I teach both Technology and Social Studies. I will be starting my 30th year, but still love the challenge and the enjoyment of being a professional teacher. My wife is an English teacher who also been teaching the same amount of years.
I'm sure we could find a classroom for you to connect with. Let me know exactly what you have in mind. I work for a regional consortium of 65 public school districts. We have mainly connected classrooms via videoconference using H.323 protocol (Polycom or Tandberg), but we could post your request to our members and see if there are any takers. My direct email address is: firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks!
Good morning! GAVS uses Moodle for a math remediation resource for middle school. Otherwise GAVS contracts with D2L (:
Will look at Wiziq - think I may have already. Have you done any screencasting? GAVS uses Elluminate and some of us are playing with some of the virtual office spaces for our meetings. Not sure I totally "get" Second Life type virtual realities!
With your work in Technology at your Community School, I recommend you take a look at Wiziq's virtual classroom and authorstream's power point presentation platform. Both are web based platforms, have a bunch of features and free basic service.
Hi K.! Happy new year! thanks for your comment on the video I posted!
Let me tell you a bit about me. I am from Argentina, where I have carried out some research that showed a very small percent of secondary school teachers make actual use of the Internet in for their practices. I will be giving a talk next february to share ideas and resources with many colleagues who do not even know about web 2.0. I participate of classroom 2.0 but would like to start my own network so as to show my colleagues here in Argentina what one can do whith sites like NIng (and also as a personal challenge!) If you could please join me at
