Hi Mrs. A - 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 (were you able to attend?), 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
If you visit our favorite blog page (look at the left hand side of the main page near the top), you'll see one of my personal favorites - Unwrapping the Gifted. It isn't math or science related, but Tamara Fisher does a great job of posting thoughtful entries about working with K-12 gifted students. If I find anything else, I'll let you know!
Hello, Mrs. A. Thanks for joining MSP2. Do you belong to any other professional portal or virtual learning community sites? We're hoping MSP2 will provide folks with resources and opportunities to establish new, helpful professional relationships for learning and professional growth.
I hope you'll be willing to explore resources, participate in discussions, comment on blog posts, and share your experience and knowledge.
Hi Mrs. A! 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.
On the main page, you'll also see that we have several groups, including Science and Integrating Technology. I would encourage you to join or more and start a conversation. Are there any specific topics or issues you would like to see addressed?
Again, welcome and thanks for joining us!
