My name is Hannah Johnson and I am an Algebra 1/2 teacher in Grand Island Nebraska. I am in my second year of teaching. I really like to work with troubled students who are in trouble or even classified as the "bad students" but I can find ways to connect to these students and help them see what they can really do with their education and they can be successful.

I am a Language Arts (English and reading) teacher in the second largest school district in IL. (Read--we are in significant debt, have had major reductions, took no salary increase, large classes, etc)
One of my students has given me an application for a grant through a parent's company --she says it is always granted--for technology to use in my classroom to enhance my teaching. I would like advice on what to ask for. I have purchased with my own money an Elmo document camera and a ceiling installed digital projector. The gifted dept. purchased a SMARTBoard for my classroom also since I teach gifted classes. We are supposed to get Clickrs soon. What should I be asking for?? the maximum purchase is $2500.

My name is Susan Campo and I am a high school Geography and Science teacher near Toronto, Canada. I have just set up my classes on gmail so that I can start using the calendar, Google docs and other apps with them. I am the only one at my school doing this and I am interested in finding out where to start and whether it is even worth the time. Any suggestions?
