This is a WordPress blog that I redirected to a domain name that I purchased. I wanted a shorter blog address and one that served as the home base of my online presence. I have authored several blogs to support courses that I teach (most in WordPress), but this is my first personal blog. I decided to focus on my teaching and research interests - education, media, and design. It doesn't have much of a history yet, but I am trying to stay focussed and to keep my posts short, with links to the sites and stories that I discuss. I am also trying to use photos (with a Creative Commons license) to illustrate the posts.
I am a curriculum technologist in a PK-5 elementary school in Texas. I do all things technology related on my campus, but my passion is incorporating technology into the curriculum. http://marsid.edublogs.org
I work in a middle school integrating 21st century skills, STEM initatives, Project Based Learning, and NETS standards with the core curriulum facilitating 980 students and 60 teachers. Along with presenting at conferences and inservices I author both a 21 century education Blog and Wiki. My twitter handle is @mjgormans The blog covers current topcs and Wiki has a lot of resources.

I am a former High School Social Studies teacher and am currently an Education Consultant for an audio-visual company. My blog is a combination of tips, tricks, reflections and ideas regarding technology in education.
I teach middle school Language Arts and have been a teacher for about 14 years now (give or take a few...I lose count easily). For much of that time, I have been a traditional teacher. But this past year I have been exposed to so many new learning theories, strategies and methodalities (maybe not a word but it rhymes), that I have been going through a major overhaul. My blog focuses on that tranisition, from old school to new school. I typically write about lessons I use and new strategies and technologies I experiment with. I'm not a big thinker, I am a front-line teacher, so much of what I write about is how to teach the kids in front of me now.
As a newbie to web 2.0, I set up my first 'practice blog' at Blogger, at the suggestion of the Learning 2.0 website. My blog is a descriptive journey of my journey in 'learning how to blog". It can be found at: http://jjfreo.blogspot.com/ .
My intention is with time, that it will be a stand alone, very simply described yet interesting 'How to learn about Web 2.0 for absolute novices'.
It still needs a lot of work, but I am having an extraordinary amount of fun with it, thus affirming how useful it would be for students not only to learn about the web 2.0 world, but to improve their own thinking, writing, and goal setting skills!
I am a K teacher as well as a tutor for 4th-12th graders who struggle with all kinds of issues from ADHD, Asperger's to other learning difficulties. I blog at http://allkidscanflourish.blogspot.com where I talk about a range of topics all relating to bringing out the strengths and helping kids find the passions and interests that will inevitably lead to their success. I recently started another blog where I anonymously look at how some of the practices in schools, ( particularly my school) seem to run counter to the goals of inclusion. I am struggling with how to be an advocate and a voice for all kids without losing my job! I welcome any advice or stories regarding how to authentically question practices without compromising employment. Thanks!
I teach grades 5/4 French Immersion and I occasionally blog @ alilbull.edublogs.org My students are also there, learning how to be courteous web 2.0 users. Our NETS goal for the school is responsible digital citizenship, so I think direct practice is a good way to learn web etiquette.
If anyone has suggestions to make life easier in a split (teaching separate science curricula) I would love to hear from you.
Hello everyone. We (the SimpleK12 team) blog at IHeartEdTech.com. We blog about all things edtech, and try to have fun while we're doing it. We give a lot of stuff away, provide polls, and try to bring a sense of humor to the process.
We love all things education, are pumped up about social media, and enjoy meeting fellow educators at shows and tweet-ups.
Whether you are looking for a school for yourself or for your child, it’s always hard to decide on which institution is best suited for your needs. There are so many choices to consider even without thinking about public or private schools as different entities.However, if you take a look at any student testimonials and pay closer attention to what they have to say, the differences are quite huge indeed.
