Hi my name is Steve Abouldahab, in 3dgl I am Saint Even (St.Even).

I teach french to elementary aged students, but I am also the technology guy in the school. I am looking for new, easy, free tools to show teachers and inspire them to use more technology in the class. Currently pretty much every teacher in my school has a smartboard, which get used pretty often.

My favourite ice cream flavour is Maple Walnut (I am Canadian, of course it is going to be Maple something)

Compared to the teachers in my school I am a 12 out of 10, but looking in this forum I am probably a 5.

Hi My name is Cheryl Briggs. I teach deaf and hard of hearing students in southeastern Pennsylvania. I am an itinerant-going from school to school because our students are spread out all over the county.

I'm looking for free tech tools that are accessible to my students and allows them equal access as hearing students have. Tools like Voicethread which had the ability to use video added specifically at the request of a teacher of the deaf are wonderful for our deaf students.

I would probably be vanilla ice cream since that is my favorite.

On a Scale of 1 to 10, I would rate my ability to use technology as probably a 7 or 8. I hold my master's in instructional technology and fiddle around with flash at the simplest level. I also dabble in 3D artwork through Daz 3D. I prefer a PC but work forces me to use a Mac. I'm definitely more comfortable using the PC than the Mac.

I am looking for a tech tool to help me create blogs and websites
If I were an ice cream flavor I would be rocky road, because that is the way I feel things are going at most times
On a scale of 1-10 I think my tech savy would be around a 7 but it is more likely around a 3 because I don't really know whats out there :)

Everyone seems to be a 7, so I must be a 4 or 5. But I'm willing. Half the battle, right?

Special Education...I have two programs: a multi-district, post-secondary community-based life skills program for students ages 18-22 to prepare them to live as independently as they can and to develop job skills and a 5th year life skills program for students who have just finished high school but who need a year of practice of independent living skills and social skills before heading to college.

I'm looking for a free tech tool that can help me replicate real-world situations/places/problems so that the students can determine the effect of their proposed actions/words...

If I were an ice cream flavor, I would be ginger.

On a Scale of 1 to 10, I would rate my ability to use technology: 8??

That is very similar to what I'm looking for, and what I'm doing my first Quest Chain on! If you're interested in collaborating, let me know... our population of students sounds very similar.

Middle school computer and information literacy

I enjoy looking at all kinds of tech tools. Many of the tools you showed in Tech Tour 1 I have used with students. Because there are always new tools released, I don't think I will ever stop looking for the next new thing. I also share the tools I find with other teachers who might find them valuable.

If I were an ice cream flavor, I would be coffee (can't get enough) with chocolate covered almonds.

On a scale of 1 to 10, I would rate my ability at about an 8, though when you start talking about virtual worlds I am a 0.

"I'm looking for a free tech tool that can [host videos that I have created for my class]."
"If I were an ice cream flavor, I would be [Late Night Snack]."

"Late Night Snack. The Late Night With Jimmy Fallon host helped develop Ben & Jerry's flavor made with chocolate-covered potato chips and caramel. 'He suggested pizza, but we thought that sounded gross,' says Alison Gilbert, brand manager."

I think that this flavor fits me because it is odd, unusual, and a bit weird. I am also corky and stay up late at night. Besides, who doesn't love chocolate, potato chips, and caramel?

"On a Scale of 1 to 10, I would rate my ability to use technology: [8]."

I am sorry that I missed the first live meeting on Thursday. We had family down for Spring Break, and I didn't have much time to get away. I look forward to Tuesday!

My name is Eleanor Schuster. I am a middle school Library Media Specialist - grades 6-8 with about 1150 students. I would like to find more tech tools that can convert formats. Currently I use Format Factory, but I would like to know about what I can use on my mac and any other - better tools that can do this.

If I were an ice cream flavor I would be White Russian - well I'm married to a Byelorussian. On a scale of 1 to 10, I would say a 6 - but depending what company I'm in - could be a 2 or a a 7!

Hi. My name is Ann Pesta. I teach 7th and 8th grade science in Lakewood, Ohio (just west of Cleveland). If I would like to find a tech tool that students could use to convert movies to formats that are recognized by Movie Maker. I also would like to find tools to connect my students to other students from other countries in a safe environment.
If I were a type of icecream I would be neopolatin.
On a scale of 1 - 10 I would say I range from a 6 - 8 depending on who I am being compared to. :)
I'm looking forward to the live chat on Tuesday.

Middle School math and computer classes (North Carolina)

I am looking for free tech tools that are easy to use and that enhance current lessons/curriculum (I hope to work with the teachers at my school on a more one-on-one basis next year and would love to support/encourage the meaningful use of technology in the classroom). I missed the Tech Tools sessions that took place earlier during camp, but I will be sure to check them out soon!

If I were an ice cream flavor, I would be ... hmm, maybe mint chocolate chip. :)

On a scale of 1 to 10, I would rate my ability to use technology a 7.

I teach 7-8 grade math and next year I'll teach a 6th grade 10 week computer technology class for the first time. I'm in a small k-12 school in the southern part of the Adirondack Mountains (NY).

I'm swimming in new ideas and new tools right now, but I guess I'm looking for a tool for exploring math concepts that has more "pop" than the tools on the NCTM illuminations website.

Ice cream: yes please... oh, that wasn't the question. I guess the flavor du jour would be coconut chocolate almond. All the good things rolled into one. Or maybe pistachio, or mocha chocolate chip, or... maybe I'm thinking about this too much. :-)

How do I rate myself in terms of technology usage? What is the number for "enthusiastic neophyte"? 4? 5? 6? 7? Let's just say that I'm learning something new every single day, so my number is changing, slowly, but steadily. This gamelab has been very inspiring for me. I wish I had more time in my day.
