Hi Everyone: My name is Douglas W. Wallace and I live in California. In 2009 I published a memoir titled "Everything Will Be All Right." I wrote it primarly for my children, not for recognition, or monetary reward. It is a true story of my childhood struggles to remain in school as a victim of generational poverty. I had no idea that my story would attract the attention of educators from Texas to New Jersey and from Tennessee to California. It has been such a reward to know that my story of growing up in the rural south in the 1960's is helping children in poverty today. If you are an educator with a large number of impoverished students, my book is available free for classroom and library use. Donating my book is my way of paying it forward for the blessing of making it out of poverty. Today, I am a retired attorney and active investor. Feel free to contact me on 2.0 for any questions.
Wallace, such a moving testimony- thank you for sharing, it is gratifying that your has changed humanity.
Norbert, thank you for your kind words. That's the kind of reward money can't buy. Have a great day. Best, Doug

My name is Chris and I'm a high school math teacher in Orlando, FL, at a brand-new K-12 charter school.  The school has plans of becoming a technology-rich, 1:1 school in the near future.  I am in my 13th year as a math teacher; the past three years were spent teaching exclusively online for Connections Academy, but I returned to a brick-and-mortar classroom this year.  I'm trying to bring technology into my room as much as possible, given my limited resources (read: none), so here's hoping I can get some ideas.

Chris,

Thank you for writing. My focus is on the sociology of human behavior, particularly the culture of poverty and the communication gap between the various social economic classes. I'm certain there are organizations out there that can and will help you, particularly those foundations involved in providing technology to schools. I'm sorry I don't have any references for you. I do wish you the very best in finding a solution. Don't give up. There are a lot of volunteers willing to help. It's just a matter of matching up with the right foundation. Good luck. Best, Doug

Hi! My name is Elizabeth and I am from Australia! Excited to be here!
I trained originally in Film and Television production, before moving into media education. I am now involved at looking at New Media in the media education classroom and have been really enjoying the research process. I also have two young children at home, and I document their own media habits in my blog.

Welcome Elizabeth!
