11/9/2012 10:16:24Jared HeidingerLethbridge/AlbertaWith other educatorsMath/Science love learning from, and sharing ideas with, other teachers. I have found Twitter to be a great resource, almost overwhelming. There are so many good things that educators are doing. It's great for getting a different look at possibilities to improve and augment what I am already doing. I am in the process of adding to my YouTube channel as a way to archive and share media and ideas with other science teachers as well as use it to give my students a taste of my own family. My website is a work in progress, but I want to use it to share with other teachers and my students in a way that is useful to them when they need it. I truly believe that relationship building is the key to quality education. Both from student to teacher and teacher to teacher perspectives. I look forward to connecting with you!

I'd love to connect some of our teachers here with teachers elsewhere doing similar or complementary work across the curriculum. Some of our strongest work online right now is coming from World History, English, Physics, and Visual Arts, but we're always looking for new ways to learn and connect.

11/9/2012 15:10:47Audrey SturtzManson, Iowa BothMath/Science@ms_sturtzI enjoy using social media sites such as Twitter to connect with other teachers. It allows me to collaborate with other people in my field since I am the only teacher in my school who teaches the courses that I teach. Also, as a second year teacher, I enjoy connecting with other teachers to see how they teach certain concepts and which labs/activities/models work the best.

11/10/2012 9:49:06Michelle KraftHarrisburg, PAWith other educatorsEnglish/Social Studies@mnkraftI'm very interested in connecting with other high school teachers who are having success using social media with students. I teach Public Speaking and have been working on fair use, copyright, presentation design, and how social media has had an impact on communication. My district is also considering BYOD, so I'd be interested in ideas on that, as well. I do a lot of technology related professional development training for my district, and I'm sure I'll be asked to develop sessions on all of these topics in the near future. The best resources are definitely other educators who are using these resources successfully!
