My name's Dave Robertshaw and my focus is on elementary and middle school math. My colleagues and I recently started a new free site with interactive tools for improving fractions instruction (http://www.conceptuamath.com). The tools are free and are designed for whole-class instruction. We hope instructors will try them out and give us their feedback.
My name is Thomas and I'm a math facilitator in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada. I'm always looking for new and effective ways to enhance the math experience for students. Lately, I'm looking for new ways to effectively integrate technology (web 2.0) into mathematics.
Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
I use twitter for professional purposes and post anything that I think is beneficial for mathematics in education.

I am also a member of the European programme eTwinning, aimed at electronic collaboration between/among European schools, having been involved in several international project partnerships for students and learning events for teachers.
I consider this a great opportunity to exchange teachers' knowledge and experience worldwide.
I look forward to being in touch with all of you and learning new things from you:)
Hi, I am an elementary school technology teacher in NYC. I have been teaching for 8 years, however, I have been a technology teacher for only 3 years.

Hello, My name is Kathy Wilson, and will have completed my masters in August, in educational leadership (after a 30 year break from my BS). This forum is new to me, as I am sure many others have said. I am an on-line instructor for alternative health courses, and trying to find new and different ways of reaching my adult students. Although I live in Michigan, the school is out of Colorado.
Greetings! My name is Cathy Olson, and currently I live in Forest City, Iowa, but will be moving at the end of July because I've accepted a teaching job in Boone, Iowa. Also, I am currently enrolled in a Masters program in Educational Technology through the University of Northern Iowa. I am a mother of three teenagers (well, one is 12, but that is close enough). I have been married for 18 years. I enjoy running 5Ks and 10Ks, reading, technology, and being with family. I am happy and excited to join Classroom 2.0, for I think I will learn much!
Hi, Phil Pretty here in Cartwright, Labrador. I teach JH/SH math/science. I will be moving to Northern Alberta to teach math in September 2010. Does anyone have any recommendations on an Educational Technology Master's degree program by distance?

I've been blogging for over three years, you can take a look at my site here: shankarganesh.com (not trying to promote, but just saying).
I'm in my summer vacations now and I'm working as an intern at Zoho Corp, India.
I joined this community because education is something that runs through my blood. I think the current factory model is broken (like Sir Ken Robinson says) and I want to contribute, at least in small levels, to improve the way students are being taught and treated.
I know this is the right place to talk to people who're shaping the future, and I can't wait to have interactions with the teachers over here.
Hello all...I've been a member awhile and like to think I have 1000s of teacher friends. Currently I am trying social networking to get a small microgrant for summer literacy resources...please vote for me! (www.weareteachers.com microgrant tab--then look for "beat the summer slide"...click on vote, then in the "search applicants" box, type LAURA KING. I'm on the page...second one down. Just follow the directions...WOW, if I could get this little grant, I will know that social networking between teachers is not only fun, educational, supportive...but it actually gets you some money. As our district struggles more and more with the financial crunches, as well as the increasing expectations, I think it is important to expand our resources and be creative. '
Anyone out there ever received a social networking grant? I have found all the vote recruting a little tiring, but each time I see my totals go up, I get pretty excited!!
