iLCD — Wisconsin DEN Promotional Event
The Discovery Educator Network is an active community of users collaborating with other educators who love to integrate unitedstreaming digital media in the classroom. The best way for each of the 170+ Wisconsin DEN members to be ACTIVE and enrich the experiences of his/her colleagues is to share expertise, ideas and insights through teaching colleagues how to integrate and utilize unitedstreaming in their classroom.
Have you held any training sessions at your school? If so, did you remember to email me with the details of your session (date, place, number and full names of attendees, any feedback or input) and send a copy of your Sign-In sheet? Every training session that you do with three people or more is reported weekly along with my own trainings so please ALWAYS report your trainings!
It’s not too late to report trainings that you have done this school year (just email me with the details noted above)! BUT… ONLY the trainings held Tuesday, May 23 through Friday, June 23 will count for this promotion! This promotion is also synchronized with the launch of the new DEN web portal (version 3.0) which will make its debut on June 5, 2006. Everyone will be excited to learn about the new features of unitedstreaming and you can help share the excitement by leading a session for several teams of educators.
Here is your chance to schedule several training events during the next FOUR weeks – May 23-June 23. This is a great opportunity for you to be an ACTIVE and INVOLVED WI DEN Member and ALSO earn the opportunity to be entered into a drawing for one of the most valued pieces of technology equipment– an INFOCUS X2 LCD Projector!

4) You may hold this session at school or in the comfort of your home or even a wireless coffee shop! J
5) Your training may be a DEMO of unitedstreaming OR can be an integration workshop session.

6) Each training is worth points.
Each 1 hour event with a minimum of 3 people = 5 points
Each point = one raffle ticket!
n Extra points are not given for more people in attendance to keep the logistics simple and allow for small group sessions to be valued.
n You may do multiple sessions for the same people but each hour long session must be on a different topic or focus area relating to use of unitedstreaming or integration of video or images from unitedstreaming.
n The best way to gain points is to hold multiple sessions with DIFFERENT attendees!
