Looking for MS teacher to skype into a PD for Middle School teachers and discuss 2.0 in the classroom

I am designing a tech summer institute for 50 middle school teachers around 21st century learning and teaching. I am working on making this PD as authentic as possible. I want to use regular teachers from outside of our district to present different ideas, uses, strategies etc. I would need the teachers to Skype in for possibly 30-45min during the week of June 15th 2009. The 50 teachers are extremely excited about the journey they are about to take.

I have a preso I've done this spring on using iGoogle to help build a PLN (or just learn how to use feeds to gather information for that matter). On the first three days of that week I'm busy until 4 pm Central time, but open on Thursday and Friday of that week. What a great idea!
Hi Adora. I would be interested in helping out, if it could work in with our time zones. I am in Australia. I have presented to quite a few conferences on this very topic and have used skype extensively, locally and globally. Anyway let me know.
I am more than willing to do what I can to make this work as I would love to see my school get on board with the 21st century... and by helping you I would be, obviously, helping myself. I am currently using 2.0 tools within my reading support classes and am teaching an elective "2.0" class at this time. Please let me know what you need me to do.
"Regular" teacher - hmm - I think I'm fairly off-beat, but whatever...

I teach Grade 7 in Atlantic Canada (GMT-4), and I've been using 2.0 tools to collaborate with a teacher in Australia. Our skyping has been limited because he's 14 hours ahead of me, but we've had a good time anyway.

I'm admittedly new to all this - I'm no expert - but I'd be willing to help out if I can.
Very interested, but we are at an elementary school level. We are doing the same thing on June 8th and 9th for all level teachers maybe we can build a database for teachers that would like to colloborate?
Hi, my name is Leon Avrech retired middle school teacher and principal, 37 yrs. I recently had my book published,
"THINK YOU CAN TEACH? A SURVIVAL GUIDE FOR NEW MIDDLE SCHOOL TEACHERS". If you work with new teachers this is a tremendous help. Sometime you have to start at the basics. Classroom management, lesson plans, parent conferences, etc. A very low price at Amzaon.com or from the publisher, Xlibris.com Thank you, Leon, San Jose, CA
