eSchool News: DEN is transforming teacher development

The top story on eSchool News today is "Online communities transform teacher development" and you’ll never guess which learning community gets the top billing?

Ok, maybe you will guess it!  Our very own Discovery Educator Network.  According to eSchool News, resources like the DEN are "changing the way schools approach staff development–and changing how
educators view the concept, too."

There are numerous quotes from STAR Discovery Educator Tom Turner, technology specialist in Kissimmee Florida.  "That’s truly what [the DEN] is–a network of teachers collaborating, sharing ideas,
sharing things that work, sharing professional development opportunities, and
just sharing themselves."

There’s plenty more, so read the article for yourself.

    I’m surprised at the turn around of the article coming out. I did the interview on Monday afternoon. I thought it would be near end of week at least for it to come out. I’m pretty surprised I didn’t come out sounding like a bumbling idiot.

    I’m not surprised that the DEN ranked top of the list. This network has introduced me to so many people across the country and provided valuable insight into technology and learning.

    Way to go Tom!
