I have been teaching at and also running a Montessori classroom in North Carolina for the past 15 years. The school provides programs for infants through 8th grade.
My partner and I have recently formed a new corporation and intend to build a high school in the area which will twin with a school in South Africa. We are very interested in utilizing Web 2.0 in our classrooms.

Happy New Year! I was wondering if you or your students would be interested in participating in a nationwide SAT Vocab Video Contest @ MIT university. If not, perhaps you have some educator contacts you could direct me to. We'd really like to get more students involved from NC!
You can view contest details at BrainyFlix.com Please let me know. Thanks!
I work three days a week as a school psychologist. Although I've worked in regular school settings for most of my career- elementary, middle, and high school, right now, I work at a program for students with multiple special needs. We use technology to support learning and communication.
We just moved to a new school- this week, and we have all sorts of new technology. We will be using Moodle soon.
We have quite a few students who have autism at our school, and we are doing a lot with digital photography and video to create social stories and so forth.
I'm using a 19 x 19 NextWindow touch screen monitor to assist with assessment and try out little applications, widgets, and games that I make.
Thanks for your message. Are you currently a practicing school psychologist? Are you using this technology now in some way? I am working on establishing a high school utilizing this Web 2.0 and a social networking platform. It's been quite a learning curve for me so far!
