No problem -- I'll pass the instructions along now and you can try them when you have time.
1) on the Mainpage in Classroom 2.0, click the More tab and select Groups. If you don't see the map/flag of Canada, type 'Canadians Mashup' into the Search Groups box and then click the box on the left.
2) When you get to the Group page, under the tabs on the right you'll see a GREEN plus sign (Join this group). Click there and that should do it. When you go back to your personal page the logo should be in your group list.
3) Using the Comment Wall floods everyone's email boxes, so we're trying to use the Discussion Forums instead. Please find the "Welcome" discussion and introduce yourself to other members there. The map does work if you're in Internet Explorer.
Let me know if you have any problems & welcome!
HI Diana -- I read with interest your contributions to Steve's Future of Education forum. I'm interested to find that your district is way more conservative than mine in what it allows access to. We're pretty wide open with internet access (except our school which is so slow we can't get online much of the time) but we have severly restricted downloading policies. I'm feeling fortunate now reading about your daily struggle.
Are you interested in joining a Canadians group in Classroom 2l0. If yes, I'll send you the how to details. -SueH
