DEN Camp in Osceola County

Osceola_den_campFifteen ladies and Lance make for a great DEN Camp in Osceola County this week! Discovery Education and Osceola County School District have teamed up tLanceo sponsor Advanced DEN Camp.  These teachers have committed to create a Unit Plan for their classrooms for the 2006-2007 school year.  We are encouraging them to join with our other Discovery Educators at the Southeast Regional Event in Atlanta to "Create Masterpieces."Creating_masterpieces  I read them Peter Reynolds wonderful story of encouragement called "Dot."  If you haven’t had a chance to read it yet, go to Peter’s website, Fablevision, and check it out.Dot

Lance took the ladies on a tour of 50 Ways to Use unitedstreaming and even showed them a mini lesson on Movie Maker.  I learned a really cool thing today when Lance was showing the calendar.  Today, June 19th is Juneteenth, the celebration of the end of slavery.  I never knew that and I was especially surprised because it’s my birthday and I just never saw that before.  Yeah unitedstreaming!

Bobbi In the afternoon, Bobbi Kocher, Instructional Technology Specialist, gave us an expert tour into the depths of Photo Story and shared some incredible educational uses for Photo Story. She has created the most amazing manual in regular teacher language. PhotoStory3.pdf  Thanks so much, Bobbi, for sharing your expertise with us.

    Reading about all the things happening at the DEN camp in Osceola County and seeing all of the pictures sort of makes me feel as if I’m in the wrong place. The regional event has been a wonderful experience and I’m definitely glad I participated in it but I’m sure the Osceola Camp is exciting and fun as usual.
