Hi! My name is Gale Cossette. I am an instructional design specialist for virtual environments. I am contracted by universities to develop courses for graduate credit. I also facilitate courses through the University of Phoenix in Adult Education and e-Learning, as well as through the NH DOE and Plymouth State University in New Hampshire.
I look forward to gaining new insights and ideas from members of these groups and forums.
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!
I am Sally from Hong Kong. Recently I am planning a new integrated (humanity and language) project about cultures and festivals. I wonder if any of you would be interested in joining my new project about cultures and festivals. Please feel free to contact me :D
Hello Everyone! I'm Erin Powell grade 1 & 2 French Immersion in Surrey, BC, Canada. My goal this year is to use more technology in the classroom, and I'm looking forward to learning what classroom 2.0 is all about!
I live in San Jose, CA. I teach Math and Statistics at a community college. Recently, I asked my students to go watch "Waiting for 'Superman'", and email me their thoughts on how to improve K-12 education in America. I was moved and surprised by their passionate response. I collected and posted some of their comments here: http://www.examiner.com/community-colleges-in-san-jose/waiting-for-...
I look forward to integrate my classes, particularly Statistics, in Classroom20.com. Wish me luck!
I am originally from Bangladesh. Eventually I want to integrate your Services in rural areas of Bangladesh and see how digital education can transform poor children into creative citizens of the world.
Hello! I am from Lancaster, PA. I spent a great deal of time after graduating from college perfecting my role as "World's Greatest Sub." It took me six years to finally get a contract, and I am so glad that I found that the perfect place to truly begin my teaching career. I teach in a small school, where there is only one of each grade (and this year, there is no K, so we have around a 100 students in our school).
I have found that using technology is a great way to spark interest and learning in my classroom. I am excited and anxious to find ways to best use it in my lessons, and hope that being apart of this forum can help me to reach that goal. Happy learning and teaching to everyone!
