Discovery Education Network, NY DEN

Attention TEAM Members,

Last Friday afternoon, I attended an exciting event with the NY DEN. In case you've never heard of the DEN before, this is for you:

The Discovery Educator Network (DEN) is a global community of educators passionate about teaching with digital media, sharing resources, collaborating, and networking. With over 25,000 members providing professional development to over 250,000 educators worldwide, the DEN connects teachers both on-line and in-person. Discovery Educators have exclusive access to a wide range of resources, professional development activities, networking opportunities, exclusive Discovery Educator events and more!

The DEN is affiliated with United Streaming, a great online media source for teachers. United Streaming a super tool for teachers who have SmartBoards in their classroom. The students enjoy watching the online educational movies on the virtual SmartBoard hearth, and as a teacher, I love the content and other digital resource including: audio, images and text.

There are many perks to joining the DEN. There are more perks if you become a DEN Star Educator. One of the perks was being invited to attend a DEN event last Friday that included an IMAX movie and dinner. Visit the NY DEN blog to see the pictures.
