konstfack College University in Stockholm, Sweden. I am just getting started with my work and will be researching the use of social media tools in education. I am particularly interested in how wikis, blogs and other social media can be tools for reflection and growth. I am also interested in how posting works done in the classroom to a blog can help the student to gain greater feedback than in the classroom environment, as well as establish future contacts.
If anyone out there could help me with answering a questionnaire or possibly a short interview (via msn (or the like) or telephone (at my cost from Sweden) then I would be grateful. I'm just interested in how educators use the social media tools available to them in the classroom. You don't have to be an art teacher. I thought it would be fun to use social media to gain insight into social media.
My name is Heather Ross and I'm an instructional designer with a college system in Saskatchewan, Canada. I've been an education blogger for almost five years and have been a part of the EdTech Posse Podcast for almost four years.
While I don't work with a K-12 system, I do think that you folks who are, are doing innovative and interesting things with educational technology that those of us in post-secondary can learn from.
I'm Laura, from Catalonia (Spain). I'm an English teacher in my school. I decided to join you to learn a little bit more about webs 2.0 and to encourage myself to integrate them into my classroom.
Nice to meet you all!
Hey y'all, I am Jeanae Graves in Enterprise, Alabama. I am the Elementary Technology Support Interventionist. New position this year. I absolutely love my job! I have VISIONS of what I would like to see happening, but we have to take it one step at a time! Looking for ways to increase interest in using the technology in awesome ways. Looking for ways to get teachers interested in their Smartboards for what it can truly do. (Instead of a projector screen) I have been teaching for 16 years.
Welcome Jeanae! I would love your job! I am also a huge fan of technology, but I do agree with you in the sense that we will have to take it one step at a time. What do you like the most about your job?

Hey everyone. I am the Coordinator of Teacher Programs at MoMA. Looking forward to connecting with the community and sharing information and resources. We had a great workshop here last week in collaboration with Art21 that focused on Contemporary Art. There were local, national and international teachers in attendance which allowed for a great conversations and sharing of ideas. When I am not teaching about art, I can be found cycling and luckily the weather here in NYC is getting better!
