Fall Virtual Conference 2010

Wow! The fall virtual conference was absolutely amazing!!  It all started at 6am at a Tim Horton’s in North Battleford where colleagues and myself met with Karen Goldman, DEN Account Manager for Canada.  We were so very happy to have Karen visit our school and staff after winning the Canadian Membership Drive contest.  We got to the school for 7:30am and immediately logged into the Webinex to catch Gail Lovely’s presentation.  All of the presentations can be seen here.  The staff were absolutely blown away by each presentation. They were jotting down url’s, chatting it up with people in the chat box, and asking a lot of questions about the information presented. The staff also had a great time with the costume contest!  We went with face masks of DE staff and Discovery Channel television personalities.  You can see our picture here.  One staff member even dressed the rest of the part as Mike Rowe from Discovery Channel’s Dirty Jobs.  You can see her picture here.  Thanks for an amazing day and for hosting a stellar Conference.  I look forward to the next one!!
