Dr. Lodge Video Challenge extended!

A Message from Dr. Lodge…

Hello DEN Community!  A number of you have contacted me and mentioned your interest in the contest, but have found it difficult to participate due to the timing.  In fact, over 500 of you have visited my Friday Institute FIZZ site to watch and download the kinesthetic lectures!

Due to some technical difficulties and our desire to allow more of you to participate in the contest, we have decided to extend the contest – the deadline for submissions is now May 4.  This means that you now have almost two more months to create, perfect, and upload your video to the contest website.

If you have any questions, please check out my recently published overview video on Discovery Education’s YouTube channel.

Good luck!

Dr. Lodge McCammon

What’s the Dr. Lodge Video Challenge?

Simply select one of Dr. Lodge McCammon’s pre-selected, standards-based songs, learn the corresponding moves from the kinesthetic lectures, film your music video in 1-take and publish it to the contest web site.  Nothing could be more fun, engaging and…educational.  Search the blogs for related posts, or go directly to the contest website.
