Cool meeting today - let's pick the next book and do it again! I will try to get some local people to participate, as well. My one friend who read and liked Omnivore's Dilemma is defending her PhD tomorrow, so she wasn't available, hehe. Thank you…

Hi Maria - I did add the Math 2.0 event to the MSP2 calendar. I'll plan on adding it each week. Kim

Hi Maria - I will add the Math 2.0 weekly event. I found the page (and signed up) that describes the weekly event but I don't see the agenda/URL for the Elluminate room (http://mathfuture.wikispaces.com/Math+2.0+Activities) for August 19 - do you have that ready?

It would be great if you could disseminate information about our MSP2 (when appropriate) to you group. I could always add it - just want to be sure where you would want me to add it to your wiki space.

Talk to you soon - Kim

Maria - I knew you looked familiar! We need to add the Web 2.0 Math webinars to our events calendar - I'll go ahead and do that.

I don't know of a similar network for high school - although they are probably out there. If I hear of something, I'll send you an email.

Again - thanks for joining. Kim

Hi Maria - So glad you joined the MSP2 network.

I wanted to point out that we've got lots of resources for middle school math and science teachers - look at the left side of the Main page - Math and Science Resource Guides, Diigo lists, and project blogs where we highlight lots of exemplary online math and science resources.

We've had two Tech Talks so far - one on Interactive Notebooks and one on Moodle in the Middle. You can get to the recordings of those by clicking on the Webinar Archive link. I see you have signed up for the Digital Storytelling webinar - Jessica will do a really great job.

Your picture is really familiar - did you do a webinar for Steve Hargadon on Learn Central?

Any ideas or feedback you have would be greatly appreciated! Welcome – Kim
