thank you Andrew for your welcoming comment. It would be nice to consider myself technology literate however with how fast applications are coming online with Web2.0 there is alot to get my head around. Especially with thinking how to use this in the secondary classroom to engage students in some deep and mearningful learning. I am currently studying to become a secondary teacher. My hats off to those of you are already teaching and working to use technology in your lessons.
Hi Andrew. I was wondering if you have students or educator friends who would be interested in participating in a nationwide SAT Vocab Video Contest @ MIT university. You can view contest details at BrainyFlix.com Please let me know. Thanks!
If the work can be done remotely, and by a Canadian, I would be interested in hearing more about your project. I am an Educator in the TDSB, specializing in science and technology. I integrate several different social media tools into my curriculum.
Please feel free to contact me through my page if you think I would be suitable.
Hi Andrew, I am interested in doing some work on 2.0 tools. I am in Chicago and I work in an elementary school that has experienced a technology explosion in the past year. I really enjoy being a pioneer and would love to help out.
Hi Andrew! I checked out your living textbook and I love it. It is exactly what students need today! I agree completely that you can't know what is going to be in it until the issues and topics develop! If you get a chance, check out my site at SEEdebate.org - it is a current events discussion website that gets students talking about international news. It seems that our ideas compliment each other!
It is exciting, I teach in a special ed program for gifted students and have many of them for 4-5 years in a row while they are in elementary schools. I usually don't hear a word when they go to middle school but then they seek me out in high school or college. I've even heard from some of my "old" kids, like Julie, who are close to 30.
I think it is a great idea to offer it. So many people can't afford to go to MACUL this year as districts have cur back on funding!
I am planning on bringing my OLPC and seeing if there is anyone else out there with one. would love to try out the Mess network!
I won one of the Michigan Champions Grants so I will be staying at the Radison Thursday night with fellow teachers. Is there are pre-conference evening planned this year? That might be a great place for people to meet.
In response to your comment on my video:
I just uploaded an audio podcast to my classroom 2.0 blog here: http://www.classroom20.com/profiles/blog/show?id=649749%3ABlogPost%3A67290
Let me know if something like that would be appropriate for a guest blog on your classroom20blog-
