Hello! I'm Eileen Doherty and I'm currently a 5th grade teacher in Fort Wayne, IN. I'm hoping to get some good ideas for using technology this year in my classroom. I already found some cool ideas that I'm going to try out.
I'm the Technology Integration Specialist at a Pre-K to 5 school in Copperas Cove, TX. Essentially, in my position, I teach teachers about technology, and how to integrate it into the curriculum. It's a fun, interesting job and never boring. This is the second year for this position in our district, and we are finding out that we are either not as advanced or more advanced than a lot of districts in Texas, so I feel fortunate to be in the middle, and not on either end.
I am currently doing presentations to our teachers on Virtual Field Trips, and on Thinkfinity (I'm the district field trainer), and feel very blessed to be doing all I can to teach others how to implement technology into the classroom.
My goals this year are to do many more podcasts with my students, and to use Word Thread in some of my podcasting, to show my students how big (and small) the world really is.
Hello everyone. I'm an Instructional Technology Consultant for Berrien RESA in southwest Michigan. I coordinate H323 videoconferencing for our schools. We use VC to connect to content providers and other classrooms to enhance learning. We use Web 2.0 tools to support our collaborative projects.

I am a Barber Instructor and a Cosmetology Instructor in Columbus, GA. I have been trying to use social networking to communicate with my students and their families. I have been using multiply, myspace, facebook and twitter for about 3 years now with some success. I am afraid that I am "trail blazing in the dark" with my limited computer knowledge. I have been posting my powerpoint presentations to the blog and I post pictures of my students work. I have been using youtube with some success, although my students now want to create educational/demonstration videos. I have purchased a nice cam and now I am a bit overwhelmed, as I do not know how to edit these videos.
I have two blogs that I would love some feedback on from this group. I want to learn how to create a web class that is interactive. Please help me.
I am Tracy from New Jersey - I am an English Supervisor and I also teach one class, but I have been in my district for 13 years. I am looking for ways to add 2.0 technology to our department and within the classroom, but I am also looking for ways to get our Superintendent on board, along with our Tech team. It has been difficult. I created a Ning for our English department and I am excited to see how that works - I am open to ideas and suggestions and I look forward to learning how to integrate technology into what we do daily.
Hello all. Tyler Livingston from St. Paul, MN here. I am a 7th/8th grade Langauge Arts teacher at a year-round IBMYP school. I'll be starting my eleventh year teaching, but this will be my first year taking a huge dive into Web 2.0, using a smartboard, edublog, etc. I'm looking forward to the new challenge, and I think my kids will really get a kick out of it all.
Hi, I'm Christina Huff. I am currently working on my master's degree in secondary education and biology. I have lived in Alabama for about 7 years with plans to move where ever I can find a teaching job after I graduate.
In a previous life I was an actuary, so the maths came fairly easily to me.
I've enjoyed my year, and my son has certainly benefited, but I have missed teaching. I shall be looking for a part-time teaching job in September, so that I can continue making my software and giving time to my son as he settles in year 1.
I am always looking for new ideas for maths resources, so please let me know if anything comes to mind.
