Shalom from Israel!
I am glad to be here. I am new to the world of blogging and the other web 2.0 tools. However, with much help from an online course i have just finished with Educar (, I have managed to learn quite a lot. Still, there'm much to be learnt, and I am interested in blogging both in English and Spanish (I teach both in "my" Israeli school - I've been teaching there for so many years that I nearly feel it belongs to me)
This coming school year I would very much like to integrate blogging in at least one of the classes I will be teaching (I mean one in English as a Foreign language and one in Spanish as a Foreign language)
I hope joining this group will help me (I am pretty sure it will)
Well, my first attempt at a blog in English is EFL Yud Kugel
For Spanish I will mention the one I want to use with teachers of Spanish as a Foreign Language in the israeli school system (we work a lot together): ELEIsrael
I certainly welcome comments, suggestions, etc.
HI! I'm Liz Thackray and I work for the Open University in the UK. Looking forward to meeting people and learning lots
G'day gang :-)
My name is James Picton (aka 'Jimbo'), I'm an Australian pre-service primary / elementary teacher and I'm a bit of a nerd (or so I'm regularly told). I'm interested in ICT, multimedia, traditional & digital art and its application within a 21st century learning context. By the way, ICT is Aussie-talk for 'Information and Communication Technologies' (basically that's just a fancy term for technology and learning networks).

I have a Bachelor of Multimedia and worked within an instructional design / multimedia environment for a number of years before moving across into teaching. I'm looking forward to dragging Aussie schools kicking and screaming into the 21st Century with flexible learning, instructional design, Problem Based Learning, animation, web quests and positive learner engagement.

Great site, good to see other forward thinking educators!

Hi all! I'm Annie Gentithes from Chicago, IL. I teach fifth grade in Winnetka, IL and am excited about connecting and sharing!
Hi Annie :-)
I'm Jimbo (James Picton) from Australia. I'm a pre-service primary / elementary teacher and am looking forward to doing likewise.

Welcome Annie.
Hi all. I'm Mark Clive, a Senior Lecturer at the University of Texas, Arlington, where I teach 2D and 3D animation, motion graphics, and digital design. I'm always looking for ways to use technology to enhance learning. I look forward to being in this group.
Hi Mark. At you can view a flash presentation created for me by an intern from Hong Kong Baptist University who worked in my Chicago office this summer.

I think this illustrates a way students might use technology to help social benefit organizations. Hope to meet you in some of these forums.
Hi, my name is Katie and I am a new connect/technology teacher at the middle school level in the United States. I am obviously new to Classroom 2.0 and trying to figure everything out in order to get some cool projects ready to go for when school starts back up. I am anxious to learn my way around Classroom 2.0 and collaborate to get some great ideas!
Hello all. . .

I am new to this forum, and it will take some time for me to get everything figured out. My name is Marnie and I teach 5th grade math and science in a small suburb of Denver, Colorado, USA. I have been teaching for 21 years (sheesh!! that makes me pretty old, I guess), and while I spend the school year working very hard to make my classroom exciting and engaging for students, I spend the summer just having fun. Since I am still in summer mode right now, my focus is whitewater kayaking and motorcycling. I just got back from my first motorcycle tour and had an absolute blast camping, fishing, and riding some exhilarating mountain passes on my SV650. My focus this upcoming schoolyear will be to find ways to integrate technology into my classroom. . .not ME using it, but finding ways to have my students use technology to enhance their learning of math and science concepts, and to be effective members of today's technological society. In addition, I hope to continue to learn and improve my Spanish so that I can communicate effectively with my Spanish-speaking families. I look forward to hearing what you have all been doing in your classrooms, and hope that you can give me ideas to use in my own classroom.

For those of you on summer breaok. . .enjoy your last few weeks of vacation!
