About Me:

I am the Director of IT and the Distance Learning Program at Lexington Theological Seminary in Lexington, Kentucky. I am directing the project of converting 2/3s of their face to face classes to online classes. My research interest lies in emerging technology and how this type of technology and social media can promote lifelong learning.

Hi Ben.  I'm new to the PLN group concept, and I'm looking forward to learning from and contributing to your group over time.

Hi Ben: This group is a good fit for my professional and educational paths. I am a library assistant for a community based distance delivery program at a small Canadian university, and an education master's student hoping to specialize in educational technology. Recently, I've become involved in developing online courses using blogs to convey assignments, discussion, and online texts. My aim is to establish a design research component into these courses to evaluate their effectiveness. I look forward to contributing to this group.

Hi Ben! I am a doctoral candidate at Western Connecticut State University in the Instructional Leadership program. I have studied for three years and have just defended my dissertation proposal and received Instructional Review Board approval to conduct research. I am passionate about life long learning and technology. My research study will provide online professional development in technology to K-12 teachers. Thank you for building this space for us! I look forward to collaborating with group members.

Thank you for the link to Qik, Vision and FutureLab. I am boggling my mind over there right now!

I look forward to the conversations that will take place on this group. I do a lot of instruction and presentations with web 2.0 technologies and how they are infused with the Pk-16 curriculum and content areas to support teaching and learning. The threaded discussions so far in this group are very appealing to me!

The author was perplexed when he realized a great many students in his lecture hall were paying attention to Facebook, or attending to email during the course of a two-hour lecture. His school chose to ban tech devices from the lecture hall. Additionally, students were required to use nametags, so that the lecturer could address individual students with questions during the lecture. This…See More
