DEN at NECC 2009...I was there!

I'm glad I didn't miss today's DEN's pre-NECC Birthday Party Extravaganza, "I learned a lot of cool stuff!" is an understatement! Many DEN STARs from across the country came to DC early for the 2009 NECC just to attend DEN’s fourth birthday celebration at Discovery Headquarters today.

Here are my favorite presentations from Jen Dorman:

According to her, there's a need to connect with colleagues both within the educational system and worldwide. The solution? Tap into professional networks and harness social networks for professional learning.

All about blogs, vlogs, and glogs!!! I am already proficient with blogs, and pretty familiar with using vlogs. What's new? Glogs! Glogs are like online interactive multimedia posters, which can be published publically or privately, and can also be emailed. It's so cool, colorful and creative that my students will surely become addicted to once I introduce this to them!

I also went to the session by Steve Dembo and loved his presentation: Top Ten Free Web 2.0 Sites. But the URL I have is a broken link and I can't find his presentation in his blog.

NECC is just under a few days away, and we hope you’re as jazzed for it as we are! Our home on the conference floor will be Booth #3228 and we’ve got a packed schedule there. You’ll be able to see presentations such as:
  • Discovery the Possibilities with Discovery Educaiton Digital Services
  • Multimedia Einsteins: Discovery Education Science
  • Using Multimedia in the Classroom with Mimio
  • 50 Ways To Use Discovery Education streaming
  • Bring 21st Century Teaching to Your Classrooms: Professional Development that Works
  • Connecting Formative Assessment to the Power of Digital Media
And who will be presenting these sessions? None other than your favorite DE and DEN presenters, including Hall Davidson, Lance Rougeux, Steve Dembo, Matt Monjan, Jen Dorman, Eren Koont, Alex Morrison, and more!

Don’t forget though, that’s just a fraction of what we’re doing at NECC. Be sure to attend the special Using Multimedia in the Classroom session we’re hosting with Mimio and the four DEN spotlight sessions.

Look forward to seeing you at the conference!
