Hi Ellen - Hope your summer is going well! I wanted to update you on our free webinars and hope you can join us for one of them soon.

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

Welcome, Ellen,
With 20 years of experience, you have a great deal to offer this community! I sure hope you will be willing to do so. I also hope that you'll find resources, ideas, support, and new friends to help you along the teaching path.

Hi Ellen - 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 science teachers - look at the left side of the Main page - Science 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. Are there any issues or topics that you would really like see addressed?

I see Todd is one of your friends - he is one of our network hosts - you can ask him anything!

Welcome - Kim
