  • Tampa, FL
    • Jerry Swiatek, swiatekj@citrus.k12.fl.us. I am an Instructional Technology Specialist at a public high school in a small town in West Central Florida about 60 miles north of Tampa. Tampa is a pretty central Florida location and I believe a Classroom 2.0 event here would be very successful and I would love to help in any way I possibly can.
  • Cincinnati, Ohio
    • Colleen Gerke, cgerke@saint-max.org. I am a Director of Faith Formation at a large suburban parish and also part of the Cincinnati Religious Education Association and am willing to promote such an event for Catholic institutions in the area.
  • Albany, NY
    • Bonnie Farrell, b.farrell@hvcc.edu. I am an Instructional Designer for Hudson Valley Community College. We have a concentration of colleges in our area with teacher education programs. I feel this would be a well received event in this area and would love to help to put it together.
    • Liz Gallo, liz.gallo26@gmail.com I am Technology Education Teacher in a Charter school on Long Island. It is my first year as a teacher and my principals want me to create a Flat Classroom. I need help, advice and suggestions. I am willing to travel to Albany for this wonderful idea.
  • Alexandria, VA
  • Amarillo, TX
    • Heather Voran: heather.voran@esc16.net -I was just elected to the Texas Computer Education Association board as representative for Area 16, and I'd love to have something like this for our teachers in the Panhandle of Texas. Possibly in combination with Area 17, which includes the Lubbock area.
  • Augusta, ME
    • Cynthia Streznewski: Cynthia_Streznewski@maranacook.org I am a Computer Science Teacher at Maranacook Community High School in Readfield, ME just outside of Augusta. I would love to help Classroom 2.0 come to Maine.
  • Austin, TX
    • Lisa Burden, lisa.burden@killeenisd.org Although I do not live in Austin, our district (60 miles away) has just spent lots of money bringing Ian Jukes to speak to us about Web 2.0 and it implications for schools. We are also working wth the Schlechty Center to make our students' work more engaging and I believe I could spark interest here to support you, if not in Austin proper. Austin, being centrally located in the vast state of Texas (!) would be a great central location for all of Texas. The Killeen ISD school board president just came to our campus to see what we are doing there because he heard such good things. I presented my student's wikispaces which I use as a social networking site at my campus... http://sraburden.wkispaces.com ...some of my students' links are there too...you should see what we are doing! I aready gave an overview to teachers at my campus and am set to give more in-depth training there, and have committed to help Prfoessional Development provide classes for this in the district. I tried to get to the current Classroom 2.0 LIVE in San Francisco to help me do that and even to give a workshop myself there but I just couldn't find the $500 available on such short notice (just found out about it last week!) I would certainly love to spearhead this. I've already talked to the head of Prefessional Development about going to San Fran and she LOVES what I'm doing but couldn't send me. I will talk to her next week about bringing you guys here. They already use wikis in their planning at the upper echelon administrative levels of our 42,000 student district, so they are already keen on the idea and this would be putting their money where their mouth is! We really are committed to it and the school board is on board too. I can't wait!!

I am involved in both Nassau and Suffolk schools and organizations on Long Island with some contacts upstate as well. Buffalo is very far from us, so somewhere near NYC would probably be best. If there are enough participants we would love a workshop right on Long Island. Summer is best or late May/June. Another possibility is having workshops at NECC in San Antonio this year. Thank you in advance!

  • Orem, Utah

    • Jared Stein: steinja@uvsc.edu -- I'm director of Instructional Design Services for Distance Education at UVSC in Orem, Utah. The format and topics of this workshop have excited me. We currently run a summer conference, the Teaching with Technology Idea Exchange June 5-6, 2008. I'm almost tempted to propose appending one of these workshops onto the Saturday immediately following TTIX. I just wonder if that'd be too much for some folks. At any rate, I would be happy to get involved with or at least participate in such a conference anywhere in Utah.


leyla.shaughnessy@ocps.net

  • Phoenix, Arizona

    • Julia Lott: julia_lott@gilbert.k12.az.us - I am an Eastside AzTEA Chapter Co-chair and our Instructional Technologists very much enjoyed the Classroom 2.0 training we held in Paradise Valley last May 2008. The Eastside Chapter is currently planning a similar workshop for Information technology administrator and directors. We would love to replicate the format we used last year and try to get some conversation started with administrators and instructional technologists, who are open to Web 2.0 tools, and those who are more cautious. Collaborating and discussing the issues related to implementation of these new web 2.0 tools would be a goal of this workshop. I am not sure if this fits within the scope of your goals, but if so and you would like to participate, collaborate or just plan the whole thing, our target date is April 30-May 1, 2009, Thursday and Friday before the last AzTEA conference of the year, Way out West (WOW) on Saturday May 1st. If this is something of interest and we can work it out, perhaps you would consider staying for the Conference and presenting there as well.
    • Jennifer Merrill: jennifer_merrill@gilbert.k12.az.us - I am the Instructional Technology Coordinator in Gilbert Public Schools and would love to have my 11 Instructional Technologists be able to attend and participate. Our teachers are ready to move forward with our Virtual Classroom (Moodle) and my staff is desiring additional experience to help them support our teachers. I'd like to see an opportunity to provide some instruction/sharing of these tools with our principals and district administrative team to help get them "on board" as well. I am a an Executive Board Member of AzTEA (Az's ISTE affiliate) and am willing to speak with some of our corporate sponsors and some of the vendors I work with in our district to see if we can obtain sponsorship to offer workshops in Gilbert.
    • Brett Hinton brett.hinton@azed.gov - Educational Technology Program Specialist @ Arizona Department of Education & AzTEA member - I would love to see this offered so that schools from throughout the Phoenix metro area could also attend.
    • Julia Lott: julia_lott@gilbert.k12.az.us - I am an Eastside AzTEA Chapter Co-chair and would be willing to promote this training with our members and with schools that have teachers who are members of the Eastside AzTEA Chapter. Most of our Planning Committee members are responsible for supporting teachers and helping them integrate technology. We fully support Jennifer's idea of providing some information and support to our principals and district administrative teams. Thanks Jennifer for the offer of hosting the workshops in Gilbert. That is a very central location for the Eastside Schools. Another idea would be to schedule the same training at three different locations in the valley, three different times such as Gilbert for teachers east and more south, Paradise Valley for the teachers in the northern part of the valley, and somewhere out west for the teachers there. I will notify the Eastside planning committee to see if we can get their thoughts and ideas.
    • Cherie Stafford: cstafford@pvschools.net - I am a Technology Integration Facilitator for the Paradise Valley Unified School District and am sure there would be much interest in conducting this conference in the Phoenix area. I believe Spring or early summer (early June) might work best for most. We have many teachers ready to move forward to learn about and use web 2.0 technologies. I believe PVUSD would work to be able to host at least a day of this event.
    • Ann Lumm: alumm@schools.maricopa.gov - I am a Technology Integration Specialist for Maricopa County with the Statewide Instructional Technology (SIT) Project. I am also on the leadership team for the Westside AzTEA Chapter. Maricopa County is a huge county with over 55 public school districts and many charter, private and parochial schools. Teachers are always looking for quality Professional Development that will help them meet the needs of their students. I know there would be tremendous support for these workshops. We have a training facility located in central Phoenix that could accommodate 25-30 participants. There are school districts that I work with in the Phoenix area that would offer their facilities for these workshops.
    • Peggy George: pgeorge@mac.com - I am a Co-Chair of the Westside AzTEA chapter and am very enthusiastic about supporting and helping to bring this fantastic opportunity to the Phoenix Metropolitan area. Since our state-wide AzTEA conference is being held on Saturday, May 3 it would probably be better to target the beginning of June for the conference. Most schools are out for the year after May 30. Another great location to consider for the conference is the Cartwright Training Center which can accommodate 250-300 people and has wireless access for all with built-in LCD projectors and screens. The recent Discovery Education Network Virtual Conference was held there. This would be a fantastic time to offer this web 2.0 training so teachers could explore it throughout the summer "break." :-)

I am confident that the Public Schools here would also be very interested in something of this nature.

  • Lisa Schwartz,linquiry@gmail.com I work as a technology integration and outreach coordinator for the University of Arizona / Tucson GEAR UP Project partnership. I am also a PhD student at the UA in Language Reading and Culture (Education). I have longstanding experience using web 2.0 tools for learning and public education. Tucson GEAR UP is a college readiness program that currently serves all 9th grade students at 2 high schools in the Sunnyside School District and 3 in the Tucson Unified School District (~3,600 students). The students we work with are characterized as "under-served". As part of the Digital Advantage program, the Sunnyside District awarded laptops to 505 freshmen from Desert View and Sunnyside high schools on January 8, 2009 at UA’s Centennial Hall. The UA College of Science team has been asked to help the district plan how to use the laptops. First on our agenda is professional development on Nings. I created sites for each school site that are now managed independently. Help with workshops for the Tucson GEAR UP Project, or for the Sunnyside and Tucson Unified School Districts (or Tucson in general) would be incredible as this is a really under-served aspect of professional development in the area and the use of Web 2.0 should be championed for our students (as opposed to demonizing Web 2.0, and the students also). We could also invite teachers from Nogales/Rio Rico area GEAR UP program. We had a huge turnout for the one Web 2.0 workshop we did....

    • Sioux Falls, SD
      • Tracy Vik, tracy.vik@k12.sd.us . The Sioux Falls School District and surrounding districts would greatly benefit from a workshop such as this. We host the annual Educators Summer Symposium in June each year and last year had over 700 educators fro 120 different communities attend. A Web 2.0 component would greatly enhance our conference but would also be a huge resource as a stand alone workshop. I will help organize in any way possible. Thank you for your consideration!

UK john.warwick@stlukes.herts.sch.uk Using web 2 tools in the educational setting is developing well in the UK. There are pockets of excellent practice particularly in some Primary / Junior schools. The National Federation for Educational Research (nfer) were undertaking some UK research in 2008 re Using social software for teaching and Learning. Im not sure whether this has been published yet though. Anyone know ? Best wishes Steve. How about an online web2 workshop ?
