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.

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!

Self-Regulation: Getting Our Students To Care

I think all educators can agree that we want our students to become better self-regulated learners. However, this is a daunting task for teachers. I've spent a great deal of time trying to teach my grade 6 students various self-regulation skills such as planning, goal-setting, self-monitoring, time management, self-control, and reflection, but in past years it hasn't quite "taken" the way I hoped it would. I talk about how important this skills are until I'm blue in the face and I usually get…See More

School boards and individual teachers are seeking out new ways to improve and maintain their own learning process.

Teachers know that children have a huge capacity for retaining knowledge, and that every child has their own unique way of grasping the information delivered in the classroom.
