I am looking for ways to blog with my students. I would like the blog participants to be by invitation only, so that only my students would be using it. My school corporation is extremely paranoid about such things and would frown upon a…"
Are you looking for a way to interact with your students online? Moodle is designed to help educators create online courses with opportunities for rich interaction. It's free, open source, and can be adapted to any learning environment. Create calendars, message boards, resource pages, wikis, surveys, tests, and more. Tom has used Moodle with his 5th-8th graders for the past 3 years to teach science and technology and will share his experiences with this e-learning platform.Facilitator:…See More
Hi Michelle - So glad you joined the MSP2 network. It would be great if you would add a short bio in your "My Page" Text Box and tell the group a little about your educational world.
In any case, I wanted to reiterate what Mary said and 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. 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!
Hi Michelle - So glad you joined the MSP2 network. I see that you have already signed up for the Moddle for Middle School webinar - which is great! Even though our main audience is middle school - our Tech Talk webinars are for everyone. The same for the resources we create - so even though I see you teach high school mathematics you might want to check out our math resources - look at the left side of the Main page - Math Online Publications, Diigo groups, and one of our project blogs where we highlight exemplary online resources - Exemplary Resources for Middle School Math.
We have the three other scheduled webinars so far -
Interactive Notebooks - 7/29
Digital Storytelling - 8/12
Wikis for the Classroom - 8/19
Hope you'll think about participating in those as well. Are there other topics you would like to see us address? We plan on having these events every couple of weeks during the school year.
