Nancy Carrol: Mother, Wife, Daughter, Sister, Friend, 4th Grade Teacher! I am in my twenty-second year of teaching, and believe it or not I’m still very passionate about my students, my job and about technology. Recently I received a Master’s degree in Assistive Technology. It is my hope to incorporate what I learned in the program and transfer that to my classroom in an effort to help my students learn!
Bill Krakower teaches in the Woodland Park School District. He teaches Computer Skills to grade three & four. He also teaches special education students in grades three, four and five. Recently, he finished his advance certificate in Educational Leadership at Long Island University Hudson Campus and also has received a dual Masters Degree in Special Education & Elementary Education from the Hudson Campus. Bill is the co-founder of #elemsci chat and co-moderators for #njed chats. He has developed wiki sites for #elemsci, #njed, #satchat & #edcampnj. Bill enjoys doing mystery Skype’s with his computer classes when he is not teaching them the important 21st skills. @wkrakower firstname.lastname@example.org
I am presently working on my Master’s in Educational Technology at Michigan State University
I have a classroom blog at http://powell4thgrade.blogspot.com/ where we share all of the wonderful learning opportunities that are going on in our classroom.
Many of the Skype connections I have made were through Twitter- and in particular by #4thchat
I had the opportunity to share Mystery Skype in a video/tutorial with the REMC Connected Educator Series at http://www.remc.org/projects/connectededucator/
