Thanks, Tracey. Perhaps if there is support for a project from MSP2, we can keep the collaboration going. Also, if we can get a few more people involved, maybe it will be more self-sustaining. With a few, if one drops the ball, it puts a real damper…

Tracey, thank you for your insight! Can you share with us where you found the project? Was there support from the source, or were teachers pretty much on their own after they registered? How were you supposed to exchange information?

Amy, I am a technology educator who loves to integrate the academic subjects into my technology classes. My view is that the computer is a tool, just like a pencil. We need to use it to learn the academic areas, not learn skills in isolation. What a…

Karen, Thank you for sharing this article. It looks as if it is a great introduction to what we are trying to achieve here on MSP2. It is also a good guide as more and more schools/educators realize the importance to emphasize the STEM subjects in e…

I apologize I never get the chance to comment back (just to much things goin on..) but I definitely will keep up my profile up here. Hope you're doing okay, and I will try to link MSP2 in my class blog. Regards!

Thanks, Rebecca for your warm South Carolina welcome! Sorry that it has taken me so long to answer! You mention Tom's blog. Do you have an address---or did I miss it? Many thanks. Currie

Thanks for your warm welcome. Vermont is truly a beautiful state and the cool nights of March and April will hopefully make this a good season for Maple Sugaring. I would also imagine that North Carolina is a very green state as well. Have been working on the Pringles Challenge with several colleagues. Been teaching 7th and 8th grade for many wonderful years. There is always something new to learn and technology has revolutionized everyone's information. Let me know if I can help you with any math and science ideas.

Great question on how to get more to comment- I wish I had an easy solution. I think encouraging those who are commenting to continue is a good start- hopefully this will prompt others to join in.

I'm looking forward to participating in discussions!

Thanks for the comments. I saw this website in the latest issue from NMSA and thought it sounded interesting. The free webinars are what brought me to the site and I've only had time to do a bit of browsing, but am looking forward to growing professionally through this site.

I'll post in the forum as soon as the dust settles a bit from NSELA & NSTA. Each evening, I'm trying to catch up on the day's business :)

Hi Rebecca,

Yes, I want to start several forums for members to add tips and comments regarding "technology integration", "being a new teacher", and "content knowledge". I am hoping that the forums will be the starting point for building up the wikis (webinar archives or NSDL) .

So, here is the plan. When I welcome new members, I will ask them several questions about the areas that they have selected as "I can help with". If they respond, I will take their tips, ideas, resources (websites or wikis) or comments and post them into the designated forums. If members contribute websites or wikis, I can add those to the wikis.

What are your thoughts? Thank you for the welcome comment!!

Hi Rebecca,

My father's family has traced their history through the western most portion of the country, particularly CA and UT. While I am not a Mormon, it seems that there was a Varner as one of early leaders in that religion. Awarded great reverence within their history and early development. My paternal grandfather & grandmother left the fold and moved to Coronado, CA.

I do work at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center as an education specialist assigned as a liaison to RI, MA and CT. Prior to moving to MD for this amazing position, I spent most of my professional life in north central Florida as a science educator. I agree with you that the launches are a unique experience! I have recently had a couple of opportunities to support the families attending the launches with educational materials for the youngsters.

I have personal ideas regarding the incorporating of technology into science classes and would be interested in sharing these thoughts, although I cannot say they represent NASA education.

Online learning communities and the discussions are something I am just becoming acquainted with and the NSELA program was one of my efforts to learn more. I very much enjoyed the presentation and have taken away much from the short time together.
