Are you out of school yet? Some of my friends from NY state posted on FB today about graduations in their areas. It is hard to imagine being in school so late. Many were out before Memorial day here in SC. However, June has been horrendously hot. I can't imagine trying to teach students under those circumstances.
What are your plans for summer?
I took a couple of short tech classes last week to update my skills using the Promethean Board. Since I will actually teach a tech class this fall, I wanted to know the latest. I also look forward to going to the Nuts and Bolts conference in Boulder in July.
Davilla and Sarita have given you a good overview of the site. I'd like to echo Davilla's recommendation to join one of the discussions in the Forum - or start one of your own.
I notice you are from Vermont. Is it "sugar" time yet? I have dreamed of coming to Vermont during sugaring time since reading a story about it when I was in early elementary school. One of these days, I'll make it. ;-)
What can you tell me about this? There must be lots of science involved! Several years ago i was in VT in the summer. It was a bit disappointing to see the tubes run through the trees; however, I know it is a much more efficient means of gathering.
I look forward to learning with you on MSP2. Please let me know if I can help you here on the site.
Welcome to MSP2! If you are interested, there are three places where you can immediately contribute to this site or take something away. Check out the discussions under forums - Cool Tech Tools, Tips for New Teachers and Science Content Knowledge. There is a great discussion about Integrating Technology, too.
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 the MSP2 Resources box with Math and Science Resource Guides as well as information on Getting Grants and Teacher Opportunities. We hope that members of the network (like you) will help us add content to these pages. On the right side of the Main page we have our two project blogs - Resources for Math and Science and Connecting News. We also RSS feed the Teach Engineering blog and two New York Times blog feeds.
We have several webinars every month on a variety of topics - curricular topics, teaching strategies and technology tools for use in the classroom to name just a few. You can get to the archived recordings of those by clicking on the Webinar Archive link. You can also see all our upcoming events by clicking on the Events tab. We also have a book club that meets periodically, 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!
