My name is Larry and I teach grade 6 core subjects in a large town in Alberta, Canada. I use a lot of technology in my classes, having one-to-one iPads and netbooks in my classroom. All of my Math and Science is done using 3D GameLab, and the students love it. Currently, my favourite tech tools ate Bitstripsforschools, Edu.glogster, Kidblog, proprofs, Todaysmeet, and Google Drive.

Hi All! My name is Mark Tennyson (DramaJock). Currently I teach Computers and Drama. I direct two shows a year for the Middle School. (a play and a musical), A Middle School Christmas Program, A 2-week Summer Performing Arts Workshop, and the 3rd-5th grade spring program. I also sing in the choir and coach Cross Country, Basketball, and Golf.

I Love Google Apps. We just started with it here in the middle school and it has been a lifesaver. I use Youtube to post videos for my class and We use edmodo for our class social network and for completing some assignments.

I am just beginning to add more online tools. Our internet connection is flakey so I try to roll things out slowly. So I am always open to more tools

Hi All!
My name is Jennifer Fenton and I am the Technology for Learning Coordinator at an international school in Geneva, Switzerland. I am new to this role (and country) but have been passionate about the ability of effective tech integration to transform education for some time. I support teachers and students in Years 3-6 (American grades 2-5) which means I work a great deal with teachers and collaborative planning as well as working with students through modelling lessons for teachers and occasionally taking classes for them. I also run a coding club (just started after being inspired by the Hour of Code) and am seeking ways to implement quest based learning.

We are a Google Apps for Ed school and I love the suite of apps we use. There are so many tools that I love to use, it's hard to just pick a few favourites. I guess Google Sites would be one of them. I use them with students for projects and digital portfolios as well as for platforms for teacher workshops. I've just seen Socrative on one of the examples and am planning to use it today - thanks!!

My Twitter handle is @jennysfen and my personal blog is Reflective Practice. I cannot share any of the school sites as they are protected.

Hi!
My name s Jeff Clark and I am a sixth grade English teacher from Cheektowaga, New York. At school, I am a video game integrator, club advisor, varsity track coach, and cross country coach. At home, I am a father of two amazing little girls, a runner, gamer, and learner.

I consider myself a tech newbie, as I am not too experienced with the large wealth of online resources that our out there. In my class we integrate Playstation 3s, Xbox360s, and an original Wii system into our curriculum.

As far as what I want to learn more about, I am open to EVERYTHING! If there is one thing I have learned in my ten years of teaching, it is that I am always evolving and changing how I approach teaching.

My Twitter handle is @MrJeffClark (It doesn't get much use) and my website is patientnumberzero.com and over the summer my hope is to create my second site swordofthescribe.com

My name is Ian McKinney I am an art and CS teacher at a non-profit independent day school in Kalamazoo MI.

I use a lot of different online and open source tools my favorite tool for learning new stuff is stumble upon. I am really excited about 3D Gamelab and I have already started using live binder after reading the first quest.

I have not used twitter in a couple years but I am planning on getting back into it and using it as a tool for my students.

My name is Angela Kitchin and I teach English I Honors at Craven Early College in New Bern, NC.
I teach in a 1:1 school, so I use technology seemlessly everyday. All of my students have school-given Google accounts, so my number one tool is Google Drive. I also like Wikispaces, Voki, Windows Movie Maker, and iBuildApp.
I want to know about every tech!

Hello! My name is Nikki Hubbard and I teach English at Camdenton High School in Missouri. I have really enjoyed working my way through the Academy and am now branching out to other arenas, like this one! Currently, I love using Edmodo apps and Weebly for my students, and this summer I am excited about experimenting with all of the cool things I have learned about in Game Lab. After looking through the initial quest, I opened a Live Binder account and am anxious to start using it. I do have a Twitter account, but I am VERY new to it, so I would rather just share the blog I have put together to respond to the different quests I completed in the Academy: http://514820877813068063.weebly.com/

Looking forward to more informative quests! :)
