Happy Teacher Appreciation Week: Day 4

STAR Discovery Educator We have two special treats for our STARs today.  First, we have a whole new series of DEN badges for you to proudly display on your blogs, wikis, email signatures, etc.  Just visit the DEN badges page, find the one you like, copy the code and off you go.

Discovery Educator NetworkThere’s even a special one for DEN Leadership Council members.  If you really like this badge, become part of a DEN LC.  You have until Friday, May 15 to express interest in staying active with your current LC, joining an existing LC or starting a new LC.  Self-nominate today!

pollNow for our second treat.  Our friends at PollEverywhere – one of Mr. Dembo’s favorite Web 2.0 apps – have donated three individual teacher accounts (valued at $129 each).  These accounts allow you to have up to 35 participants per poll, see individual results, include text moderation and more.

Discovery Educator NetworkAll you have to do is post a comment to this blog post telling us three words that describe the DEN.  And in case you’re stuck on that third word, my middle name is Matthew.  Have fun and we’ll announce the winners at 6 PM EDT.

Happy Teacher Appreciation Thursday!

Our winners for today are:

  • Ron Houtman
  • Lee Kolbert
  • Katie Knapp

Congratulations!

    But if I stayed with the Matthew reference. . . it means “Gift of God” so the three words could be “Gift of gods” referring to the three people pictured at the top of the page. . . the DEN gods 🙂
