November Updates – VIDEO

I am becoming such a techno-nerd!  I made a video cast (if that’s what you call it) of some updates for all of you STAR Discovery Educators.  Instead of reading some emails….you can now watch a 4 minute video narrated by yours-truly about some of the opportunities/promotions available to you!  Download this and let me know what you think!  In addition, here are a few things to keep in mind.

    That is pretty cool just getting to listen to your little movie file.. got my mind thinking!!!! :)

  2. Dana Kauk

    I appreciate these opportunities Discovery is giving us and thanks for the lab coat. I wasn’t expecting it. What a nice surprise.

  3. Shannon Gaumer

    Very cool video cast! You did a wonderful job summarizing all the promotions the DEN has to offer for STAR members…I am going to point my STAR members to you site to check it out!! Thanks Michelle

  4. Karen Law

    Cool little video…Gave me an idea to put instructions and daily announcements in one…better yet, have a student produce it. DEN always gives me good ideas. Thanks for the Lab coat, now as a history teacher, I can blend in with my science neighbors (or maybe “infiltrate”!)

  5. Linda Michael

    I enjoyed listening to the video. It’s nice to be reminded of the opportunities provided by the DEN. Thanks!

  6. Jean Thorpe

    Wonderful! I enjoyed this quick and informative update on all the currently running DEN programs and initiatives. Very helpful. Thanks.

  7. Michelle Krill

    I love the initial slide in the video. I like being able to hear and see the information. Nice job!

  8. Karen Seddon

    I love your video cast, Michelle. It was so nice to listen to have great the DEN is and not just read about it. The files opened so easily, too! Great job. When I grow up, I want to be Michelle Weeks!
