Getting The Ball Rolling and Scavenger Hunt Presentations Just Added

Just a quick post to let you know that I’ve added a couple of new presentations for you.

Many teachers and students are already in or are returning back to school.

To help introduce your new DE streaming users (or serve as a refresher) to the site,  I have created two presentations and saved them to the Bird House.

The first presentation – Getting The Ball Rolling – takes you through the steps of creating a username/password, provides a definition of a passcode, and more.

The second presentation -DE streaming Scavenger Hunt – takes you on a treasure hunt through DE streaming,  helps you create a PowerPoint presentation, and outlines the steps to becoming a DEN Star!  By completing this scavenger hunt you will be able to successfully navigate the site – I promise!

I hope that you find these two presentations helpful.

Welcome back and I wish you much success in your new school year!

Check them all out by visiting the Bird House.  As always mi Powerpoints son su Powerpoints so please feel free to use, edit, distribute, etc.!

Have a great Back to School experience.

DEN Mid-Atlantic Regional Insitute Resources!

What a great couple of days! I have really enjoyed working with each and every participant! I have especially enjoyed seeing that a-ha moment occur followed by the “You mean I can…” or “Wait that means I can…” Very cool stuff!

As we mentioned in this morning’s session, you can access the Powerpoint presentations, links to other sites and things we covered during the institute by going to the Google site that NJ DEN Star Heather Sullivan created.

You can find that page by clicking on this link: http://sites.google.com/site/denregionalinstitute2008/

Right Back At You Texas!

We finally got to complete our message after a whirlwind of activity here at the Mid-Atlantic Regional Institute in Long Branch, NJ.

We are, and you’ll see below, standing on some very famous steps at Monmouth University. Famous you ask? Famous we say. Because this is where the movie Annie was filmed. And while we have had limited internet access here, a few thunderstorms, and some might say, a bit of a hard-knock-life, we have really enjoyed our time together so far.

This morning we’re diving into a full day of projects but before we do here is our message to the Central Regional Institute’s message from yesterday:
