aMAYzing Opportunities

DEN has outdone itself again, ending an amazing month with a stacked lineup of opportunities for its STARS. May 26 pitches a double-header: our last webinar of the school year, and the first-ever DENny Awards. We all know a STAR who has gone above and beyond for the DEN, or maybe we never forget to read a special STAR’s blog–every day. Why not take two minutes to recognize those STARs by completing the nomination form today. It’s due May 25, so you have today and tomorrow to nominate a fellow STAR. Then, on May 26, when we talk about all things DEN, we’ll also recognize some STARS who have shined extra brightly this year. Don’t forget to click here to register for our end-of-school-year webinar too.

The last Geocaching 101 webinar for the first-ever DEN National Geocaching Day is May 27 at 7 pm ET. You can register here to join one of our DEN geocaching experts as you get the basics of a tech-savvy treasure hunt. Check out the DEN National blog for resources and a list of a STAR Tech-Trek near you. And then, while you’re at it, join a group and have a great time, DENs way of saying thank you for a great year.  My first experience with geocaching was with Bridget Belardi after her presentation at DEN LC National Summer Institute last year.  I admit I was just a bit skeptical; it was hot and did I want to go on a techno-treasure hunt.  Let me tell you it is the most fun ever, so if you are just a tad like me and are wondering…just do it.  You’ll love it.  Promise.

Our good friends at Teach4Learning gave DEN STARS a great tool, Frames 4, during National DEN Teacher Appreciation Week. Now they have graciously offered us a webinar to teach us some tips and tricks using Frames. Join us this Friday, May 29 at 4:30 ET.

Learn how students can use the integrated drawing tools in Frames to illustrate their own stories, tell digital stories, and create animated Flash® movies.

To wrap a great month, DEN ends with its first-ever National Geocaching Day on May 30. Don’t forget to check the national blog for STARS who are leading geocaching in their states.
