My name is Amanda Wilson. I teach Spanish at Appalachian State University & Caldwell Community College in Boone, NC and Mayland Community College in Spruce Pine, NC but I'm applying to a Teacher Ed PhD program in Lincoln, Nebraska--so I hope to be out there by this time next year.

I'm a bit (heh) of a tech-head. You can find all my projects and info on my website: http://www.amandalwilson.com/

I'm interested in facilitating student learning via web 2.0 tools and I'm interested in researching assessment, both at the classroom and program levels with a special emphasis on making assessment more authentic, valid, and culturally responsive.

I'm also in the beginnings of developing an online textbook/hybrid course in beginning Spanish. If anyone's interested in taking a peek, the URL is https://sites.google.com/site/espanolorganico/ and I'd be extremely grateful for any feedback.

Thanks! :)
Hello all! My name is Alison Paulette and I'm a librarian at a 9-12 high school in the semi-rural area of Appomattox, Virginia. This is my third year as librarian. Prior to that I was home for 10 years with my 5 daughters and getting my masters. We are a small county and I'm at the only high school with about 700 students. After years in elementary ed, I'm surprised at how much I like high school. The librarian (or should I say School Media Specialist) has an important role in school instructional technology in that s/he is a leader in its uses and applications, at least that's how I view it. I've been very successful with getting teachers to use new things. My biggest hit this year has been animoto. So now I've got to find something else to wow them with.
Welcome Alison! Good to see a fellow Virginian!
Hi Everyone,

We've been around for 6 years and have both free and premium ($20/yr) plans. The best part of the site is meeting and interacting with so many great teachers from all over the world. I look forward to more of that here.

Thanks,
Matt

Hi all,

My name is Tim and I teach 8th grade science in McKinney Tx, I submitted a proposal for IPads in our science classrooms last spring and it was approved during the summer break. Ninety five arrived today which will be divided into 3 classroom sets of 30 (20Wi Fi 32gb and 10 3G 32GB) with 5 teachers getting the bigger 3G 64GB. The student 3G devices will be available for checkout by our lower socio-economic students on an as needed basis.
We have already chosen a few apps to incoprorate into our lessons...NASA, Discovery, Google Earth, Easy Chart HD. TED, Moon Phase, Video Science, Brain Pop and gFlashPro and a few more. Apple Reps are coming Monday to give 5 teachers and 4 student facilitators tips on operations in an all day class. We are very excited to get started!
Tim,
