I'm Jamie. I've lived in the SF Bay Area all of my life (well... except the first two years and while I was in the Army.) I work at St. Ignatius College Prep in San Francisco and teach nights at the Castro Valley Adult School.
For the most part, I'm a Mac and FileMaker Pro expert, but my business card says "Business Analyst and Mac Guru".
I have looked at classroom2.0 but just never found the need to sign up. I use facebook for my personal networking, but wasn't sure about using this as professional networking, so I'm excited and interested to see the possibilities.
I work on school improvement projects for a district just outside Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. I also do consulting for different organizations, and to do writing and speaking nationally and internationally on topics like differentiated instruction, technology in education and adult facilitation strategies.
I am the proud momma to two amazing teenagers. For fun, I like to hang out at Fry's and gaze at the shiny gadgets, golf, ski and read.
I'm also at NECC for the first time ever, and I'm enjoying it! I'm a little distressed with how my hair is getting exponentially bigger as the days go by in San Antonio. I'm afraid I'm going to take someone's eye out.
I'm Jeff Johnson, technology coordinator in the Glendale-River Hills School District in Glendale, WI. I have a great life partner, 2 dogs, 3 semi-grown chiildren, a bicycle and still love working in schools afyer having done so for more than 20 years.
I've been an educator since 1983 and involved in technology leadership and advocacy -- in an official capacity, at least -- since 1996.
I'm originally from Minnesota and made it to Wisconsin via Missouri (78-83) and Florida (83-86).
I'm Christine I'm going to be teaching 6th Grade technology this year. I've had my Master's Degree in Learning Technologies/ Educational Technology since 1997, the internet was just starting to be used in the classrooms, besides mine, at that time.
I live in NJ, I am married, and have 2 children. I taught for 10 years as an elementary classroom teacher, and staff development instructor, and then I decided to stay home with my children for a few years. During my time as a SAHM(stay at home mom), I ran an internet business, so I've returned to teaching last Sept. I've been a member of a number of social networking forums related to my internet business, so I'm looking forward to connecting with other educators and how they use technology.
Glad to find the site since I'll be teaching technology this year! I'm looking forward to 2.0!
I'm a teacher of gifted student in Birmingham, AL. This was soooo easy to join since I already had an NING account with my HS alumni site. I'm looking to learn more.... I'm just starting to learn about SL but seem to be walking in circles and teleporting to empty sites:)
Howdy all. Jerry Clayton here from Denver, CO. I teach Career and Technical Education at Denver West High School. In particular, Multimedia, Web Page Design and Desktop Publishing. I also do the Yearbook, the school paper and am the FBLA (Future Business Leaders if America) adviser. WOW! Try to get all that on a business card. Anyway, I'm happy to be here and would love to haer from anyone who shares similar experience or interest. I have been en educator for 6 years. Prior to that I was in sales and salesmanagement for 30 years.
Hey Jerry, Welcome! I also came from an industry background to teach at a CTE school - my subject is Graphic Communications and Printing Technology. I've been at it now for 11 years and I still love getting up every day.
Like you, I'm also the yearbook advisor. (my class just completed their first)
Web 2.0 technologies allow for all sorts of yearbook management opportunities. We use Flickr as an image server and Moodle as a content management tool. Every day seems to offer new technologies that I can use with my students. We're going to create a digital yearbook in addition to our paper format this coming year and this site has been a terrific boost in helping me get a handle on how to keep my kids engaged in their learning. Let me know if I can help you in any way.
Hi. I'm Kate. I teach math to high school students in a day treatment setting for students with emotional impairments. Glad to be here. A lot of the topics are topics that I'm interested in. Happy to be a part of it all.
I have always been interested in teaching, and I understand the power of the Internet to teach. I have set up my own Ning web site on my specialty subject which is MS Access, called "MS Access Hints and Tips" .
I demonstrate some of the things that you need to know about MS Access the things they don't teach you in books.
I use Camtasia to do screen recordings (screencams) and then I save them to a web site called Viddler which saves the video in a high definition format, so that when you view it it does not look fuzzy like the screencams on YouTube.
I was looking through the list of "popular Ning sites" and saw this one "Classroom 2.0" found your explanation of web 2.0 realize that defining Web 2.0 in your own wiki was so very web 2.0 (ironic) which I liked! That's why I joined up.
Hi, I'm Erin. I've been an Educational Technologist for 17 years in a K-5 school in Rockaway, NJ. I'm married and have 2 children. Along with teaching computers to students, I am responsible for all the technology in my building, am head teacher and teach some staff development courses. I work a lot with the teachers to help them incorporate teachnology into their daily lessons. I'm looking forward to sharing as well as learning a few new things!
