Don - I could use help with that too! I am integrating technology into my preservice courses and projects (including this one - MSP2) in a major way. The frustrating part is that teachers (and students) go to school and power down - a tremendous number of these tools are blocked. What is NEA's position on technology in schools? Kim

Hi Don - Love the picture - are you surfing on the Potomac? HA. What professional organization are you with? In any case - let me second Sarita's welcome. You've joined a professional community of educators that runs the gamut - preservice all the way to educators that have had 40 years of experience. I'm hoping that the community will share, create, and learn from each other.

We have lots of upcoming webinars (ones sponsored by MSP2 and other organizations) - click on the Events tab to look at those.

We also have other Groups (click on the Groups tab) that you might be interested in joining. We are having a book club this fall - it would be great if you would join us in reading Omnivore's Dilemma.

We would appreciate any feedback or ideas for resource guides or webinars. Welcome! Kim

Hi Don,

Welcome to the MSP2 community! So glad you've joined us.

Have you had a chance to explore the site, yet? You'll find lesson ideas, digital resources for classroom use, and connections to current news items. Look at the left side of the Main page and you'll find Math and Science Resource Guides, Diigo lists, and project blogs to name just a few.

We've had several Tech Talks recently - on Interactive Notebooks, Moodle, and Digital Storytelling. You can get to the recordings of those by clicking on the Web Archive link. You can also see all our upcoming events by clicking on the Events tab.

We're also soon to be adding resources for youth - a series of virtual learning experiences for students. So plenty more to come!

Finally, we would be very grateful if you could provide some more information about yourself in your profile - you can also write more of a bio in your text box on your My Page. If fact, there are all sorts of things that you can do to personalize your experience in this network - we're having our next online "getting started" session October 6 - hopefully, you'll be able to join us.

Please send any ideas or feedback you have about MSP2 our way, your thoughts would be greatly appreciated!
