Hi, I'm Sherita from Oxford, Alabama where I currently teach Computer Applications, Computer Science, and Math. I am also the unofficial tech person in our Freshman Academy, and I collaborate with other teachers on how to integrate technology in their curriculum.
My biggest interest right now is project-based learning and collaboration. I'm looking for project ideas and teachers who are interested in collaborating via blogging, Google Docs, and/or video.
I am a teacher from Moscow. I have been teaching my students English for about 5 years now. They are students with special needs, some of them are quite good at IT and lots of other subjects. Though they mostly have individual online lessons, we have already made some group projects and participated in several events and contests. We have already tried our school blogs and forums too.
I think it would be fun for my students to take part in projects together with kids from other countries.
As for me, I am always happy to share my ideas with partners and to learn from them.
With best wishes,
My name is Mary and I'm a high school English teacher. I LOVE learning about new technology others are using in the classroom and and love to share what I am using. I am going to be teaching the novel, The Perks of Being a Wallflower, in May. I would like to collaborate with another English teacher outside of the state of Illinois. If anyone is interested, please contact me.
Hello I am a high school Spanish teacher and would like to find other classes to communicate in Spanish with my students. If you also teach Spanish, our classes could communicate in Spanish to improve their Spanish skills. If you teach in a Spanish country and are looking for someone to practice English with your students, we could take turns writing in English one week and Spanish the next week or switch languages with each new topic.
My students are currently working on a VoiceThread to share and I'm experimenting with blogging with my Spanish 5 class every Tuesday. Some other web2.0 tools I use in class are GoogleVoice, screencasting (for feedback on compositions and for tutorials and review videos of grammar for the students), Animoto, Glogster (though not one of my favorites), ShowBeyond, and Storybird.
I look forward to finding other educators that want to stress inter-class communicative activities with their students.
I am interested in online collaboration and in alternative ways for teachers to become certified.
I hope to have the opportunity to interact with the many experts in this forum.
And have fun too:)
Hi, my name is Carol Sammon
I would like, if possible for my reading workshop students to collaborate with another reading group. I would appreciate any pros, cons, ups and downs on this endeavor.
Im brand spankin new to this so please excuse me if I am doing something incorrectly. I am a year 6 teacher in Australia and would love to use this site to learn from others as well as hook up with schools globally to do some fantastic things. I am particularly interested in connecting the arts with technology.
Looking foward to exploring the world with you all.
