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.
Is there anything I can help you with right now regarding integrating technology?
Do you have a favorite resource for lessons, videos, or content material for your classroom? Please reply to this comment or post under forums "Science Content Knowledge".
I am glad you joined us!
I hope you have had a chance to look around. Now that you are here with us, you can start to explore the site and look for opportunities to learn and share in this professional network.
Be sure to look at the resources on the home page. The NSDL site will take you to several sites that can help you in lesson planning, educational strategies, or opportunities to access other resources.
To help connect with people with similar interests, you may want to join groups. Group discussion provide a place for you to share your ideas with others and have some of your own questions answered by your peers. I am looking for feedback from other teachers about science fairs. I would love to hear some of your ideas and concerns.
There are also events, like the Tech Talks, available. Tech Talks are recorded, so if you miss a one, you can check out the recorded session and add to the discussion boards.
Let us know if there is something in particular you want us to address or topics and technologies you might want to learn about.
Hi Jonathan - Hope you are having a good time at NSTA and if you didn't stop by the NSDL booth please do and get your MSP2 grocery tote!
We are using this NING network as a place where educators can connect with each other (through answers to profile questions and the advanced Members search) and also as a way to connect educators with exemplary resources and professional development opportunities.
If you look on the Main page - you'll see MSP2 resources in the upper left hand box - we have resource guides where we have sifted and sorted and contextualized resources on topics important to middle school math and science teachers, an archive of all of our past webinars, the ability to search the MSP2 collection, and pages of teacher opportunities and grants.
We have have on the right side of the page our two project blogs - Resources for Math and Science and Connecting News. We also RSS feed the Teach Engineering blog and two NYT blog feeds.
You can see a list of all the MSP2 events and others that we think would be of interest to our audience under the Events tab. Next week there is a webinar specifically for math teachers. We have groups - including a book club - and lots of conversations!
Please don't hesitate to post a question or comment. We are always looking for feedback and new ideas for PD opportunities and people who would like to present. So glad you joined - Kim
