  1. It's a Wrap – Trivia Night and Seniors Project

    Well, Riptide was at his peak on Wednesday night.  His questions are becoming more and more challenging and it wasn’t simply a matter of typing like a maniac to answer the question correctly — you actually had to ‘think’! LOL  Vita and DocL both tied as the winners, with Valaina a close second.  Congrats to […]

  2. Mark Your Calendars – June Events

    Can you believe it?!?!  Tomorrow is June 1st!  I know that some of us are already on summer ‘time’ (don’t like to call it ‘vacation’ since most of us ‘work’ during the summer! LOL), others are about to, and yet others (like myself) have a WHOLE month to go before we reach that time! In […]

  3. Read a Blog, Win a Prize

    One of the blogs I follow regularly is Merl Evans’ Meryl.Net.  While she is celebrating 8 years of blogging, I’m really only celebrating several months of following! I know how much DEN members love a party, so I thought I’d mention that Meryl is throwing one.  In celebration of the last 8 years, she is […]

  4. Adoptic: Let's do some sharing

    One of the biggest challenges new bloggers face is finding an audience. It’s easy to say, “If you write it, they will come” but the reality is it just isn’t that simple. Everybody wants an audience. If you’re going to be putting the time in, you want your work to be seen. One of my […]

  7. Newest House On The Block

    Over the year’s I’ve posted PowerPoint presentations, Word Docs, and more on the streaming A-Z blog but found that they can be hard to find the more I post. So that said, I have created the Bird House page to post resources that I have created or collected from my tech friends. I’ll try to […]

  8. Planet Green and The Emerald City

    When I reflect on the year in review and Discovery Education’s impact on our lives, one word comes to mind: firsts. Discovery does it first. And better. Doesn’t matter what it is; Discovery is out there pioneering the cutting edge before the edge is cut. That’s what I love about Discovery Education. Dream it and […]

  9. Discovery Connect: When We Left Earth, The NASA Missions

    What a way to end the year, teaching and learning with our students in a national virtual premiere from Discovery Education.  And what a year it has been, with Discovery’s history making Virtual Conference in February.  Continuing to shape the future in the communications industry, Discovery Education launches the Virtual Premiere, a must-attend end-of-year-event.  Copied […]

  10. Upcoming Deadlines!

    Okay, first of all, I cannot believe it has been two weeks since I posted to this blog! It seems like when the school year starts to wind down, everything ramps up and guess what gets set aside? That’s right . . . everything we enjoy! I wanted to be sure to make everyone aware […]

  11. Discovery Connect: When We Left Earth, The NASA Missions

    We’ve got one final Discovery Connect for the 08-09 school year in us and we couldn’t be more thrilled to bring it to you as only Discovery Education can!

  16. Surfing Timelines with Dipity

    Thanks to Mike for sharing this one with me today. I’ve played around with many a Timeline creator, but this one truly seems to stand out. Dipity.com can serve as a traditional timeliner, and it will work well, but it can also become your FriendFeed with benefits. The basic view is exactly what you’d expect. […]
