Are There Other Elementary Teachers Here?

I'm looking for other Elementary school classroom teachers who use or would like to use Web 2.0 applications in their classrooms. Maybe we can hook up, make each other "friends" and have more focused discussions about our specialized interests and concerns.

I'd love to do this...I'm doing a lot of podcasting, the writing/blogging could be more concentrated so I'd love input there. Here is the blog for my class: If your class blog isn't blocked, I'd love to share. I have my kids read other class blogs for SSR.

I am currently a Fifth Grade Teacher and I was inducted as an 2007 Apple Distinguished Educator. I would love to share ideas with you. Here is my website.

Hi, I teach elementary 4-6 grades in Israel. Unfortunately many of the new web20 tools are quite inaccessible to my students simply because of the language barrier. While they may be able to make their way round the User Interface, often the tools do not support input of Hebrew text. One tool I am currently trying out is VoiceThread you can see an example where a couple of my students are communicating with a young American girl here: my original idea for that thread was a place for kids to learn, practice and communicate in a foreign language.

This sounds super! In our class, fifth grade inclusion, we're blogging, podcasting, creating websites, etc. A lot of our curriculum depends on technology to complete our lessons.

Our goal next year is to start collaborating with other schools via skype, blogging, and e-pals.

I teach sixth grade in Massachusetts and do quite a bit of podcasting this year as part of a Youth Radio network that I started with some other folks.

We may look to expand next year, so maybe your new group is a good place to send out some feelers.

Hi Kevin,
I'd like to invite you to join the new Elementary School 2.0 Group. Just click on Groups at the top of the page. We're easy to find, although groups are really starting up quickly.

Hi - we would love to hook up - I am probably cross-posting here, but we are a tiny two class school in south west England. My class is whole KS2 which means a mix of children aged 7-11. We are looking to link up with either a class of around 30 students or another teeny school (which I suspect is unlikely). We have never 'blogged' before but are hoping to start something by september. The ideal would be to link up for a collaboration of some sort if anyone is interested. I had an idea for an Art link (study each others recommended local artists - see my thread on
but really we are pretty much up for anything. We are limited by resources though because of our size - we have whiteboards and use powerpoint a lot, but I see blogging as the next step to contact other classes internationally as email is not ideal and discouraged for the younger children by our governors but blogging is seen as safer to oversee / moderate - if I understand it right. Would appreciate being pointed in the right direction by the wise people here. Jo

Just joined the Elementary School 2.0 group. It is very helpful to share with others at the elementary level. Often 2.0 conversations lean toward middle/high school kids. The younger ones need to resources and experience too.

I teach 3rd/4th and am also now the site tech integration mentor. I'm trying to learn as much as I can. Starting a class blog and wiki this fall and am looking into resources like Voicethread for digital story telling (Used Photostory in the past).
