Too cool

Einstein Dear DENs,

It never ceases to amaze me how much I’ve learned since I’ve joined the DEN. My previous supervisor, Cheryl Stepp and I always had a running joke that I was learning more than I ever wanted to know!  Now at Discovery, it’s become exponential. I’ve learned about blogs, wikis, furls (still don’t quite get what those are), podcasting, Photo Story, Google Earth and now this cool feature.  Click on Einstein to see what he has to say about the DEN. Thanks Lance for posting this on your blog and to Kim Smith for showing it to Lance.

As always, I am
Ubiquitously yours,

    Thanks Karen….the Einstein website is very cool. The Uncle Sam picture is perfect for the reading page of my website.

    Karen (and fellow DEN members),
    you CAN understand furls! It’s not that bad! I learned this from DEN, so it’s time to share!

    When you are using your web browser (such as Internet Explorer or Firefox), you would find a favorite web site and bookmark the website on your favorites in the menu bar, right? Well, Furls are like portable bookmarks! No longer are you ‘stuck’ to one machine. You log into to make an account. Then, instead of saving your cool new website to your favorites (on the hard drive of -1- machine), save it to furl. When you are ar another computer, you can access your favorites on the furl. It’s easy, It’s portable. Well, you could say it helps make your favorite websites “ubiquitous!” How’s that for being a good student?

    Wow, Bob. I get it now. I can furl! I love the DEN. It’s amazing how teachers helping teachers really makes a difference. Thanks for teaching me to furl!

    Karen, I noticed that you have linked to the Opal broadcasts (including some from the Library of Congress). I recently discovered these too and wanted to share. I invited students to attend two recent ones that were about Lincoln and it was a great experience. Thanks to technology, middle and high school students were interacting live with the curator from the Lincoln Library as he showed them curios from the Lincoln collection. How terrific is technology! These are all archived on podcast too. If you haven’t tried OPAL – check it out –
