2011 DEN SCIcon

Normally on Saturday mornings you will find me ‘in’ Elluminate co-hosting the ‘Classroom 2.0 LIVE!’ webinars. We have canceled our show this Saturday, January 22, 2010 in support of the 2011 DEN SCIcon. We invite and encourage everyone to attend the SCIcon instead.

The DEN SCIcon is hosted by Discovery Education and is a free virtual conference with sessions featuring strategies for science instruction. One of the sessions will be with Reed Timmer, Extreme Meterologist and TVN Team Leader, for the Discovery Channel series ‘Stormchasers’.

The Discovery Education Network (DEN) team created a flyer advertising the conference in the event that you would like to download, print and post for your colleagues. I have attended several of the virtual conferences hosted by the DEN and they are top notch with great tips for using technology in the classroom. You don’t have to have a subscription for the Discovery Streaming to attend or learn useful strategies for the classroom.
