Users of Blackboard Collaborate
As the founder of the Professional Learning Network called Technology Integration in Education (http://www.technologyintegrationineducation.com) with over 10000 members globally, combined through sites such as Linkedin, Ning, Twitter, Facebook, Diigo and more, I have been using technology such as Ning to make a difference in the way educators teach around the world. As part of the expansion plans for my website http://www.technologyintegrationineducation.com I plan to host various webinar series that will allow my members to come together and share best practices on how they will use or have used technology in their daily teachings. Through the use of a product such as Blackboard Collaborate 11, I will be able to offer up a broader offering to all of my members. Many of my members are not only educators but vendors of educational product as well. Blackboard Collaborate 11 will allow them also a place to showcase their product and open up discussions on ways the product can be improved in order to best serve the needs of those who use it, the teachers.
As an educator myself for the past 15 years in a very poor urban school district, I am well aware of the power to collaborate with others outside of my school and district.
