Hello all! My name is Kate Ivers and I am a Business and Marketing Ed. instructor in rural Minnesota. I am a first year teacher (having just graduated from the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities with an M.Ed. in the spring) and am currently teaching keyboarding and computer applications for grades 4-9. The content isn't the most challenging for me to teach so I'm constantly looking for way to incorporate technology into my lessons to keep both myself and my students interested in what we are learning.
Take a look at a few things: Global Virtual Classroom and Global Dreamers and Cyberteen.
GVC might take more of you time than you are able to allow.
Global Dreamers lets you pick and choose when you wish to participate.
Cyberteen will give your older students an opportunity to write about events and things important in you community. Take a look at the 'created by hand' project. I'll bet there are plenty of things in Minnesota that ARE made by hand.
My name is Geetanjali Shrivastava and I am a French teacher at the Alliance Francaise de Poona (India). I have been teaching since 5 years and have always enjoyed using Web 2.0 tools as a part of my class.
I am also working with a start-up that is developing a networking tool for academicians. Bibkosh, is a knowledge networking application that allows users to upload information the their Personal Knowledge Vault and share it with their peer group. Users can also publish their knowledge and showcase it to the world through their Knowledge Profile, which can then serve as a business card on the web.
I am looking forward to gaining insights into teaching and new teaching tools through Classroom 2.0
If you have any questions or would like to get in touch with me for collaborations, do contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org My twitter handle is plaingeets
Thanks for your reply. If you are teaching online, you might find bibkosh a useful platform to upload and share your documents. Since the application is currently in beta phase, there are still some bugs, but they will all be fixed by the end of the year.
Do sign up and use it. If you have any questions/suggestions, you can always write to me at email@example.com

Hi - I'm an educational manager in a Danish school. I did a Master of IT and my master thesis was about "web 2.0 in formal learning", which is my special area of interest. - And I'm looking for som great examples of using web 2.0 media in a formal learning context and most interesting: how it contributed to the pedagogic practise and learning.
My name is Jonathan and I live in the Witch City(Salem, MA). I've been teaching for 18 years in elementary. Six of those years were as an Instructional Technology Specialist. Unfortunately due to budget constraints technology jobs were the first eliminated so now I am in a regular ed classroom. Also, I am currently enrolled in a CAGS program for educational leadership. One day I hope to be an elementary school principal.
My action research paper my CAGS is on Using Web 2.0 tools to help students become better writers. I hope that through this website I will be able to find a lot of research/articles about the use and effectiveness of Web 2.0 tools in literacy.
