Hello everyone,

 

I have the unique opportunity to teach Spanish as a foreign language to elementary students. I love projects and need more help in managing these across age groups. I hope to learn more about PBL and how to integrate technology with PBL.

I'm currently a Librarian but may be teaching a multi-age (4th/5th/6th) gifted program next year. I've always liked the idea of Project Based learning but haven't had time in a regular classroom to try it. I'm looking forward to learning more :)

My name is Lisa and I teach in the elementary schools. I have been a SpEd teacher, 3-5 grade classroom teacher, and an Interventions teacher. I am always wanting to learn new things to enhance my teaching, hence my doing this webinar.

Technology Teacher Grades 4-6

I have been a 4th grade teacher for 6 years and I start a new assignement for 2010-2011. I'm a new technology and enrichment teacher and I'm interested in helping intermediate school teachers that teach grades 4-6 with their technology integration. I'd like to build in more social networking skills, web 2.0 tools that create a more interactive classroom, and provide more choice and relevancy in projects that can be broader in scope, and more global in application.

Hi Mary.  Your content area is very interesting: Equine and Animal Science.  Is this considered an Agricultural Certification in your state?  Will you focus on the effects the oil spill has had on the marine mammals or some other aspect of the oil spill?  There is so much that could be done with this.  I am a biology and biotechnology teacher here in San Francisco (currently lacking an assignment for 2010-2011) in grades 9-12th.  I am thinking about  exploring this topic through the ecological engineering and biotech connection. I'd love to hear your ideas.
