I am a Tel leader and lecturer in the Travel and Tourism faculty of an HE college in Cape Town. I have always enjoyed technology and exploring how it can be used in the class room. There have been failures, and successes that have taught me a lot in terms of how to use technology to create blended learning.
Look forward to the summit, and send greetings from Cape Town, South Africa.

Hello all! My name is Charmaine, and I'm the Community Advocate at QuickSchools.com, a fully online school management system. I joined the team recently with the goal of connecting with cool + wise educators like you guys. Not here to sell our product at all; instead, I'm here to learn! You see, I'm also a senior at the University of Oregon studying journalism and considering a career in libraries, so I'm most passionate about education technology and digital media storytelling. Lastly, I'm a social media addict, so find me on @QuickSchools or my personal account @noodlemaine. Looking forward to connecting with everyone!
Greetings everyone. My name is Aira Abdrahim and I'm from Malaysia. I currently resides in Raleigh, North Carolina, completing my Doctoral program at NC State University. Happy to join the group and get connected with all educators out there.
My name is Nalan. I was born in Famagusta town in 1967. I am Turkish Cypriot living and working here in North Cyprus. I've been teaching English as a Foreign Language since 1989. When I graduated from the university, I worked for government schools for three years but then decided to work at the English Preparatory School of Eastern Mediterranean Univeristy. Apart from teaching, I am interested in learner autonomy, integrating technology into classroom teaching and currently Web 2.00 tools. I completed my Master's degree in Educational Technology and TESOL at the University of Manchester in 2001. I have just completed an online Certificate course from The Consultants-E , London. This summer I will be attending a technology course in Bodrum, Turkey.
Since last July I have been integrating Web 2.0 tools into my teaching. I have created a blog and would like to share it with you.http://nalan-summerschool2011.blogspot.com/
I am pleased to be part of this community and share my experiece with you all. Kind regards, Nalan Guder
Hi, I'm Cynthia Sarver from SUNY Cortland in Central NY, where I teach English preservice teachers, among other things, how to use new media to foster constructivist teaching environments. I have been a member of this community for a while, but for some odd reason, have not begun participating til now. I should also mention that my students and I are collaborating with Jim Groom and Alan Levine this semester in their #ds106 MOOC and are having a great time and learning a TON!
Hello all! I am the training coordinator for a program in a state agency in Virginia. I am very interested in educational technology and am currently working towards an MA in learning technologies through Pepperdine University. It's an awesome program!
My agency has a statewide videoconferencing system, so I use that equipment lots in my training. We also use online learning. For my action research in grad school I'm working on using online discussion to supplement our online training efforts especially. Hopefully we will one day use online discussion and even social media widely in our agency. There's still a fairly rigid view that social media is for fun, not for learning, though, in our state government. That view is changing, but slowly.
Look forward to learning from and with all of you!
