This is my very first participation in a web-based learning community. That's quite ironic since I have been studying those communities for a few years now as part of my doctoral dissertation work. I've seen the powerful benefits for students and teachers alike. Since I will now become a teacher-educator, I recognize the importance of gaining first-hand experience. I look forward to learning from practicing teachers who engage students in web-based learning. The more I learn from you, the more I can share with my undergraduate and graduate education majors. My goal is not to tell my students about web-based learning, rather to engage them in it as part of my coursework. If they engage in web-based learning themselves, then they're more likely to provide such experiences for their own students later on.
So that's my philosophy and my goal. Thank you in advance for all that you will teach me. Please know that you'll be contributing to the preparation of many future educators.

Just checking in. Hope things are going well. Settled in? Molding those young minds of mush into the future educators. I am heading to an afternoon workshop (outside of my contracted time and not getting paid) on technology for 21st century education.
Hope your summer was great. I am sure you were really busy getting ready for the upcoming semester. Things are hopping at the View. One of my worst nightmares came true in the High School. At least he isn't in my building. Keep in touch and great ASK7 response to Cara's picture prompt.
