Hi. My name is Jennifer Thoman. I teach high school math at Northern Lebanon High School in Pennsylvania. I have a wide variety of classes ranging from Technical Algebra 1 to AP Calculus. I'm curious about what I'll be able to learn from this website! Hoping to incorporate more technology into my classroom.
I have co-taught Agebra and I have always approached the subject as a foreign language. So many times I have seen students fail because they simply don't understand the language of Algebra. I make them READ the book.
My name is Anne and I assist the Learning and Technology Coordinator here at our rural high school in south central Pennsylvania. We are always on the lookout for new technologies for the classroom and also to help our teachers become little more tech savvy! I am looking forward to learning and sharing here at Classroom 2.0.
The best thing I have discovered is a web site www.delicious.com it is a place that you can save all your book marks from the websites you visit. Then you tag the site so that you can find it later. The best thing about it is that you can network with other people looking at the same subjects (Tags) that you are.
For instance I was looking for plans for a deck to build. Easy with delicious.
Hi or Merhaba
My name is Sevil. I'm from Turkey. I'm a preschool teacher in istanbul. I work with 4 year olds. I'm using tecnology in my classmaking some presantations and I wonder what can also do. Also I have a new class blog. It is Turkish but you can watch our videos and can get an idea about what we do here.
Hi...My name is Matt Offenbecker. I am located in Bay City, Michigan, USA, and I currently teach technology in a high school of about 1400. One of my collegues introduced me to this website and I thought it would be a great place to get ideas and I also enjoy contributing to the advancement of technology.
I'm a huge Detroit Tigers fan...Spring Training is one of my favorite times of the year. My fingers are crossed and I'm hoping for a good season. Beyond that, I enjoy lazy man sports such as bowling, golf, and downhill skiing (I have to preface skiing with "downhill" in order for it to qualify as a lazy man sport. Cross country skiing is certainly not for the lazy!)
My wife and I have two great kids that refuse to sleep at night, but are wonderful anyhow! Our son is three and half. Just recently, he made friends with the potty, so we're thrilled about that. Our daughter is almost one and is just starting to walk. Dangerous.
Been there done that with the kids. I use to say that it's the best time when they are that little. But, I am enjoying my children as they come of their own. One is going to go to high school next year and the other starts junior high.
I am a big Eagle's fan. My son, Ben, is a Steeler's fan. It's okay NFC vs. AFC. It would be tough if they were both in the superbowl together. But I enjoy the Steelers too.
Do you teach storybooking with Movie Maker?
I have been a member of Classroom 2.0 for the past year but have not been an active participant until this post. I receive many emails about the live events which I would like to experience one of these days. I live in Central Pennsylvania and teach first grade in a wonderful rural community. I began challenging myself about 2 years ago to integrate more technology into my classroom and was thrilled when I was one of five teachers selected to receive a SMARTboard for this school year. I look forward to learning more from members here as I continue my learning journey with technology.
So much technology so little time. Does the IU Intermediate Unit in your area offer courses? If so then you should check and see if they are offering one on Smartboards. I learned a ton of things at my IU.
Greetings from the Poconos! I am a 7th grade reading specialist in northeastern PA. I am currently enrolled in my 8th course for Educational Media at Wilkes University. Prior to this course, I had never even heard of Ning; or if I did, I didn't know what it was!
