David Lawrence commented on Tom Jenkins's blog post Session Archive: Tech Talk: Moodle for Middle School

David Lawrence replied to Kim Lightle's discussion To Twitter or Not to Twitter - Is That Even a Question Anymore?
"I am beginning to fool around with Moodle, and though some of it is intuitive, I'm still trying to figure some of it out. Can anyone recommend a brief tutorial for setting up classes?"

Thanks for joining the MSP2 Book Club. Haven't decided what to read this next time - any ideas?

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
