Hello all! I am about to begin work as an Education Advisor in Information and Communication technology in Abu Dhabi. I would especially love to hear from anyone who has experience with the K-5 Information Literacy and Technology curriculum that comes from Australia.
Welcome aboard, Mary! I don't know what you are looking for but my students have done a ton of stuff using technology over the years--you can some of the things we've done here.
Hi. I am the librarian for a small school district in Iowa. Our three schools are technologically well supported, with wireless Mac laptops available K-12. All teachers have laptops and the student/laptop ratio is nearing 2:1. Our Information Literacy curriculum is integrated into the classroom and dovetails with the Technology Integration and Services Plan.
I travel from building to building each day and have almost no paper files. I rely on my laptop, our server and Web 2.0 tools. I work with students and with teachers at all levels to blend meaningful use of technology with information literacy skills. I am a database fanatic and our district makes significant use of the subscription resources provided to us by the state and the local area education agency. I am very interested in helping bring meaningful Web 2.0 tools to our classrooms.
Hi, my name is Shelley Artelt. I have been teaching for 19 years, the last 12 in public school at 6th grade. This is still elementary school in Fremont, CA. I am always looking for something new to keep my students interested and me too!!
I am married, going on 34 years, have two sons, 21 and 28. I enjoy reading and playing Sims2 and words games on the Internet.
Hello,
I have joined a number of nings over the years and have not spent the time necessary to truly put in or get out much of value. After listening to Liz B. Davis talk about how important this ning is to her professionally, I decided to give it another try, this time actually putting in the time necessary!
I teach k-5 students in the computer lab every week. We use a variety of applications as well as many web sites. I search endlessly for the most excellent lessons as well as create many of my own. We all seem to get a lot out of a 45 minute block!
I also have a few teachers who embrace technology and who are on quests to integrate technology into their daily lessons.
We are a busy community of learners!

Yay Linda! Welcome to Classroom 2.0. I know you will both learn a lot here and have a lot to share.

Hi! My name is Tina O'Block and I have a teaching supplies store in PA (O'Block Books). I am also an author of an alphabet curriculum for preschool and kindergarten (Now I Know My ABCs and a Whole Lot More) and an experienced teacher. I hold a Master's degree in Curriculum and Instruction and a Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education. I joined this network to talk to fellow educators and find out what is needed in teacher's classroom resources.
Hi!! Alexis Krysten, 5th and 6th grade Special Needs teacher in Camden, NJ. Looking for ways to help special needs students succeed through various technology tools.
My name is Robin and am an intermediate school (grades 5-6) tech apps teacher. I don't have a tech background, but you learn what you teach! I love my job, and wish I started in this area years ago! I am learning that it's easy to become overwhelmed and to try and concentrate on one area at a time. I just set up my first blog minutes ago, and am searching for blogs to follow. In the plunge into web 2.0, I would enjoy responses to my blog:

Welcome Aboard---I'm sure you'll learn a lot. Don't get overwhelmed.
Hi,

I am Crystal. I teach English to non-native speakers. After spending nearly 5 hours on Ning today making my classes and class groups, I'm ready to see what else I can do.

Thanks!,
Crystal
Hi all.

I am a veteran international educator who is passionate about getting all schools to think about learning versus teaching.

Some of my fav's are Seymour Papert, Ed Deming, Plato, Lao Tzu, Eduardo Chaves and currently I am very impressed with Clay Christensen's "Disrupting Class" - wow does he GET it.

Glad to see such a diverse group of concerned educators here!

Congratulations, Steve, on moving things forward for the sake of the kids...

Most sincerely,

Dr. Jorge Nelson (Jorge)
