About Me
This year, I'll begin a new position as the Educational Technology Specialist for an elementary school district. I'm a former technology coordinator for a large parochial school in the western suburbs of Chicago. I've also been a classroom teacher. I'm a wife and a mother of three wonderful teenagers.

Social networking and teachers

Posted on July 23, 2007 at 11:30am 1 Comment

There was a really rich forum discussion thread about teachers and

social networking on this ning site. This blog post is kind of a repeat

of my post to this forum discussion, but I feel pretty strongly about

the issue:

Here's the thing that Will doesn't really bring into the discussion.

Look at the psychology of a young person. It's all about the

"friends".....the more "friends" the… Continue

MySpace vs. Facebook

Posted on July 23, 2007 at 8:54am 0 Comments

A very interesting comparison of MySpace and Facebook in an essay from this blog,

From the writer:

"Hegemonic American teens (i.e. middle/upper class, college bound teens from upwards mobile or well off families) are all on or switching

to Facebook. Marginalized teens, teens from poorer or less educated

backgrounds, subculturally-identified teens, and other non-hegemonic

teens continue to be drawn… Continue

Who wouldn't want my job?

Posted on June 29, 2007 at 7:44am 1 Comment

I spoke to a nice young lady this week who seemed like she would be qualified to replace me at my old job. She'd been a teacher for a few years and she had previous experience in the tech field. My former principal thought it would be more effective if I would show this candidate around and explain what it's like to be a tech coordinator. She seemed excited and by the end of our conversation we were speaking to each other as if she already had the position. I was very relieved. We've got a… Continue

Second Life or Real Life

Posted on June 22, 2007 at 12:01am 2 Comments

I've been to SL a few times this week. Meg influenced me, I must admit. I met her there and she gave some "landmarks", which if you don't kow SL, (which I really don't), landmarks are like places to visit. After my visit with Meg and a couple of other teachers, one of which oddly enough is one I know really well, I went back to SL a couple of times. I went to the place that was set up by ISTE for virtual NECC. I never really met anyone though. The NECC conference center and other places that… Continue

Life-long Learning

Posted on June 18, 2007 at 11:54am 0 Comments

Since yesterday was Father's Day, it seems appropriate that I reflect on my own father and his influence on who I am. I first heard the term "lifelong learner" several years ago as I became involved with educational technology. I think the term fits me perfectly. I am constantly acquiring new knowledge, working on new skills, and looking for ways to apply my new knowledge and skills to enhance my life and the lives of others. The tenements of being a lifelong learner require one to ask a lot of… Continue

Hi Nadine. I found you through blogmeister. I am stuck and want to speak to someone about setting it up. Would you be interested in helping me? I have 16 classroom teachers, each having 16-18 students. I want to set it up, have it organized, and then roll it out. I am so stuck though just on creating the student usernames.

Thanks for being my friend, Nadine. I hope it is okay, I add a link to your wiki on my wiki, . Ours is also a professional development wiki - or, a wiki about wikis!

Thanks Nadine--I'm a fan of not re-inventing the wheel. Later tater-N.

Nadine, I visited your wikis and like the way you laid it out in detail for parents, teachers, and students. I was wondering if I could use some of your material to do the same thing for my community of learners. I would certainly cite you as author. Let me know how you feel about that level of sharing---I will certainly understand if you'd prefer not but it would save me tons of work and provide a great service to my kiddos. Thanks, N.

ha ha! my husband teases me endlessly about Twitter: all the other web2.0 tools I use he finds intriguing (and he has adopted some himself in his teaching) but I have yet to persuade him that Twitter is anything but the spawn of the devil. still, I like it!!! I'm looking forward to seeing if my students want to use it this fall. so yes, try it by all means! I bet you'll like it too! :-)

Hello Nadine, thanks for your compliments! I like the idea to team up with up. Please consider to join me on group DigiSkills!
By the way, I´m from Bavaria - a nice landscape in the south of Germany: alps, Munich, a lot of lakes ...

Hi Nadine, yes I agree we are all life-long-learners. I´m from Europe (Germany) and the EU-commission started a new program LifeLongLearning for the next 7 years.

Good we can meet and learn together. Nadine both you and Margaret live in the same town, I am also just a few miles away. But here we don't have to fight Chicago area traffic to meet and learn together!

Hi, Nadine. I will be happy to be your Classroom 2.0 friend. I don't think we've crossed paths, my children are older than yours (in their 20s) and I work in Palos Park District 118.

I have also worked with Meg Ormiston - a good friend in RL as well - and am just finishing a dissertation on educators' responses to Web 2.0 formats. I have done a lot of blogging, but this is my first venture into social networking, too.
