I've worked in the NB public education system for over 20 years as a teacher, an evaluation expert, a curriculum developer and assistant director. Since 2001, I'm coordinating the development and delivery of online courses for francophone High schools. Am passionate about 21st century learning and effective IT integration and I value teamwork with colleagues and teachers in the field and significant strategic partnerships with other e-learning jurisdictions across Canada and abroad. Married for 28 years, father of 3, I enjoy golf, reading, hockey and relaxing at the beach (which NB is quite notorious for).

Hi Jacques -- I'd like to invite you to join a Classroom 2.0 group called Canadians Mashup. I'm trying to build a network of Canadian educators and bloggers. No discussions yet. I'm just starting out by trying to find where everyone lives and what they teach. If you're interested, please add me as a colleague as well.
If you add yourself to the map, please include a name or a photo of some sort. There seem to be a lot of unidentified people from unidentified places and the map is getting stuck on for some reason. The problem is that I can't tell from the members’ list which anonymous hits are real people and which were just false starts. The company does not differentiate members unless there is a picture or a name. Location only is not enough to help me know which entries are not real ones. THANKS!!!!
Is there an anglais version of your trilobite video?
The world really is a small village. Thank you for sharing the information about the language packs. That is amazing! The use of technology really helps us break down barriers and connect with people from across the world.
I am new to web 2.0 technology, but I am quickly gaining insight into the endless possibilities of this innovative technology. This year I created podcasts with my students and began to explore the use of blogging. Althought I was impressed with the insightfulness of my students responses in the blogs, I felt as though they were using it as a reflective journal rather than an interactive tool. I know this has a direct correlation to my instruction, so I will rethink that this year. Feel free to check out our work at http://radnortsd.schoolwires.com/59992620225443/site/default.asp
Hi Jacques! Welcome to classroom 2.0! I am a new member as well. I think it is great that you are passionate about learning and technology. This is a nice place to connect and share our experiences with others of a shared interest. See you around!
Thank you for replying so promptly and I just love your comments about the connectedness, exchange and sharing as our education will become so much richer by it. I am suffering from jet lag as we just flew back home from London via a stopover in Hong Kong and trying to catch up with everything. I am passionate about the emerging technologies as well and their effective integration into the curriculum. As it is fun, we very often forget that wonderful learning that is taking place naturally.
Hello Jacques and welcome here. I have also joined a lot of ning groups but this is the one I keep returning to all the time as it has a large membership and the discussions and forums keep on coming and are really pertinent to what I want to learn and use in my classroom.
