Hi Kristen,

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. You'll also see that we have some links in the MSP2 Resources box - Getting Funding, Favorite Blogs, and Freeware/Shareware. We hope that members of the network will help us add content to these pages.

We've had several Tech Talks recently - on Reading in Mathematics, Interactive Notebooks, Diigo, Moodle, Wikis, 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 recently had the first meeting of our book club, check out the Book Club Group for more information on that.

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

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

Sarita
