This program will launch in August.
BETA site - http://www.denconnects.com/
- Get students on DE (Discovery Education)
- Model for teachers that we have more than just video
- Great instructional strategies
First part of the projects is a scavenger hunt for kids. Goes along with the calendar.
Citizenship is the "theme."
Second, the mini lessons.
There is one resource they highlight and then you get a lesson to do with your kids.
Third, Web 2.0 collaboration tools. (September is Voicethread)
Lastly, DEN chatter (connecting with another class)
It's structured and linear and easy to use.
