Jamey here! I teach second graders in Middleton, Idaho. I'm a student at Boise State University (go Broncos!). I earned my bachelor's in 2000 and hoping to soon complete my master's in Educational Technology. I am here because the class I am currently taking is about social networking and I'm still getting to know different social networking sites.
I am a full time graduate student at Arcadia University in PA and I am in the Dual Cert Program for elementary and special ed. I am hoping to graduate in July/August and Student teach in Fall 2011. I am still working part time in the health care admin field so I am quite a busy girl! I am looking forward to getting to know everyone and to hearing about your experiences in the classroom.
Hello, My name is Art Lieberman and I teach in East Texas. I discovered Web 2.0 almost a year ago at a conference in Galveston where the Digital Goonies presented. In the past year I've used Animoto and Prezi a lot. I also use drop.io quite often with my students. I'd like to learn more and expand what I'm doing with my students. The love it whenever we use the computer.
Hello everyone! I just became a member this afternoon! I have often visited this site for great ideas. I am an Instructional Technology Resource Teacher in Suffolk, Virginia, USA. Basically, I help teachers integrate technology into their daily instruction. Right now, I'm working on my graduate degree at Virginia Tech (online) in instructional technology and I plan to use this site to help me with my course work. I look forward to networking and gaining new insights with collaborative technologies!
Have you ever heard of WIPTE? http://www.wipte.org/ -- It is a Workshop on the Impact of Pen-based Technology on Education... and the reason I thought of you is their 2010 conference is being held Oct 25 - 26 at Virginia Tech. It might be a very interesting conference for you.
They discuss topics such as:
- Why are Tablet PCs better than notebooks PCs in the classroom?
- What software really makes a difference?
- Do Tablet PCs really work for education?
They have been publishing research on the impact that Tablet PCs have had in education for the past few years, and they have seen some interesting results. My fav is "A Decreased drop/fail/withdraw rate from 59% to below 20% in a Clemson University calculus class"... Clemson is a HP customer!
