I teach Social Studies at a relatively high-needs school in LIC, New York. Although I do not currently teach computer technology, I am interested in doing so...at least integrating with Social Studies. I'm also interested in the bigger picture, of getting kids to collaborate and communicate via web 2.0 tech. Interested in getting in contact with similarly-minded people! wolffjosh (at) yahoo (dot) com

Hi Josh. I was wondering if you and 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. You can view contest details at BrainyFlix.com Please let me know. Thanks!
Hi Josh, middle schoolers huh? Tell me then, it seems your class is a catch all for students who've been suspended from their own schools? Are you teaching ISS? (In school suspension?) One of the MS I work with has an ISS in the same home school. Are there units that you teach continuously or is there a NYC curriculum that you follow? I attended PS 11 for a while myself so I'm very familiar with the area, but that was a long time ago....
Hi Josh...I am also interested in integrating tech into teaching. I work as a school librarian and collaborate with classroom teachers. Getting kids to connect via w2.0 is also a goal of mine. What grade levels do you teach? What are some of your curriculum strands? I can ask around my teachers and see who wants to connect. - L
