DEN Streamathon

Filed Under (Blogroll) by Shannon Wentworth on 23-09-2009

I was able to participate in a few of the DEN Streamathon sessions today.  Wow! A lot of great new stuff now available – new content, new contests, and soon a new DEN membership status.  Can’t wait to become a DEN Guru. 

 Gurus – STAR educators who possess expertise of one or more pedgogical topics (Differentiated Instruction, PBL, etc), have demonstrated their expertise through a variety of professional expereiences and advocate for the meaningful integration of DE content across area of expertise.  They will be promoted throughout the community as thought leaders in the educational field and have the opportunity to share their expertise in a variety of ways.  Gurus will be featured as regular contributors to the national DEN blog, featured in own DEN webinar, represent DEN at major educational conferences during the year (registration and travel expenses covered by the DEN).  Application opens on October 1. 

 I can’t wait to apply!!!

What’s in store for 09-10?

Wow, do I have a busy year ahead.  Gwynn and I will be presenting twice at ITEC in a few weeks in Coralville, Iowa.  Our first presentation will be on GoogleEarth and our second will be on supporting ELL students with technology.  We have also been approved to present again at CCIRA in February.  We have applied to present again at South Dakota TIE (Sioux Falls this year) and we will be applying to present at ISTE 2010 in Denver!!!

Plus, teaching, training, and more.  I hope my sanity and energy last through the rest of the year!!
