I’m here in Atlanta at the Southeastern Regional DEN Institute and we are having a ball! While I am from the North Florida DEN, there are participants here from South Carolina, North Carolina, Alabama, and Georgia. Danielle and the other DEN leaders have kept us extremely busy learning in learning to create new uses for digital media. We began by learning new uses for blogging and educational uses of podcasting. We have really enjoyed learning about digital storytelling and using Adobe’s Premier Elements to create digital stories.
We attended an IMAX movie on African Safaris, and visited the world’s largest aquarium– the Georgia Aquarium. Both places provided us with inspiration for our assignment here in Atlanta: creation of a digital story to be used in our classroom. Add to all of this great food, good company, collaboration with educators from a five-state area, and expert presenters to guide our way– and you have the makings of a perfect summer institute. What a wonderful way to spend a hot summer week. Pictured here is one of the many sights of our visit to the Georgia Aquarium.
