FREE: TECH or TREAT Virtual Conference

This sounds fun and it's free! On Saturday, October 22, 2011, the Discovery Education Network is offering a virtual conference: DEN TECH or TREAT a Fall Virtual Conference. The conference, scheduled online from 8:00-2:00 Central Time, is a free professional development event for educators to learn how to effectively integrate digital media into their instructional practices. The agenda looks like it'll be a lot of fun. They'll be using Discovery Education resources and Web 2.0 applications to create mashups and there will be a heavy emphasis on digital storytelling. This is a prime example of PJPD - professional development that you can do in your jammies!

Several places in North America are offering the conference in a face-to-face setting. If you prefer to attend in person, you can go to Kirk Elementary School in Houston on the 22nd, and you can sign up here. It's still free!

If you have questions about the virtual conference or the conference in Houston, contact Ann DeBolt.
