Podcasting, Benefits and more

The DEN PodcastDembo

I’m starting to get into this podcasting thing. I know Putnam enjoyed their day with Steve Dembo and others have been getting into it as well.Putnampod How many of you have been listening to the Discovery Educator Network Podcast? What are your thoughts so far?

Podcast20logoThe next Podcast is up and running. You can learn all about it on the Discovery National Blog. It’s pretty interesting and it deals with a new series found on unitedstreaming.

STAR Discovery Benefit

The benefits of being a STAR Discovery Educator just keep getting better and better. Irpad_2_1Have you heard about the latest benefit? I always wanted one of these when I was a technology coach, and now I finally got my own set. I’m talking about the eInstruction clickers that let you create quizzes, games, questions on the fly, take attendance and so much more. They are fun to use, and you can use them with unitedstreaming video and images. Learn more about these incredible tools by watching this great video. Through this partnership, you can purchase the CPS IR 32-pad system from eInstruction at an incredible price of $995(plus shipping.)  This is a discount of over 50% from eInstruction’s base pricing of $1995!

There is still time to get the projector at the great STAR price.

FETC

Don’t forget to send me pictures for our FETC Dinner. There’s still time to apply for the Pre-Conference event! Are you from another state and reading this? Come join us! We’d love to have you apply for one of our out of state spots at the Pre-Conference. Our dinner on Thursday night is also a great opportunity to network with great DEN Members from all over!

Events

Have you held a Learning Adds Up Event lately? I had the pleasure of working with Joanne Hayes this week at Sea World, a Lunch and Learn and a LAU Tea Party (I think most of us got smoothies though).  Those events count. Send them to me.

Also a challenge – Since the North Florida team just loves to comment, I have a commenting challenge for you. The prize is extra special and of limited edition! There is a blog about Learning Adds Up. Hard to find, since it’s not linked on the right hand side of this blog. Anyway, Stephen Wakefield is looking for some great blogs and comments about Learning Adds Up. Go leave a comment to show him that North Florida ROCKS when it comes to commenting and you’ll have a chance to win a great prize. You only need to leave one comment for your chance to win. (This is a really cool prize ~ with the new logo on it.)

DEN Promotion

Still time to get your information in for the Fall DEN Promotion. I’m thinking a sweatshirt would be perfect for some of these mornings we have been having. Nice and nippy down here.

Poster Contest

How are those entries coming for the Poster Contest? Those posters were a hit last year and I am so ready for the next generation. Would love to say a Florida Student won!

    Danielle, I was at the Putnam County workshop sponsored by United Streaming. It was terrific. The training I received reinforced some previous (lost) learning and gave me some great new ideas and resources. I just wish I had had time to go to all of the workshops. Thank you so much. What a terrific asset for Putnam County.

    WOW – things are really happening! Trying to keep up with unitedstreaming is exciting. There is always something for everyone! Thanks

    That EInstruction looks so good. My intern Kellie Coleman saw it demonstrated a couple of weeks ago at a seminar and fell in love with it. Wouldn’t it be neat if our dividends from Learning Ads Up could be used to purchase the system.
