What a week! We have been thrilled with the amount of STARs who have celebrated with us over the past five days. Just in case you missed any of our special promotions for the community you have until Sunday to continue the celebration. Here is a summary of DEN Teacher Appreciation Week benefits for STARs.
Monday – one-year access to Prezi Educator Pro Account.
If you haven’t tried Prezi, here’s your STAR opportunity to embrace Steve Dembo‘s favorite presentation tool. I remember his first presentation, and was so awed with the non-linear way in which Prezi works (and Steve too).
Tuesday – extended access to the Discovery Education suite. If you loved the LIFE series, you and your students now have access to the complete series in Discoverystreaming Plus. For this gift alone the Discovery suite is a HUGE bonus. Add to it DE Science for Middle School and DE Health for a 90 day trial. What a fantastic way to end the school year with wonderful resources, and a chance to explore them fully over the summer.
Wednesday – special offers from LabelDaddy and prizes from Tech4Learning.
A year ago I won a LabelDaddy during DEN’s Teacher Education Week. It’s a great tool and I can attest that both my professional and personal life is labeled. Join me in labeling your life. Fun tool.
Wish I could tell you I have experiemented with iFrames –haven’t– but it’s my next new tool, and summer’s coming.
Thursday – 90-day trial to the Premium version of EDU Glogster. If you haven’t tried Glogster, what are you waiting for. Get your Glog on, and start working with one of the most intuitive and interesting tools out there. My students just made a Glogster for their independent reading book for Quarter 4. Their job: make a movie poster. They loved it. Really fine educational tool, and thank you Traci Blazoski for getting me to try it during one of your webinars.
Friday – special offers from AllKidsCrafts and iaPeel. One of the innumerable benefits of being a STAR is the opportunity to try new products as a result of DEs partnerships. Don’t forget to check the videos and information on the DEN blog (just click the link) about these 2 cool tools.
Whenever I count my blessings and take personal inventory of the wonderful learning opportunities that being a STAR or GURU offers, I give thanks for the true teacher appreciation that we receive from the DEN. Special thanks to Lance Rougeux and his team and partners who worked to make this week very special indeed! We appreciate YOU!
