Hi, I'm an I.T. Co-ordinator at a Jewish day school in Johannesburg, South Africa. I lived in Mauritius for 7 years and taught at a French school and then at an Independent British school. I returned to South Africa just over 2 years ago. I teach the whole school and the teachers. Most of the teachers in South Africa are IT illiterate and many have never touched a PC in their lives. I have a goal to help make South African teachers IT literate and would love to learn new things so that I can incorporate them in my teaching and teacher training. I know nothing about Classroom2.0. Please teach me so that I can teach others. Thanks.

A colleague and I are starting a Ning page (frenchbookclub.ning.com) which will follow our syllabi for a college level French and Francophone literature in translation course. We would love for you and/or your students to participate! We're under construction until the beginning of the semester (Jan 20, 2009), but feel free to take a look at what we've created thus far! Take care!
Hi - thanks! I am from Connecticut, USA. We have students in lots of different areas of the US, but our vision is for it to expand into an international discussion so that students can learn from each other. Just so you know, we check all the educators' to be sure they are who they say they are, and students can not sign up without a class code from their educator. We also moderate the posts so that students can't say anything mean. We also do not allow the use of first or last names on the site. These are just the safety features. Let me know if you have any questions!
Hi Bronwyn - I've always loved that name! I wanted to let you know about my website SEEdebate.org. With some help with registration etc, your teachers shouldn't have too much problem using the site. We post news articles for students around the world to discuss online. Let me know if you are interested and have any questions! Meghan
