Educators widely<br />recognize that the quality of preparation in middle school often determines whether our young people will succeed in high school and beyond. <br />What district and school policies and practices are linked to higher student performance in the middle grades (in the U.S.)? To find out, a research team led by EdSource spent 18 months conducting the most extensive study ever of middle grades. http://www.edsource.org/middle-grades-study.html<br /><ul><li>The Middle School Portal 2: Math and Science Pathways (MSP2) project supports middle</li></ul>grades educators with high-quality, standards-based resources and promotes collaboration and knowledge-sharing among its users. Educators use MSP2 to increase content knowledge in science, mathematics, and appropriate pedagogy for youth ages 10 to 15. MSP2 employs social networking and digital tools to foster dynamic experiences that promote creation, modification, and sharing of resources, facilitate professional development, and support the integration of technology into practice.<br />http://www.msteacher2.org/<br /><ul><li>The National STEM Distributed Learning (NSDL) http://nsdl.org program is a national network dedicated to</li></ul>advancing STEM  teaching and learning for all learners in both formal and informal settings. NSDL advances STEM teaching and learning by providing:<br />High quality, interactive resources that help our nation's educators bring cutting-edge, real-world science into their classrooms and stimulate excitement for science in today's digital learners<br />Web-based applications that help teachers and learners to optimize their experiences with digital content<br />Professional learning opportunities for college faculty, K12 teachers, and other science educators<br />Software tools and services to help school districts, museums, educational non-profits and otehr digital learning enterprises to organize, manage, and disseminate digital educational content<br />Research-based findings and best practices on teaching and learning with digital content<br />Partnerships with STEM stakeholder groups, organizations, and coalitions that promote the dissemination of STEM educational technology use and digital content expertise <br /><ul><li>Digital Tools for Teachers' Toolboxes. More than 2,000 teachers were recently surveyed about </li></ul>the Web 2.0 tools that they and their students most commonly used. This presentation provides a hands-on introduction to these tools along with teacher-created and student-created examples. http://clifmims.wetpaint.com/page/Teacher+Toolbox <br />
