Michigan Virtual/FTF Conference

What an awesome day!  The Michigan Leadership Council hosted an in-person professional development day for teachers at Haslett High School.  This was co-sponsored by Discovery Education and MACUL (Michigan Association of Computer Users for Learning).  Mike Bryant, Discovery Regional Manager, made a surprise visit.  He announced that our Michigan event had the most people registered nation-wide!

In addition to the fabulous virtual presentations, ten hands-on breakout sessions were offered.  The MI DEN Leadership Council team facilitated sessions on a variety of topics:  DiscoveryStreaming Basics, New Features of DiscoveryStreaming, Podcasting, Digital Storytelling using Photostory, Global Collaborative Projects, MovieMaker, and Screencasting with Camtasia and Jing, and Interactive Websites.  Session handouts and other resources for the hands-on sessions are posted here

Special thanks to Lisa Wickman and the technical staff at Haslett High School. 

The virtual presentations are now available for viewing!
