Wow! Wiapahu Intermediate School, Oahu, HI

To those of us from the mainland Hawaii is a paradise.  Students and teachers at Waipahu Intermediate School are accustomed to their beautiful island.  Waipahu Intermediate School has their own star with Erin Yagi.  Not only is Ms. Yagi a Teacher of the Year, but she is a gracious host and innovative teacher.  With two days of Discovery Streaming most of the teachers were able to have an initial presentation on DE Streaming for different subject areas.  The first day teachers learned the basics of Streaming.  On the second day students were able to ‘take off’ with Discovery Streaming. 

Waipahu students were studying the history of Hawaii and enthusiastically researched information about King Kamehameha, animals and other information from around the world.  Some students were able to begin PhotoStory projects using information, pictures and other data from Discovery Streaming.
