This spring our district participated in the DEN Ambassador program. In the Verona Area School District we are very fortunate to have leadership that supports technology integration as well as collaboration between educators. Betty Wottreng, our district technology leader, immediately supported the program.
The program consists of three face to face meetings where resources and ways to implement those resources are shared. Rita Mortenson, Kurt Knueve, Frank Devereaux, and myself teamed up with 20 educators from our district to learn about ways to use Discovery Education in our learning and teaching.
In addition to three great face to face meetings, participants connected to educators around the country on Edmodo. Betty provided each participant with an awesome sweatshirt as well as pizza on the last night. Check out DEN Ambassadors if you want to bring a quality experience to your school or district while learning about how to effectively integrate technology and Discovery Education into your learning community!
