  1. Ed Media, Summer School and Events

    Today I had the pleasure of meeting a bunch of teachers from Florida through DEN Member Mel Gilbert. He’s teaching a class this summer on Technology in Education and invited me out to introduce integration of unitedstreaming. Once I met many wonderful educators, showed some fun things to do with unitedstreaming and answered some questions […]

  2. DEN Camp 3

    Although I have lived in Florida for 18 years, I never knew that Fort Pierce is the Sunrise City!  How can you resist going to the beach for sunrise when you are in the Sunrise City?  On the second day of St. Lucie County’s second DEN camp, I ran over to the beach for sunrise […]

  3. Happy Birthday to DEN

    Yesterday was the Discovery Educator’s Network very first birthday!  It really is hard to believe that the DEN has only been around for a single year considering everything that we’ve accomplished together as a community.

  6. Geographically Challenged

  7. Southwest Regional Institute (Allen, TX)

    I thoroughly enjoyed the past few days getting to know Discovery Educators from Arkansas, Oklahoma and Texas.  We began our journey together with some fun at the Main Event and afterwards had a great meal while listening to Hall Davidson discuss the power of digital stories.  Tuesday morning, we all had time to collect media […]
