My name is Leslie and I am a teacher-librarian for a K-8 catholic school in Los Angeles, CA. I have officially wet my feet with all things Web 2.0 and am ready to dive in head first! Still being at the bottom of the learning curve, I know just enough to know I want to know more. I'm hoping this is the place to do it and hopefully to take a few of my fellow teachers with me. I would like to know how school libraries are using Web 2.0 tools and how classrooms are also so that I can collaborate with colleagues. I am stoked and ready to get started!

Hey Hey. My name is Mike Hacker, just joined 2.0 today - very much looking forward to being a part of future conversations. I work with an Architectural firm which focuses on K12 educational spaces. I believe very strongly that the physical environment plays a major roll in the learning process and hope to heighten my understanding of the challenges faced with learning in the connected generation.
Hi Mike,

Wow, sounds you like have a fascinating job. It's got to be pretty amazing to see something go from an abstraction to a tangible product that will likely be in service for decades.

My name is Lucas Fox, and I'm a middle school science teacher in Kingston, New York. I am also a Graduate student at SUNY New Paltz getting my M.S. Ed. with a concentration in Biology. Wow that is a lot to say, and I have A LOT MORE to get through at least in this introduction.

I was turned onto this site by my research advisor Tom Meyer. Currently I am working on my research paper for my Graduate degree. Without getting into to many details here, it's about bringing and using blogs into classrooms. Tom said that there are many here can get me pointed into the right direction on some of my ideas with my paper. But as I will save most of that for other posts.

I'm looking forward to reading what you all have to say and reading some of your ideas.

Hi Konrad,
What a great blog you have going there! I have emailed the link to all my classmates. We are in the first semester of our teaching credential and we are also taking a technology integration class. Your blog will be very helpful!

Hi My name is Sue Palmer and I teach social studies in western New York. I am a gen ed teacher but I am finishing up the last class for my cert in special ed as well. I love teaching inclusion, and have just started a website,, to enourage collaboration in sharing lesson and review materials. To help my students pass the regents exams in history, I have created a series of video review podcasts, or "masterycasts" to help kids with these subjects. The website is designed to house these for use by the world. I am looking forward to the opportunity to collaborate with other teachers who have a similar vision. I believe we need to teach with tools that today's students enjoy. We need to leave our comfort zones and enter their world. I am beginning to do this and is my path. I hope you will join me. My students enjoy my class, are learning, and as a result feel much more confident and better about themselves. I know some of us hate to admit it, but it works!
