Welcome Beth.

There are quite a few people who teach college students as well. Many people are also involved in several personal/professional learning communities. If you have another one that that works well, feel free to share that too!

If you have something you are looking for in particular, try the tags on the right side of the page or you can start your own discussion in the forum area.
Hi everyone. I'm from Sydney, Australia. Thought I'd join in and share the discussion. I've just begun using web2 tools with my year 3 class (8-9 year olds) and have not as yet made a connection globally with another class - I seem to be taking it slowly and getting used to being connected myself I suppose. (Can be a bit overwhelming at times). I'm looking forward to spending more time here.
Hello Grace. Great to see you here. This is where I really got started, established a network of friends and got into web2.0 thoroughly. So check out the discussions and forums as there is a wealth of material there.
Wow! Grace - that sounds great with the younglings using Web2.0 stuff. Our district mostly blocks this stuff, well atleast until they update their policies from the 90s. Ha!

Do tell - what kind of stuff are you doing?
Hello a ning.noob

Researching the use of SNs in education. Interesting stuff so far, learning the ins and outs of this platform.

What do you all find are some *major* differences between this platform and say, the other SNs like Facebook and MySpace?
It can take some time to really get to know all the opportunities available on this or other Nings. I find the main difference is that your personal page is just one small piece of the puzzle. The forum discussions and resources provide a common place for comments, questions, and conversations. I find it easier to find to what I'm looking for (tags) and more focused as well.

Hope it helps! Welcome
I'm Brandy. I'm a media developer in our faculty development office for a community college. I've been hanging out on Classroom 2.0 for a couple months and really enjoy the discussion, resources and webcasts offered.
Hi Brandy
Great to have your perspective here from higher education. It's amazing how many issues translate from Kinder through University.

This is Alan from the Kamehameha Schools in Honolulu, Hawai'i. I am an Instructional Technology Specialist for the elementary campuses. We recently hosted an EdTech Conference for Hawai'i teachers. Our keynote speakers were Will Richardson, David Warlick, and Mark Standley. Glad to be here in Classroom 2.0!

Welcome Alan
Great opportunity to have such well respected speakers at the conference. Classroom 2.0 is a great place to continue some of those great conference conversations. Good to have you here.
My name is Myles Webb and Im a Intermediate School Teacher (Y7/8) from Tamaki Intermediate, Auckland, New Zealand. The kids that I teach are predominatly Pacific Island and Maori students so getting their world view expanded is huge. Involving our class in web activities this year has really lit a spark for some of them... Our class blog is mainly focussing on short sharp videos because they're very much of the 'tube' generation... but motivating the students to share their cultures with others around the world has been such a huge positive for the students. Im looking for different classrooms to buddy up and swap work, and if anyones interested they can log onto and have a look at what were doing... I think sites like this are so important for sharing information. swapping ideas and the like... theres so much here... its great!
Hello Myles, I am from Australia and it is great to have you here as a member of My students love multi media and digital storytelling plus we are into video conferencing as well, so let me know if you would like to team up with us. Our students all have individual blogs.
