Today was another full day of learning at the DEN Leadership Council Symposium 2010. We started our day with an inspirational presentation by Chris Dede, the Timothy E. Wirth Professor in Learning Technologies at Harvard. Here’s a link to his presentation.

Fingers were flying with notes being taken. If you posted a blog about Chris Dede’s presentation, share the link in the comments for others.
After Dr. Dede’s presentation, the LC members divided into focus groups and provided feedback and ideas for future development of Discovery Education tools. We sure do appreciate the feedback from teachers who use DE in their classrooms.

Currently, teams are sharing favorite tools with one another as part of AmeriDEN Idol. Here are some of the tools the teams shared:
