Watch the Yahoo! Teachers video featuring Sue Wright.
We met teachers from every region of the United States, along with teachers from Sweden, Canada, Ireland, U.K., and Hong Kong who were were excited to hear about Yahoo! Teachers. We were also excited to be able to show them the video that featured Sue Wright, one of our 2006 Yahoo! Teachers of Merit Program.
Having the opportunity to listen to so many educators tell us their stories, fueled our passion for this project. It also reaffirmed our belief that Yahoo! Teachers isn't just about technology (although it's really cool!), it's also about relationships. We appreciate all the teachers who took time to share their stories with us and look forward to hearing more of your stories and feedback at our Yahoo! Teacher workshops this summer.
We are so appreciative of our Yahoo! Teachers of Merit for taking time out of their busy life and summer vacation to partner with us to steer the development of Yahoo! Teachers. Over the course of the last year, they have caught the vision of how social media tools can be leveraged to support the teaching community.
So if you haven't already, please take a tour of Yahoo! Teachers, put yourself on the map and sign-up for an invite. We're just getting started and we want you to join us!
And if you're going to NECC 2007, be sure to stop by the Yahoo! Teachers booth, pick up some swag, and say hello! We'd love to hear your story too!
