Classroom 2.0 Live......
My favourite social network for learning about Projects and web 2.0 Tools in Education
About two years ago I came across this really interesting social network- teachers who are interested in technology should all check it. I was looking for webinars online which I could watch live without having to pay.
I speak English and German and I have always loved learning from the others and from communities of teachers and educators- they have helped me a lot. I could work by using the target language and learn something new while I was sitting in my home without having to rush to conferences or special events.
Some years before I had won a scholarship which had been financed by a European Project named Comenius and the teachers who were working with me showed me how they had used web 2.0 tools in education. I ralized that as a teacher of English I needed to learn more as I had not been trained and I was used only to studying about methodologies and new approaches dealing with TEFL and ESL.
An interesting Community with lots of Presentations and Ideas
I started following the webinars they run every Saturday and my life changed as I was getting more involved in my CPD and learning about the use of web tools in education.
If you check the website you will find a lot of links as the co-founders or rather one of the many who have been working on the website are educators who have always been involved in education. Among them I have been following Peggy George who is a great educator, she shares resources and supports educators in the USA and also people like me who are living in Europe.

The webpage opens with a nice layout and you have access to plenty of information and you can learn about important events which they promote and support.
THE LEARNING REVOLUTION PROJECT
A source of resources online- for free: videos, links and resources shared and collected by Peggy George and her team of collaborators
It all started in 2009 and this afternoon we celebrated the anniversary online:
For each year we have been given plenty of Livebinders and the videos can be seen online.
