Dear colleagues and friends,

I was just wondering if you had some questionnaire/checklist to obtain data on foreign language teachers' perceptions on the use of Web2.0 tools. I would like to collect data on this topic. The results will be shared here, of course.

Many thanks for your assistance and cooperation in advance.

Question (also tweeted): My kids just built web pages on photosynthesis. Any suggestions on how to get them to keep using them -- writing and answering comments, perhaps -- rather than having their page sit there like a digital poster, finished and static? Thanks for any ideas.

Hey I'm newish to Classroom 2.0, stumbled here accidentally.
I'm heavily involved in Web 2.0 technologies and their application in training. We have networks that are free-open membership and event specific social networking and wikis at my company... pros and cons of both types of networks. Nice to meet everyone here.

Does anyone know where the different video streams from the conference are? I would like to review a couple of the keynotes and the presentations.

I was at the Thursday morning workshop and found it wonderful. Before this I did not really see the point of a Twitter and wondered why anyone would use one, but with seeing it used as a way to really communicate with others that have the same interest in technology in the classroom I was sold. All I need to do now is start getting involved in this communication........Thanks

I was one of the (four?) science teachers from Wed's session 4 workshop. I teach 5th, 6th, and 8th grade at an independent girls' school in Philadelphia. Here's my class site -
One fellow science teacher from today was an old college buddy whom I hadn't seen in 10 years - small (though now better connected) world!

I am an Elementary School Principal with a strong commitment to working with parents and educators to connect with their children/students online. I facilitate the Coquitlam School District's One to One Wireless Writing project and regularly present to educators, parents, and students on Internet Safety and Parenting 21'st Century Learners.
I am really excited to expand my network and learning community with all of you.

I am a Education Specialist for the Department of Defense Schools in Georgia and Alabama - with focus on extending 21st Century teaching and learning in the "Schools for the Soldier's Child." Our plan is to build an online learning community of teacher leaders through the use of social networks. Because I am learning through the Classroom 2.0 network - I am positive this will work. We've created our own Ning - but I certainly want to point our teacher leaders to Classroom 2.0 as well! Any ideas on using social networking for widely disseminated professional development are welcome and appreciated!
