"I try to share a new Web 2.0 Site/Resource on my blog every day. You can check it out here:
I just started a month ago and I feel I am sharing good information, but you know how it is…"
I know that this is an older post, but if you would still like some ideas, please feel free to check out my blog. I recently started blogging about the Web 2.0 tools that I have used, partly to share with others, but mainly to…"
"Hey Jeremy and Jeff, thanks for the comments. I appreciate that you want to share Learn it in 5 with colleagues; this is the number one goal for me -- to help teachers learn more about these powerful tools.
Jeff, I don't use TeacherTube,…"
Hello, I recently launched a new web site for teachers, http://learnitin5.com. It is a library of how-to videos on various Web 2.0 applications. In the next few months, I hope to add another 20-30 videos, and I'm looking for tips on what to put on the site. Please visit and comment either directly on http://learnitin5.com or here.

I am looking for tech-savvy teachers to share techniques at an upcoming conference. It's called Ohio Free-Tech 2010. Do you know of anyone who may be qualified? We are also still accepting registration forms from people who want to…"
"Hi All, have you seen Squeak.org? Another programming language that has been around for a while. Students create Etoys which can contain graphics, text, sound and music.
Thanks for sharing the others."
"Hi I am college student and we recently learned about web 2.0. We looked at a thing called voice thread, I dont know too much about it, but it could be something worth while to look at. Hope this helps or gives you a start."

"Hi Rita, thanks for the reply. I do not use ePals, only because I find that the registration process is cumbersome. I have used it in class for blogging in the past, but there are other education blogs that I prefer. I've never used the e-mail…"
Do you include ePals in the class? It's the largest K12 community of online learners, with 600K classrooms in 200 countries and territories.

"HI Nancy, like I said above I am currently studying to be a teacher and am trying to learn about some of the new technologies being brought into the classroom and how they are being used. Could you just explain what some of the technologies are that…"
Mark, what a great idea! For the technologically challenged, this will be a gold mine. I know people who regularly use web2.0 sites think they are really easy to use but for the rest of us, each new one is a challenge to navigate. I joined a new one this week and someone posted a comment on my page and it took me 3 days to figure out how to reply. I just watched a couple of your videos and you make it simple. I will be sharing your site with the rest of the teachers at my school. Thanks!
