Wish You Were Here
Just as those lucky DEN STARS meeting at the DEN National Institute in Berkeley, CA are probably thinking – wish you all could be here. Those same sentiments echoed loudly on the deck of the cruise ship Sensation when DEN STAR Cruisers embarked upon their learning journey on the high seas July 14-17. Wish you could’ve been here, too.
National leaders in educational technology collaborated with 40 educators from across the USA on a variety of projects in addition to teaching us the latest and greatest tech. tricks and treats. By the end of the institute, we had created classroom ready multimedia projects, learned new ways to incorporate digital storytelling into our classroom lessons and heard briefings on the newest online technologies used by today’s tech-savvy generation. Take time to read the previous blog posts to learn more exciting details and ways you can use what we learned at the National Institute in your classroom. The blogs are an invaluable source of training, tips, techniques in a teacher’s quest to keep up with the ever changing face of technology integration.
I can honestly say I’ve never worked so hard and had so much fun at the same time. We all left the institute with new friends, great ideas, and a fresh focus as a new school year looms on the horizon. Go DEN!
