BUT I DO HAVE GREAT STUFF TO TELL YOU!
Let’s start with Discovery Educator Abroad. Claudia Novak, a New England Star DEN Member, is about to take a trip to China. While there, she has agreed to share her experience on the Discovery Educator Abroad site. Your students will have a chance to interact with her while she’s there. Read Dawn’s blog for more about Claudia’s trip. (I have a prize to randomly give away for commenting on this particular blog.)
How many of you went to Joe Brennan’s EdTechConnect last week? For those of you not familiar with the EdTechConnect Series, they are webinars with outstanding educators on hot topics. Last year we had Kathy Shrock, Alan November, and Steve Dembo. We just found out the rest of this year’s Ed Tech Connect sessions.
The first is October 18th with Star Discovery Educator Carol Anne Maguire. She will be sharing her experiences with Rock Our World, an international project involving 18 countries spanning the entire globe. Students and teachers come together to learn about each other through podcasting, movie making, and face-to-face video conferencing.
The last one slated is another great blogger, Will Richardson. Some of you may remember meeting him at our special DEN Dinner at FETC last year where we got to meet the National Blog winners. (Tom Turner will not remember this since he stood us up for some other dinner.) Will Richardson also wrote a great book that I would strongly recommend.
Don’t forget we have our Atlas party on Saturday. Very important date for so many reasons. :-). I’ve got prizes and I’m working on my CPS game right now.
