Michigan DEN Virtual Conference

What an awesome day!  I just returned home after attending the conference at Doherty Elementary School in West Bloomfield.  The day was a blend of virtual and face-to-face professional development sessions.  Kudos to Cindy Carson, who hosted the event at her school, and facilitated the day, making sure the presenters had what they needed, the food was ordered and delivered on time, door prizes were available to attendees, and other "behind-the-scenes" duties were taken care of. Thanks to MI Leadership Council members Eric Strommer, Cheryl Lykowski, and Pam Shoemaker for facilitating breakout sessions.  The opportunity for attendees to ask questions and work with each other was a bonus to attending the conference in person. The virtual keynotes and breakout sessions will soon be posted to the Discovery session archive page.  I plan to watch the sessions I did not attend, as I heard they were great! Web 2.0 tools that I plan to also check out sometime soon are posted on Alan Levine's 50 Ways Wiki.

    It was great! I did not make the trip, but spent the entire time online listening to the sessions. The chats were fun to watch as those of us who were virtual chatted amongst ourselves. They are fabulous presenters. We need to get more teachers involved.

    What an awesome day! Thank you Cheryl, Eric and Pam. It was great to get some new ideas and meet new people, both virtually and in person. I look forward to spending more time looking for ideas on the Den blog and being a Star Discovery Educator one day soon.
