One hot summer, one cool opportunity!
The Navajo County Educational Services Agency (ESA) has arranged for a 30 passenger wi-fi bus to tour Northern AZ for four days. Educator/passengers will will stop at sites from Kayenta to Whiteriver for PD presentations based on content targeting AZ Social Studies standards. During the ride, prepared educational videos will be broadcast to continue the learning. Hotel stops, speakers and food have been arranged. Sliding scale plans for participation have been published. Participating educators will be able to earn re-certification hours. Hot and hotter!
Arizona celebrates its Centennial Birthday in 2012 and this trip will focus on the geographic, geologic and social history of our own backyard. The trip will be documented on video cameras allowing the participants to collaborate on their technology skills.
April Weston, an active DEN Star and LC member has coordinated this event and reported a number of private cars want to follow the bus with their families! Stories and photos from the adventure will be posted here.
