We are in Silver Spring,Maryland, the Discovery Communications headquarters, for the 2006 National Discovery Educator Network Institute. Our two representatives from the North Texas & Oklahoma DEN are Vicki Hart, Keller ISD, Region 11, and Donna Hill, Amarillo ISD, Region 16. They are just a little excited (really I should say A LOT!!!) about being in our nation’s capital to be with almost 40 other Discovery Educators from all over the United States. We heard some nice welcome speeches from Coni Rechner and Ron Reed, both VP’s for Discovery Education, this morning. We are getting ready to learn more about podcasting from Steve Dembo. Tonight, we are off for a moonlight tour of D.C. We will take many pictures to share later!
