FETC (Florida Educational Technology Conference) is my favorite conference. It is known as one of the best in the nation and is in our own state! Last year, Danielle and I were just beginining as DEN Field Managers and had the privilege of hosting the first DEN preconference event for FETC ever. It was informative and fun, but this year is even better.
On January 24th, 2007, the STAR DEN members will be experience professional development at Universal Studios! Rise and shine because we start rolling at 7:30 am and go straight through until 3 pm! We start with a behind the scenes look at the movie and ride magic. Just how do they get the Mummy to terrify you? What does a park need to know about setting? How can you recreate a tornado that will rock your world? Can make-up really turn the most beautiful creature into a thing of horror? Then we have the opportunity to work our own media productions, with the park at hand for any last minute footage. STAR DEN members who apply and are accepted will have a choice between Digital Storytelling or Enhanced Podcasting for their final projects which can be done in the park in teams or partners.
