I have enjoyed reading Jenny Luca's blog, Lucacept- Intercepting the Web. She is the Director of ICT and elearning at Toorak College in Mt. Eliza in Melbourne, Australia. She is fascinated by Web 2.0 applications and their potential in educational settings. Jenny says she launched herself headfirst into this world in 2008. She has found the experience to be transformative. It's her aim to share what she discovers with us through her blog.

My name is Briann Smith and I am a student in EDM310 at the University of South Alabama. In my EDM310 class, I blog as well.

The movie was very entertaining. I look forward to your future posts!Alice.

I enjoyed reading your blog post on the Programming Challenge 4 Girls event. It seems like you and your students had a great time.

As you said in your post, there needs to be a better representation of women in the field of computer programming. The post was very imformative and I look forward to your future posts!
