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!
