Hi Eileen
Welcome to MSP2.
Glad to see you jump on in. I agree with you about letting the kids find the answer. It is so much more memorable and they learn so much more.

Besides the discussion boards, Ning has other tools to network and share. You can create a blog, join groups, and so much more. I encourage people to introduce themselves, so everyone can get to know them and what they love to do. I look forward to hearing more about your science projects.

If you need help with anything, just let us know.

Thanks, Eileen. I thought I had recognized your name from MiddleTalk! Please feel free to cross-post, share conversations and discussions back and forth, anything to assist both sides of the fence. By the way, we're having a little discussion on problem-based learning right now. Care to weigh in??

Welcome, Eileen! We're so glad you've joined MSP2, and hope that you will find people and resources to support you in your work. We hope that you'll be willing to share your experience and knowledge with others here, as well.

I'd be curious as to what prompted you to join MSP2, and if there is anything in particular for which you are looking, which you hope to gain, that you are eager to contribute!

Again, welcome!
