Diane Munzar commented on Middle School Portal's group Integrating Technology
"Why use Notebook 10? I find it better than Web 2.0 tools as they are completely integrated into the program. Checkout Notebook 10 at SMART and look at the Activity toolkit 2.0.. Amazing for teachers as well as students."

Hi Diane - Wanted to update you on our free webinars. 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

Well actually...next year I am only teaching math and language arts to the Sec. 1 students as the rest of my assignment is tied up with language arts resource and our arts program. If you wanted to do something with science Barb Plouffe will be doing the science. Although with that said, we could certainly do something integrated/ cross-curricular. I am very interesting in doing something like this so we will have to put some more thought in to it.

Enjoy your trip out west. We're heading east in another 2 weeks. Can't wait to get away.

Absolutely...I think that would be great.

Thanks for the info, Diane. I bet we could find you some Skype pals here on MSP2.
Here are 2 suggestions to start the process:
1. post a blog about what you're interested in doing--what kind of project, what age group, where you'd like your "videopals" to be located (if that matters)
2. post or pose the question on the "Integrating Technology" group, as well as the math and/or science groups (depending on the subject area), providing the same kinds of info.

I'm happy to help you find a group. Also....idea #3: the 3 Teacher Leaders, Karolee Smiley, Todd Williamson, and Tom Jenkins, would be good people to let know and request assistance. Perhaps one of them might even be interested, or might have a colleague that would be interested.

Let me know how I can help.

i'll come over sometime once you're back and ask you what to do with the organizing primarily.
are you using the science book Eureka!? We haven't chosen one yet. You should come in August when you come for the BBQ and we will show you the labs.

Hi Diane - So glad you joined the MSP2 network. 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 - Math Publications, Science Publications,, Diigo lists, and three project blogs where we highlight lots of exemplary online math (and science) resources - Resources for Middle School Math and Science, Polar Research, and Connecting News.

I see you also marked "Other" in your profile - I'm curious what your other is. I'm also looking forward to hearing what kinds of issues you are having - and how they compare to the US.

Welcome – Kim

Hi Diane,
I hope this may provide some resources for your new Science position!
