"Just reading about Scratch which you mentioned yesterday during your Moodle talk. Before using Scratch with your students do you teach how to use and how much time do you spend teaching the program? Do you spend 45 minutes or does it take less time?…"

Hi Kay - So glad you joined the MSP2 network. I see you chose "Other" - I'm always curious about people's background - would you be willing to share what your position is? We really are trying to meet the needs of a varied audience and knowing who our members are sure helps.

In any case, I wanted to point out that we've got lots of resources for middle school math and science educators - look at the left side of the Main page - Math and Science Resource Guides, Diigo lists, and project blogs where we highlight exemplary online math and science resources and the research that is going on at the polar regions.

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 which I see you've signed up to attend - wonderful. We've got lots more topics to cover in the next few months - technology, pedagogy, content knowledge, all sorts of fun stuff!

Any ideas or feedback you have would be greatly appreciated!

Welcome – Kim

Hi Kay
Welcome to MSP2
Glad to see you jump in there with novel titles for math classes. I have read some of those... great books!
So, you hinted that you are changing schools. What will you be teaching at your new school? You might want to introduce yourself here and join groups. Its a great way to find more people with similar interests, to find information and share your own experiences and expertise.
If you need any help or would like to see something added, just let us know. We are here to help you.
