One of the benefits of being a Discovery Educator Network member is having access to create your own blog, linked to your profile at the Discovery Educator Network website. These blogs are a great way to get to know fellow DEN members before an event or to keep up with them after you’ve networked at an event. Several DEN members have reported that they are successfully keeping a blog on the DEN website. Check them out:
You can create one easily by logging in, clicking on your profile, click on "my blog", and then on the left hand side there is a button that says "Authoring Console". Click there and you can then see the "ADD POST" at the top right.
Podcasting has also been of great interest lately. Thank you SC/NC Field Manager Brad Fountain for sharing these articles: http://www.eschoolnews.com/marc/showme.cfm and http://www.eschoolnews.com/news/showstoryts.cfm?Articleid=6452. Hopefully in August we’ll be setting up a webinar by the summer institute attendees on what they learned about podcasting, and using Audacity. Until then,check out the masters at blogging and podcasting: Will Richardson, David Warlick, and Steve Dembo. Who has a blog of educational interest hosted on another site? Do you know of another great blogger or podcaster? Comment below and tell us how to find it.
