Hi everybody, I am Pedro from Chile. English Teacher as a second language. Finishing the school year and preparing myself for summer holidays. I´ll be back on March to start the school year at the Adventist school in Rancagua. I´m looking forward to hear from you. Like to practice my english live.

This year we celebrated 200 years as an independent country and we started on February with a big Earthquake, then On September we celebrated the Independence day. On August fifth we had the 33 miners traped in Copiapó. Finally at the end of November we had a bus accident that left several people dead.

I teach English from 5th to 8th grade.

My best regards

Pedro

Hi Pedro,

You've certainly had a very eventful year in Chile!  I can tell you that the whole world held its breath as the work proceeded to rescue the miners in Copiapó.

 

Your 7th and 8th graders might enjoy writing about Chile for Cyberteen.  Most of the participation comes from teachers just like you who teach English as a second language.

Hello Pedro from Chile.

That's quiet a plate full to digest. I pray your experience in America brings you happiness and a rewarding education. Best, Doug Wallace 

Hi Everyone,

My name is Amy Hollinger and I have been in the education world for about 16 years working as a classroom facilitator, school based administrator, high school coach, professional development facilitator or whatever other hat I was asked to wear. The last ten years I was at a k-12 developmental research school attached to the University of Florida. My passions include equity issues in education, project based learning and multi age environments. This year I am on a leave of absence from UF and working with a small 4th-12th grade school on the panhandle of Florida in it's second year with students. The emphasis here is on 21st century learning and students are given the freedom of a total open access environment. I am writing my dissertation focusing on a virtual model of PBL that can be transferred into any type of school. Check out this quick video about the school if you want to know more about what this year in my life is like:

Very excited to be connecting to the classroom 2.0 community!

Hi All,

Here is Gbenga from Lagos Nigeria.

Just joined the network today and showing myself around. :) 

I am a social medial consultant, and opened to collaboration. 

Greetings,

I am from the Cape Verde Islands in West Africa. I came to the US in pursuit of a higher education, given that, when I completed high school in 1990, there wasn’t a single university or community college in Cape Verde.

I completed my BS, MS, and PhD in Electrical Engineering at Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University (FAMU) in Tallahassee, Florida.

Although my background is engineering, I have a zeal for teaching. I am currently an Assistant Professor in the Department of Electronic Engineering Technology at FAMU.

One of my research interests therefore is in the area of education. I am currently working on a research project intended to provide online educational assistance (Online Tutoring) to students enrolled in STEM courses throughout the FAMU campus.

 

Hello, everyone.

 

I'm Katerina, I live in Athens, Greece, and I'm studying English at our National and Kapodistrian University. I'm interested in knowing more about educational technology, expanding my Personal Learning Network and keeping up with the updates in the educational field, in general.

 

Nice to meet all of you!

 

 

I'm Jeff Walsdorf. I've been teaching for twenty years, all of it in Middle School. Currently I teach 6th grade in Houston TX. I'm looking to collaborate with other Language Arts teachers and just teachers in general.

Jeff,

You might want to contact Principal NIcole Smith at the Llano Junior High School in Llano, TX. She is an innovative leader and the feedback I've gotten is very positive. Good luck with your efforts. Best, Doug Wallace

Hi Jeff,

Nice to meet you and hope to hear from you soon.

Hello!  I am currently pursuing a Doctor of Education in Higher Ed and adult learning through Walden University, and am teaching part time at CA State University, Fullerton in the Kinesiology dept.  I am looking for new ways to get the students active in the courses I teach by introducing them to the resources they have at their fingertips online.  Recently, I began a facebook page for a course with positive feedback from the students, but I want to do more.  If anyone is also in the Higher Ed realm and would like to share some ideas I would be appreciative and excited to collaborate.
My name is Tom Stanley and I am from Las Vegas, Nevada. I am currently an instructor at the Advanced Technologies Academy and have helped build an on online school in Las Vegas, Nevada. My passion is using technology to help improve th learning of my students in a project-based learning environment. What I discovered while teaching and being an online instructional designer is that you can use project-based learning in the online and blended learning envvironments. I have helped build professional development for online teacherrs/students, worked with teachers to building online classes that are interactive and project oriented, and done multiple online/realtime activities using synchronous and asynchronous tools in an online and real time environment.  I am currently still teaching and am building a company to work with schools/ groups to create effective PBL projects that are local, state, national and international in scope.
