Hi, I am Lyn and I teach reading at a middle school in Pensacola, Florida. I teach students that made level 1 or 2 on their FCAT Reading test. Most middle school teachers teach 6 classes a day but I have three 90 minute block classes. I would love share ideas with anyone that could help me become a better teacher.
My name is Jenny and I am an Instructional Technology Teacher in Brookline, Massachusetts. I've been in the field for 8 years now and have been using web 2.0 tools for the past two years or so. My main goal in life as an Instructional Technology Teacher is to teach teachers that the curriculum comes first and the technology is there to support it. So much of the time, my focus is on teacher professional development. I have to be a curriculum expert and a technology expert at the same time!
Hi, I am Sabine. I just recently discovered the great idea of the flat classroom through a tutorial at Atomic Learning. I am excited about all the different features you can use to collaberate with teachers and students. I am a little overwhelmed with all the tools out there and not sure which of them are permitted by my school district. So, I think I will start with what we have at our school district. (gaggle accounts for students). I look forward to learn more about web 2.0 and its' possipilities. I think it is a great opportunity for world language learners - in my case for my German students - to be inspired to learn first hand the language and culture.
Welcome to Classroom 2.0. We look forward to hearing more about your work. Yes it is more than the 'what' but also the 'how' and 'why' of learning and teaching that comes through quite strongly in some of the forums.
Enjoy looking around and adding when ready,
Hello everyone, I have just recently joined Classroom 2.0, I am an ESL Teacher in Italy, I have just recently thrown myself into online teaching which I love and the whole aspect of technology really interests me I would like to learn more, it fascinates me...
You sound so positive about your job which is very inspiring. I think you will find CR2.0 a great place to explore the potential of new technologies and online learning.
Thanks for joining,
Hope you are all well. I am from Sydney, Australia. I work specifically with web 2.0 products and run a couple of start ups here in Australia. I have just recently launched one with the education sector in mind. I have posted a discussion about this in the Shameless Vendor Discussions forum :) Would love to get your feedback on here.
Looking forward to having some discussions around other web2.0 products for education.
Wow, must have a look at the forum and add a comment. Yes, Web 2.0 certainly is taking a more prominent place in schools at the moment. There are still some areas in education though, that teachers and students cannot access many online resources that can hinder the uptake of these emerging trends.
All the best with the venture,
Hi, I can't remember whether I have already done this or not so here we go maybe again.
My name is Heather Davis and I am a Canadian from a small town outside of Toronto called Paris, Ontario.
For the past 4 years and the coming future I live in Beijing, China and teach Grade 4/Year 5 at Yew Chung International School of Beijing. We use the National Curriculum of Great Britain as our foundation. For the past two years I have had a Promethean IWB and our school is very open to technology.
Your teaching career sounds really interesting. I think you will find quite a few discussions here about the use of different technologies including the IWBs. If you look down the right hand side you will notice links to 'tools' and IWBs is one of them.
Enjoy looking around,
My name is Jayne Peters and I am from Nova Scotia, Canada. I work with both teachers and their students helping them integrate technology into their classrooms. I am currently doing some research into social software and stumbled across this site. I am looking forward to participating.
