DE Streaming, DE Assessment, and a Game of Pool…

I am sitting in the meeting room of the Marriott, and it is nearly time for our second day to begin.  Before we get there, however, we need to cover some important news from last night.Several of us stayed until around 10:00 EST working on projects and picking up tech tricks from one another.  Afterward, a few of us wound up around a pool table.  I teamed up with Kristi Richburg for the first game.  My plan was to play a game or two and go to bed.  Fate, on the other hand, had other plans.  We played Justin and Teryl.  After winning handily, we turned our attention to Brad and Hall.  We could not lose.  Finally, our competition had enough and decided to play fooz ball.  If not for that, Kristi and I would probably still be playing and winning this morning.  Kristi was awesome!This morning we are going to hear from Sandra Ford with Discovery Assessment.  After that, Hall Davidson is doing our keynote.  Before we go home, our participants will demonstrate their projects for the group.  Another full day of fun with the DEN!

    So what kind of project did you do? Seems I remember you playing pool at Silver Springs this summer too.

    Well…I did an hour plus presentation on DE Streaming, so I opted out of the project. Others are doing some cool lesson and unit plans that incorporate DE Streaming.
    If I were to do a project, it would be to assign a Spanish language animated video with English closed captioning to my 6th graders and ask them to edit the closed captioning so that the movie tells a completely different story.
