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.
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!
Hello folks! I am Chris Beedham from Warrington, England where I am Primary ICT Consultant. Constantly on the lookout for innovative ideas using ICT which I can share with colleagues, teachers and pupils I work with. Looking forward to being a part of what looks like a lively community!
I'm ilana Bittner from Columbia, MD, a community created in the "new town" design of the 1960's. Located between Washington DC and Baltimore, people move to our community for the schools... that's the #1 reason as tracked by realtors. Yet, as a parent, I see many of the same challenges as other districts. I believe we're falling behind in innovative teaching and learning, with our school system's growing fear not to mess up what we already have.
I'm also a media producer at Pixel Workshop, a media studio with e-learning clients like McGraw-Hill, Prentice Hall, and Harcourt. We also just completed our first independent production called TripFLIX, a DVD for kids and families.
Hi, my name is Jacques Cool, from New Brunswick, Canada. I've been involved in distance learning since 2001 and have been in the francophone Public education for 22 years, doing different things, mostly at the HS level. I must say that e-learning has provided me with the most exciting work experiences mainly because I've been surrounded by great colleagues and hey, this is where to be when thinking 21st-century learning and the impact of ICT. This is my fourth, no fifth, Ning community; great tool!
