From Illinois STAR Lori Abrahams…
Thank you to Joe Brennan for suggesting I apply to be a DEN STAR the first year the DEN was formed after Discovery bought out United Streaming. I was an early adopter of United Streaming and then we continued with Discovery Streaming. Thank you to Steve Dembo for bringing the DEN into Second Life and giving me the opportunity to meet and learn from so many great educators for so many years. Lots of great memories in SL. Just need to concentrate on other areas today. I have loved attending Days of Discovery at the NECC’s and ISTE’s, I am thankful for the Summer Institutes I was able to attend and develop a great PLN. I’ve learned and laughed and laughed more through the years and keep learning from all my DEN family. I love the resources available in Discovery that enhance my student’s learning. Happy Thanksgiving.
This is the time of year when people share things they are thankful for. In the DEN, we are thankful for all of you – the fantastic educators who love to share, collaborate, and learn from each other. Working with you over the years has been wonderful and the DEN wouldn’t be what it is without you. There are over 5,000 STARs in the DEN and we know the community has grown over the years because people have been sharing with their colleagues and showing how great the community really is.
With that in mind, we’d love to hear your DEN story of thanks. Is there a person who got you started with the DEN? Did some of your colleagues drag you along and now you’ll never go back? Is there a great story about how you became more involved? It’s time to give a big THANKS to those that have helped you.
Post it to your blog, Tweet it #DENthanks, or just email the person. Then tell us about it.
We’ve created a brief form for you to use to give thanks and tell your #DENthanks story. We’ll be sharing these on the DEN blogs and can’t wait to hear how so many wonderful educators got involved in the DEN.
