  1. Take the Lead! Join a DEN Leadership Council

    We’re looking for a few good DEN (sorry, couldn’t resist)! Seriously, the DEN has doubled in size since last year and this amazing growth has a lot to do with our incredible DEN Leadership Councils.  We are in awe of the work they have volunteered to do to make the DEN community what it is […]

  2. One Day, Two Great Events!

  3. Lights, Camera, Publish!

    On Tuesday, April 14th at 7 EDT (since I’m sure you’ve all got your taxes finished and those refunds in the bank) you can drop in on my last Makin’ Movies webinar of the school year, Lights, Camera, Publish! and see ways to share your videos and learn from others. We’ll take a look at […]

  4. Discovery Student Adventure 2009

  6. Save the Date! – April 24th

    Yes, I know it’s a Friday — not a typical ‘Wednesday Workshop’ announcement, but then again, this isn’t a workshop type of event. Oh no…this is much, MUCH, bigger!  It’s the official ribbon-cutting ceremony for the new DEN in SL Headquarters.  Many of you have been with us when we were in a simple ‘cookie […]

  7. ISTE – Digital Photography in the K–5 Classroom

    Digital cameras can be used to engage and empower learners, but many of you may wonder how you can use this technology in your classrooms. Learn how digital cameras can be used to help students observe, conceptualize, share, and communicate with the world around them.

  8. Discovery Education's Science Class

    Now that I’m trolling the DEN blogs with more frequency, I found a gem that’s been out there for a while that I just discovered because of Mogulus. (Guess it’s true that film catches our eye faster than text). Anyone who knows me understands that I am truly math-and-science challenged, so my propensity is to […]

  11. Gentle Reminder – April 15th

    And NO…I’m NOT here to remind you that midnight on the 15th is the deadline to file those income tax returns!  Instead, I’m reminding you to come on into SL and join us at the DEN in SL on Wednesday, April 15, for “Taxman Cometh: But Not In Second Life!” – an opportunity to relax, […]
