Weekly Update: April 7, 2006

Hi, all.  I hope April is treating you well.  Personally, I kicked it off with a trip to Chicago to Delaware to Harrisburg and am minutes away from going to Philly.  But, I couldn’t leave you update-free…

Upload Resources and WIN!
One of the biggest goals right now for the DEN worldwide (yes, we have a DEN in Australia now if you haven’t noticed), is to get as many quality resources uploaded to the Discovery Educator website as possible. We will be announcing the promotion very soon but if you want to get a head start, visit the site and upload a resource or two or three.

Prizes will be given to all Discovery Educators who upload at least two resources by June.  And, I can’t disclose anything specific yet, but there are also some really BIG prizes that will be awarded to several extra lucky Discovery Educators.  Stay tuned!

Discovery Partners with Google Earth
A formal partnership has been arranged between Discovery and Google to integrate streaming video of historic sites and other spots around the world through Google Earth software.  Google Discovery Education for more details or check out today’s Washington Post. 

Have a great weekend and send someone a monk-e-mail.
