An update from the SC DEN Leadership Chair:
Hi SC DEN STARS!
I hope everyone has had a restful and productive summer. The SC DEN Leadership Council is getting excited about the upcoming school year. StreamlineSC has added DE MediaShare and DE Health to the StreamlineSC resources. These will be great additions for all teachers and students in our state. The DE Streaming site has also undergone a make-over with new search features and a new look.
These will be held this week from July 28-30. If you’re registered to attend on Tuesday, July 28, arrive early to sign up for our 3:00-4:30 pm DEN geocaching event. Space is limited. Tom Taylor will be leading everyone in a fun geocaching activity around the SCETV buildings. We will provide dessert, and Justin Karkow from Discovery will be here with prizes for the prize drawing.
Start planning now to attend the SC EdTech conference from October 14-16 in Myrtle Beach. Click here for information on registering. We will have an evening DEN event on either Oct. 14 or 15. More details to come!
Keep Your STAR Status
In order to maintain your STAR status, you must report at least two of your events for the 2008-2009 school year by August 31, 2009.
What is an Event? An event is any time you share the power of Discovery with 3 or more colleagues. Share an integration idea over lunch with your grade-level team. Demonstrate to your peers how you use a Virtual Lab in DE Science. The list is endless.
Log in to the DEN website and you’ll see “Report Event” If you are not sure of how many events you’ve reported send an inquiry to firstname.lastname@example.org. Or visit the direct link to the event report page.
