DEN Connects




This program will launch in August.
BETA site - http://www.denconnects.com/
Goals - 
  • 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.
