With your interest in Ed Tech integration, I recommend you take a look at Wiziq's virtual classroom and authorstream's power point presentation platform. Both are web based platforms, have a bunch of features and free basic service.
So glad to have you as part of our Elementary Reading Teachers' Group here on Classroom 2.0. We have much to learn from each other and what a great way to develop a "PLN" (personal learning network).
Hope to hear from you in our discussions!
Hi Meghan - my welcome from Germany!
My focus is on Web 2.0 apps in the classroom. Feel free to check some of my sites.
Additonally, I ´ve created the biggest group on CR 2.0 about digital teaching methods like blogging... called DigiSkills with now 448 members.
Would love if you decide to join too.
