My name is Eli Gideon Steier. I am grateful for my life and I really enjoy it!
I am originally from Queens, but now reside on Long Island. I am a former professional actor who cares deeply about education.
I have a lot of varied interests which include, but are not limited to: biking, reading, writing, fishing, farming, languages, exploring, sustainability, construction, playing frisbee, the outdoors, learning about anything and everything!
I have found that every individual brings a unique perspective to the world and I look forward to learning from the various people on Classroom 2.0 .
I am also a passionate, young, certified English teacher currently looking for a teaching position on. Long Island. For those that are in charge of hiring on Long Island, I can assure you that it will be difficult to find a teacher who will work as hard for the students as I will.
My name is Neal Grigsby and I am recently graduated from MIT's Comparative Media Studies program where I worked on the New Media Literacies Project under Dr. Henry Jenkins. There I created educational materials around media production, including blogging, video games, and Wikipedia. I've recently been trying to apply what I learned to a Web 2.0 project called Tikatok.com. It is a website that allows younger children to create and share their own picture books. We give them various tools to collaborate, connect with and learn from their peers, and circulate their books.
The team just yesterday released an update to the site that enables teachers to register their classrooms very easily, and track student work through a teacher dashboard. Thought it might be of interest to the folks here, and am eager to hear your perspectives on it. It's a little rough around the edges at the moment, and I really want to make it a useful tool for teachers! So please tell me what you think!

Hi, my name is Kevin Gilchrist. I teach Social Studies in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. I'm always looking for good ideas to incorporate into my own teaching practice, and I'm very interested in integrating technology and Web 2.0 tools more in my classroom this coming school year, and subsequent years.

Hello, My name is Gina and I live in Minneapolis, MN - I teach computer technology to Adult Basic Ed students through the Minneapolis Public School system.
