Hello! I'm Karen from Austin, TX - active PTA volunteer and founder of VolunteerSpot.
I'm passionate about eliminating busy work so teachers and parents can get on to the more important things. VolunteerSpot does just that. Its a free web tool that automates scheduling, signups and reminder messages, makes clipboard signup sheets obsolete, and helps teachers and parent helpers get to bed on time. (test proctors, parent-teacher conference scheduling, classroom volunteers, boosters, etc.) We're still fine-tuning. Please check us out and share your feedback - click the red feedback button at the top of the site.
My name is Bill Ferriter and I've been stumbling around in the digital soup for a few years now trying to make sense of what easy access to new tools for creation, communication and collaboration mean for learners. I've done a lot of work with digital tools in my sixth grade classroom and have been writing with regularity about my own interaction with digital tools on my blog.
I'm also long time member of the Teacher Leaders Network----one of the longest lived online learning communities----so I feel comfortable connecting electronically.
I'm excited about joining the conversation here, though, because your dialogue is focused on an area of deep personal and professional interest.
Here's to hoping that I can add as much to this conversation as I'm sure to take away!
Welcome aboard, I know you'll learn a lot. Feel free to start some discussions on things that interest you. You can also search for common topics (blogs, wikis, student email, etc) or check out tags on the right!
Jason Strong from Warsaw, VA. This year has been a huge step for me as an professional. I feel like I've opened quite a few windows for my students to crawl through to access the digital world this year, and I'm hoping to make those windows doors next year. It is clear to see the benefits of this network, as I have already used it to connect to another English teacher on the other side of the globe. I can't wait to see the possibilities that emerge through this association of devoted educators.
Please forgive my ridiculous profile picture. I refuse to be taken too seriously!
Hi! I'm Angenz aka Ange from New Zealand and this is my first time on classroom 2.0. I am currently facilitating in 7 schools and would love to hear from people who are using ICT in their classes. I have just started a new wiki www.ictdigitialnatives.wikispaces.com to help teachers see examples of how ICT can be used in their class!
