This week’s Wednesday Workshop was a very informative session led by DEN Guide, Faythe Fouroux, who develops her great class website using WebBlender, an application created by the folks at Tech4Learning. Faythe showed us how easy it is to create a class website using this software. It is so easy that she changes the site with the seasons! If you’ve ever spent countless hours trying to design a website using html, you know what a big deal that is! Faythe also showed us how easy it is to use other applications from Tech4Learning to jazz up a website.
The evening was made even more special by the attendance of a representative from Tech4Learning who reminded us of the website available to DEN STAR educators to receive a free license for WebBlender! That made everyone’s day!
After the workshop, some of us wandered over to the latest (temporary) addition to the DEN HQ – a swimming pool! Complete with bar (which will serve up drinks from time to time . . . lemonade, of course!), it looks like a great place to hang out for the rest of the summer. Splashing around in our dressy clothes was fun – but I think I’m going shopping!!! See you poolside!
