Discovery Educator Network Streamathon

I have not written here for a few weeks.  I've had some trouble with my account and have had my password reset a few times.  I think I'm back in business now!

Today was another indicator of why I love the DEN (Discovery Educator Network) so much.  The DEN hosted an all-day streamathon, with some amazing topics and presenters.  It was a great example of successful on-line professional development.  I was able to attend portions of some of the sessions throughout today’s Streamathon.  The chat rooms were lively and folks were very appreciative of the fantastic professional development offered.  The sessions will be archived for later viewing on the DEN national blog.

I posted some of the web 2.0 tools that Steve Dembo demonstrated on my district’s technology integration website.    Check them out!

Other professional development is readily available from the DEN.  Log on at http://discoveryeducation.com, and click on the Professional Development button at the top of the page. 

The Michigan DEN is planning a combination face-to-face and virtual conference in Haslett.  It will be an all-day event on October 25th.  Details will be posted in the near future on the Michigan DEN blog.
