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.


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.

Hi everyone. I am Guillermo P. Bautista from the Philippines. I am a math teacher and a blogger. My blog Mathematics and Multimedia is about the integration of technology in teaching mathematics. I have more than 40 GeoGebra tutorials there. I'm glad to be a member of Classroom 2.0.



Thank you for contributing great ideas in facilitating the learning of mathematics- seen your blog and it simply great.

Thank you very much Norbert.

Hello everyone.

 I'm a primary teacher from Bulgaria.  All Internet resources i like and  worksheets for children. Glad to be a member of the classroom with all of you!

Can you share your links to use for classroom instruction, your resources and worksheets that you use?
I'm new in the classroom and I would be very instructive to verify your methods with my education!
Thank you!

Hi My name is Theresa Rangel,
I am from Naugatuck Connecticut, but I teach in Danbury Connecticut. This is my fifth year of teaching and I am currently seeking my Masters in Teaching and Technology. I love reading,writing, art, and science. I can usually be found playing with my two kids ages 10 and 12 or running around for some school project. :o) I am currently teaching 3rd grade and before this year I taught first grade for the last 4 years. I love what I do and am always looking for ways to work smarter instead of harder. Time is precious!
