I’m at the DEN Leadership Council Institute in Boston this week with 75 other amazing DEN leaders from across the country. This evening we participated in an AmeriDEN Idol competition. What a fun structure for learning! Each team (of approximately ten people) were given four minutes to deliver a presentation to the others… a web site, online tool, video, etc. The DEN team hammed it up as American Idol judges, role-playing as Randy, Paula, Ellen, and Simon. All the links have been added to this MultiURL page. Check them out!
I think this model of professional development is a great idea that is easily replicatable. I’m going to take the idea back to my district for sure.
