Karim= thanks for inviting me to your wikispace. i hope you mange to visit mine- i am seeing you went some step a head and even incorporated a logo-
Hi Norbert, yes, I have visited your wiki - good effort! No extra effort needed to replace the logo - it's in the wikispaces settings.

Hi everyone!

I'm caroll, English teacher in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic. About me, I can say that I love languages and I'm always trying to learn something new. I'm new in this kind of things. last year, I participated in pbworkscamp2010, it was a great experience for me; there, I learnt a lot things about using wikis and how to use technology in my English classes. So I hope to learn interesting things here, too.

Hello! I am Colleen Priester, 4th grade teacher w/MAEd in Instructional Technology from Jacksonville, NC. Sadly, I am not really using my skills and experience in Instructional Technology at my current school because the technology in our schools is limited to desktop computers. I am unable to write grants in order to get a better variety of technology materials (gov't policies), so I am starting out this year trying to find inexpensive "gadgets" and ways to integrate technology with just our computers.

I'd love to hear ideas and suggestions :) Thanks!

Hi everyone,

 

I am Graeme Smith, a multimedia lecturer in Fife Scotland. I have been a member of this site for a good while now but have been a bit of a silent member which I hope to change over the coming months.

 

I teach in further education covering beginner to BSc (Hons) level, so quite a diverse range. Last year I completed a teaching qualification. It was quite intense but all said and done I had to choose a group of learners, discuss and evaluate how I teach then reference it to literature so that I could prove that someone says I'm doing it the right way... the truth be told, I don't teach like that at all and I have strong views that in many cases that i shouldn't be expected to teach the way it says in a book or the way they did 60 to 100 years ago,

 

I use web 2.0 daily in class and if I'm showed a way to do something I'll try and find a different/better way (I suppose it has a hint of the Edupunk although this is a term I am not keen on), also I'm always willing to listen to my students and although I might be a subject expert, I certainly don't claim to know it all.

 

So... with all that in mind... I am starting a PhD in September looking at this. As I said, I've been a silent member for a while (over a year I believe), I visit regularly and have read so many interesting discussions and have gained so many ideas on innovative ways to do things in the classroom. I'm hoping that, in fact, I'm sure that during my research I will be able to use this site and The Future of Education to generate discussions of my own or get very honest feedback and/or thoughts on ideas I might have.

 

Sorry for the seriously long-winded introduction but there you go, so now it's time to see what groups are of interest to me and try to use this site to its potential.

Nice connecting with you in this forum. Web 2.0 is powerful,Google app provides free applications for teachers and i have used a number them.Which web 2.0 tools were you using? Which university is offering you the phd- i would be interested too- I am an alumni of Dundee masters in medical education 2000.

Hi Everyone!  I just joined your group as a result of an online 2.0 class I have been taking Fall 2010 thru Jan 2011.  I am a Technology Specialist at a school here in Albany, Georgia.  I was "out of education" for about 8 years to stay home with three little boys. They are all now in school where I work.  This is my first year back so I am soaking up all the latest Tech Tools, Techniques, and Tips from other Educators and Innovators!
Karen, i am impressed that it was should happen, caring for your children for eight years, great sacrifice. You will definitely see your fruits. Next, welcome. You catch up. This a great forum.

Hello!

I taught in a traditional high school English classroom for about four years, and now I currently work as an English Expert for the first cyber high school here in Michigan. When I taught in the traditional classroom all my students had been assigned personal Macbooks, so I have a ton of experience with all the Mac applications and multimedia composition. I'm currently pursuing my Master's in Writing. 

 

I'm currently reading What Technology Wants by Kevin Kelly, it's a very interesting read so far! 

 

Hi Grace Welcome to classroom2.0 There are many resources shared here, discussions in progress and we hope that you will share your work with us. I teach accounting to a blended class - a mix of virtual and face to face students so I am really interested in your wrok in the new cyber school. All the best for 2011.
