Hi Carol - Hope your summer is going well! I wanted to update you on our free webinars and hope you can join us for one of them soon and share information about them with your students.
We've had three Tech Talks so far - one on Interactive Notebooks, Moodle, and Digital Storytelling. 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 next 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 on additional topics or feedback you have would be greatly appreciated! Kim
A math person! You might want to join the math group and see what they are up to. And be sure to invite some of you up and coming teachers. Hopefully we can start to build a useful network for them.
Hi everyone! I'm an assistant professor at a small univeristy in SD where I teach math methods to our K-8 elementary majors. Our state is working on improving mathematics pedagogy. The first step was to increase elementary teachers' content knowledge. While doing that we try to model standards based instruction in the classroom. Specifically we have been using the cognitively guided instruction from Carpenter, et al. It's exciting to finally see some things happening in this area!
I was a former middle school math teacher, K-12 math supervisor and middle school curriculum coordinator before coming to the university.
Welcome to the (MSP)2 network. We are just getting things rolling and we are so excited to get started and have new members join in.
Being new, we need feedback and we would love to hear your ideas.
Please introduce yourself, let us know if you are a math or science teacher, and feel free to join one of the groups too.
