This is exciting! One of the best benefits of being a STAR Discovery Educator is your chance to win scholarships to conferences, which encourages you to learn something new and to network with others. Well, DEN is wanting to share T+L with all of the DEN and to help, they are looking for three STAR Discovery Educators who would like to attend and share their learning through blogs and podcasts. Here’s the deal. If you are a STAR Discovery Educator and would like to attend T+L, let Steve Dembo know by posting your name and preferred contact information as a comment to the National blog post by October 13, 2006. Three members will be chosen randomly to attend. The trip will include airfare, lodging and conference registration (meals not included).
In return, you MUST agree to share your conference experience with other DEN members by:
- Attending the T+L conference from November 7 through November 10, 2006 (including a special DEN pre-conference session on Tuesday November 7 featuring special guest Deneen Frazier Bowen).
- Post a minimum of one blog post per day while attending the conference.
- Do one podcast for the entire conference.
**Please note: if you are new to blogging or podcasting, no problem, we will have plenty of support there for you!
The three educators selected to receive the educational scholarship will be announced October 16, 2006 on the National blog. Good luck! This is how I attended the conference last year, and hopefully at least one North Florida STAR DEN member can attend it this year on the scholarship! GO NORTH FLORIDA!
