- DEN pre-conference event in cooperation with Animal Planet Summer Adventure! – Over 40 DEN members from across the country will be attending this full day event on Sunday, June 24, 2007. Bus transportation will be provided. (Pick up 8AM at the OMNI CNN Hotel ~ Return by 5PM so we are back in time for the evening NECC keynote). Additional details will follow via email.
- Monday Evening DEN Dinner – On June 25, we will end the first full day of the conference by networking with over 80 DEN members from across the nation. Come celebrate the DEN’s second birthday from 7-11PM at:
229 Peachtree Street Northeast
Atlanta, GA 30303
- Get your DEN Shirts – If you are attending either the pre-conference or DEN dinner, we have ordered you two Discovery Educator Network polo shirts for NECC. We are asking everyone to wear the light blue shirt Monday and the green one Tuesday. If you are attending the pre-conference, you will receive your shirts there. If not, you can pick them up in the lobby of the OMNI CNN Hotel Sunday night from 8PM-10PM. I will be the one on the comfy couch next to the big box of shirts!
- Discovery Education Booth – Visit the Discovery Education Booth (booth #424). We will be hosting a full lineup of sessions exploring ways educators across the country are integrating digital media into their teaching. We are also excited to share with you new additions to the Discovery Education family of products and services: Discovery Education One Place, Discovery Education Science Connection, and Discovery Education ThinkLink Assessment.
- Want to Volunteer? – In the past, we have had several requests from Discovery Educators to spend some time in the Discovery Education booth during conferences. This year, we also received requests from some of our major partners, such as ISTE and InFocus, to have Discovery Educators share their knowledge and expertise. Therefore, if you would like to donate some of your conference time to speak with other educators about how you integrate digital media in your classroom, sign up here (password is "discovery"). A little added incentive, anyone volunteering will receive a full Planet Earth DVD set for their personnel enjoyment.
I look forward to NECC and hope to see you there!
