I teach middle school science in Lexington, MA, and we are just beginning to come to terms with the new LA standards as they relate to science.
Looking at these new standards, I personally feel that I am not yet meeting them --…"
Do your students struggle with comprehension or vocabulary development? Looking for ways to integrate literacy in your instruction? This group will explore issues related to literacy in middle school science and mathematics.
"Hi everyone. I've been messing around with my first moodle site (www.ClarkeApollo.com) and have some questions I'm hoping someone can answer:
At the bottom of the calendar in Moodle is an iCal button. This allows you to export calendar…"
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 David - Great idea - we've got one scheduled already in October on how citizen science projects can support inquiry. I'm also talking to a couple of other people that I think would be good talking about inquiry. Regards, Kim
Hi David - Hope your summer is going well! I wanted to update you on all our free webinars and get some ideas on what you would like to see us cover in the future.
We've had three Tech Talks so far - one on Interactive Notebooks, Moodle (glad you could join us!), 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
hi David - So glad you joined the MSP2 network. Love the photo - I taught chemistry for years and just had a ball! One time I just about blew out the windows in my classroom igniting hydrogen/oxygen balloons - good times...
We're just getting started so any ideas or feedback you have would be greatly appreciated! We've got lots of resources for middle school math and science teachers - look at the left side of the Main page - Science and Math Publications, Diigo lists, and two project blogs - Connecting News to the National Science Education Standards and Exemplary Resources for Middle School Math and Science. We’re having some really good conversations about integrating technology.
Any special topics or issues you would like to see addressed? Welcome! Kim
