Hi Karen - Welcome aboard! Let me tell you a little about MSP2 - we are using this NING network as a place where educators can connect with each other (through answers to profile questions and the advanced Members search) and also as a way to connect educators with exemplary resources and professional development opportunities. Please check out our guide to Making the Most of MSP2.

If you look on the Main page - you'll see MSP2 resources in the upper left hand box - we have resource guides where we have sifted and sorted and contextualized resources on topics important to middle school math and science teachers (including science fairs), the ability to search the MSP2 collection, and pages of teacher and student opportunities and grants. We've had quite a few webinars that we've recorded. You can see the archive of all our recordings here - the link is also on the MSP2 homepage.

One other thing -- to help you find resources and discussions and personalize your experience with MSP2, we've got a new tool called PedConnect that shows up on the main page carousel (middle column) and on your "My Page." Click on the link that says: "Click here to update your keyword selections" on the Resources or Interesting Discussion pages. The selections you make will be reflected in the resources and discussions that are suggested. PedConnect also shows your activity on MSP2 (number of blog posts, discussion posts, and comments) every time you log in. We would really appreciate any feedback you have as you use the tool.

Please don't hesitate to post a question or comment on a discussion or blog post. We are always looking for topics for webinars too. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated! So glad you joined! Kim
