The Discovery Educator Network’s FETC preconference unitedstreaming Spring Training at TECO was a hit! No amount of planning, room decorating or list making can compare to the joy of an event full of happy teachers! Over 80 educators and 15 Discovery Team members enjoyed a morning of training and and afternoon of sharing on unitedstreaming, Discovery Health Connection, Cosmeo and the Discovery Educator Network. Danielle Abernethy has super details on her blog for your enjoyment. The breakouts were professionally fun and the teachers told endless stories of what they learned and how much they appreicated the day. Most of the teachers even gave up their Spring break to be a part of this professional development day. During the afternoon sharing, the DEN team broke out with the Cracker Jack Attack to make sure everyone was still into our Spring Training theme and having fun.
On Thursday and Friday in the Discovery Booth, our very own Carole Gooden and Debbie Bohanan presented their expertise on unitedstreaming. Debbie not only showed the teachers how to edit unitedstreaming clips with iMovie, but actually created a video during the presentation with the teachers and edited it right there for them! What a pioneer. One of the most exciting announcements came from Matt Monjan, one of our Florida Implementation reps to a crowd of 200+ educators.

Danielle and I are most grateful to the teachers who came and made connections with other educators across the state and Southeastern US. We are also grateful for the tremedously talented DEN team who pulled everything together for us.
As always, I am
