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
- 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! It would be great to have a Delaware or Pennsylvania representative at this event.
