"What is a wiki?" you say. Let's take a look at what a wiki is and how it can be used as a tool for online student collaboration. Whether used to create a reference library or a collaborative teaching tool, wikis are an easily accessible Web 2.0 tool that can be used in any class. Works great in the one-computer room or in the computer lab.Facilitator: Karolee SmileyTo register, go to…See More

Are you looking for a way to interact with your students online? Moodle is designed to help educators create online courses with opportunities for rich interaction. It's free, open source, and can be adapted to any learning environment. Create calendars, message boards, resource pages, wikis, surveys, tests, and more. Tom has used Moodle with his 5th-8th graders for the past 3 years to teach science and technology and will share his experiences with this e-learning platform.Facilitator:…See More
Hi Basilla - So glad you joined the MSP2 network. I wanted to point out that we've got lots of resources for middle school math educators - look at the left side of the Main page - Math Resource Guides, Diigo lists, and project blogs where we highlight exemplary online math and science resources and the research that is going on at the polar regions.
We've had three Tech Talks so far - one on Interactive Notebooks, Moodle, and Digital Storytelling. I see that you said you had trouble getting into the room for the Moodle talk - did you have trouble with the others. Please email me and I can provide more help if you are still having trouble.
You can get to the recordings of those by clicking on the Web Archive link.
You can see all our upcoming events by clicking on the Events tab. The TechTalk topic is Using Wikis. We've got lots more topics to cover in the next few months - technology, pedagogy, content knowledge, all sorts of fun stuff!
Any ideas or feedback you have would be greatly appreciated!
Welcome to MSP2
Glad to see our Tech Talks interest you. If you have any questions or comments, you can add those to the discussion boards. Let us know if there is something in particular you want us to address or other technologies you might want to learn about.
You might also want to join groups, like our Integrating Technology group. Joining groups, adding to discussions, and introducing yourself are great ways to connect with people with similar interests, to find more information and share your own experiences and expertise.
If you need any help or would like to see something added, just let us know.
