Hi everyone - I've only just been introduced to Ning this year and it's been great to find a community so passionate about Web 2.0 as the future of education. I'm an executive in my school and I see it as my job to help facilitate the incorporation of new technologies in education, even if I am not the expert. I joined this group so I could learn more - are there any other Australians out there or is it mainly a US based group?

My name is Anna Leijon-Guth and I am originally from Sweden, moved to Portsmouth, NH 14 years ago and love it! I am currently in the process of getting certified as a computer teacher, since technology and photography are 2 of my passions. I am looking forward to be a member of this network and to soak up, as well as share my knowledge with all of you!
Hello to all. I'm Ed Rousculp from Toppenish, Washington. After 14 years of teaching middle school and high school language arts, I moved to higher ed. I teach courses related to literacy across the curriculum and coordinate the program's ePortfolio project. I'm interested in using blogs and other Web 2.0 tools in the classroom.
Hi, my name is Joitske Hulsebosch, I'm consultant and freelance teacher. I advise about collective learning between professionals, and how to speed it up/catalyze/facilitate it. I have a particular interest in joining this ning community because more and more I am using ning, but I have a question about ways to deal with huge number of messages and interaction. Doesn't it become utterly chaotic at some point, should you start archiving? By observing this large community and how the leadership is dealing with it, I think I can already learn a lot!
