Hey Helen, How's it going?
I have changed my page a bit and put up some more videos.
Cheers,

Well as much as I love Hamilton, I had to take a teaching job in innner city Auckland when I first started. The kids are great and I really love working with them, the blogpage and associated work has really lit a fire with them. They dont have a particularly strong wordly view, so even a log onto the blog can produce a flurry of activity in an atlas to see exactly where some of the locations are... its been hugely beneficial to them, also a pretty big workload from myself but after teacing for 12 years its also motivated myself again after a couple of years of meandering. The amount of possibility from web 2.0 tools is really staggering...
Hamilton really is a neat place though!!!

Hey Helen-

Thanks for the complement regarding the photo. How are you? What’s your area of study? What brings you to Classroom 2.O?

About me! I’m fine, into instructional design, workshop facilitation and curricula development…looking at community informatics as a tool for better understanding communicative and open space technologies, which is my area of study.

What brings me to Classroom 2.0…a friend that suggested that I start my blog, network with like minded folks and contribute to the development of the site…I look forward in interacting with all of you and this experience…going in, seems life-long.

Hi Helen, thanks for the warm welcome. I've been researching (playing with) web2.0 apps for sometime now as part of my Ph.D. As a videographer and communications professor My Dissertation Project is creating digital learning objectives,and curriculum using Web 2.0 to empower the next generation. My focus is on empowering low income, inner city kids with the skills to survive and thrive a digital world.

Thanks for your comment Helen, just still playing around at the moment, but what a cool site. I ran the Da Vinci Centre at Wooranna Park for a while, I would have loved to have stayed there. They have redesigned the whole teaching and learning environment. I still embed the Reggio ideals into my teaching today! Say hi to Esme and Ray for me!

Thanks for the welcome Helen, looking forward to finding more great ICTs and luring some of our more reluctant teachers onto the technology -- so many great things to explore, I sometimes feel like a kid in a lolly shop.
Wow, the ultranet! Sounds like you have a wonderful job.

Hi Helen,
I really like your page - I am just starting out and experimenting with themes and stuff. I am an ICT facilitator based in Wellington NZ, although I taught for a while in Melbourne, I was the facilitator at a reggio amelia school in Dandenong, Wooranna Park primary School, you may have heard of it. Anyway, as I said just experimenting at the moment I'd love you to have a look at my page and make some suggestions. I specialise in working with students and teachers as creators of media. See ya. Gavin :)

Hello Helen,

So nice to get a warm welcome from you. Your job sounds very meaningful too. I did notice that you have skype. Let me invite you and please ping me when you are online. It would be nice to exchange ideas. ~Ana

Hi, yeahI have been having some fun playing around. (Note that I took some stuff from your page!) Perhaps you could help me with some ideas for setting my kids up with blogs. I know that this site is probably no good, but can you offer any suggestions??

Helen,
It works. I have added you as a friend and have started playing with the web2.0 tools that I can find. I am very excited about the prospects for my teaching and the engagement of my kids!!

Hi Helen,
Thanks for your help but I am stressing about not being able to do anything. I don't htink my page is working properly. I understand how everything should work, it just doesn't work. I cannot even sign out or change my profile photo. Is there a help desk?

Thanks, Helen! I'm very glad to be a part of this community. Actually, I never knew it existed until recently, and now I'm kicking myself for not connecting earlier. What a great find!

Anyway, I may call on your expertise sometime to guide me through the underbrush that is the Melbourne educational tech scene, etc. I love this city, but I know virtually nothing about what's going on out here with digital storytelling, for instance. Is it alright to consider you a comrade/resource in this regard?

Much respect,

Ryn

Thanks for your welcome Helen. Sounds like you have a very cool job. I'm keeping an eye on the Ultranet rollout (but never really know where we actually end up standing in all this as part of the Catholic system)...

Hi Helen. Thanks for the reply. I am interested in learning how often members of CR20 use the site; how long the site has been up and running; and why people decided to join CR20. Plus, any kind of subtle rules of behavior that the casual observer might miss. I would appreciate any insight that you could provide on these matters.
