I teach English at a university in Japan. I`ll be using tumblr with a couple of my classes this year, but other than that I`m pretty low tech (we still use blackboards...I mean the ones with chalk, not the VLE version!)
Other than that, I`m especially interested in using technology for my own development. Please drop by and say hello ; )
Hello, my name is Mackenzie and I just returned to the US from three years in South Korea. I am now an ESL Director at Elmira College. I am so excited about web 2.0 materials that I created a wetpaint site. If you are interested in posting any lesson plans or videos this is a great place to do it. The site is: http://esltwopointoresources.wetpaint.com/ I also look forward to being an active member for this site! Nice to meet you all!
Hi, I am a sociologist who teaches college students, and I do so very poorly. I am hoping to derived insights from my participation in this forum, which might inspire me to develop tactics that will improve my abilities to command the interests of the students.
Hey there everyone. I currently teach elementary music in a very rural district in Tennessee. I am looking forward to many future productive collaborations. Any suggestions/insights on how to really get this thing going would be greatly appreciated. :)

Hi, I'm Teresa McNamara from Brisbane, Australia and I teach a class of 26 Year 5 girls at St Ignatius School Toowong. I've been blogging with students for a few years now and I've been the school's administrator for Think.com since 2005. I'm looking to expand my practice into other areas of Web 2.0 to keep my students engaged.
Hi all. My name is Jeanette. I am a Business Education teacher at Mauston High School in Wisconsin. Currently I am working on a Master's through Full Sail University. The program is Educational Media Design and Technology. I am fine with all the technology we are using, but am terrified of the Thesis paper. I know I want to focus either on Social Networking in the classroom or Web 2.0 tools in the classroom. My problem is trying to write a specific thesis statement (which is due at the end of this month - EEK).
I enjoy teaching computer classes more than text-based classes. Some of the classes I teach this year are Intro to Business, Personal Finance, Basic Computers, Computer Skills, Web Page Design, and E TV (broadcasting class).
