Every week we would like to focus on issues related to education in Illinois, DEN issues, Discovery products and their uses, and general use of technology in our schools. We would love to encourage guest bloggers from all of our DEN members. If you would like to post to our IL blog, please send me an email and I will get it posted very quickly for you – firstname.lastname@example.org. A post this week comes to us from our fellow council member Roberta.
Roberta sent out an email to DEN members asking for DEN member input and I thought it would be a great post to our blog. Thank you Roberta for letting me post your email.
… I am hosting a PLANET EARTH PARTY at my school on Tuesday evening. I have printed invitations, will be serving refreshments (those on the web site) and broadcasting the webinar. If you are looking for an event this may be a good one.
I am still looking at the calendar for a summer workshop at Lincoln New Salem in Petersubrg and The State Capital in Springfield. I do know it will be in the summer (probably June as the National Insititue is in July). I would like to do it the week of June 18-22. I am only thinking of two days but we could do one if we want to really cram sites and such.
What do you think? Please give me some feedback so that I can plan. In the past the IL DEN had a large number of members. Have all of them been contacted and told that we are up again? Is there a way for teachers to join the den? What do they need to do?
Roberta has two main questions that I think are pertinent. One, what are DEN members planning in regards to Discovery Events to keep our Star status? Two, what can we do to promote the DEN reopening to former members?
The possibilities are endless because of this great network and we can all learn something from each other. Great email Roberta…
