Hi Rhonda - Never did the focus group scheduled... we'll try again this fall. In any case -
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, 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

Hi Rhonda - So glad you joined the MSP2 network! We're just getting started so any ideas or feedback would be greatly appreciated. We're in the process of making it pretty - new banner, colors, etc. We've put together some really good science and math resources for middle school teachers - look at the left side of the Main page - publications, Diigo groups, and two blogs - Connecting News and Resources for Science and Math. There have been some really good discussions happening in the Integrating Technology group - one has just started up on Blogging with Students. Welcome - Kim
