"This is really cool, Sean. I did a bit of work on Peer Coaching a while ago. It is such a great model for professional development I'm always really happy to hear successful implementation stories."

No student every needs to dissect anything, ever

My blood was a' boiling this morning after reading an article on edweek about an investigation done by the College Board:... can a student get the same level of experience from a virtual dissection online, without actually smelling the formaldehyde or making a cut?In recent years, the College Board, which authorizes AP classes and offers college-level material to high school students,…See More

Hello, Marjee. What have you been up to lately? I am back for a new school year and trying to reconnect with Classroom 2.0 friends.

There are 2 levels of DEN membership. The basic membership (a DEN member) requires an application and, I think, a subscription to unitedstreaming or some other Discovery product. I'm not real certain about that last part. The benefit? You get invited to lots of free training on all things tech!

The second level is a STAR DEN member. That requires an upload to Discovery of some sort of tech-related product you have created (could be a video, a PowerPoint lesson, etc...pretty easy stuff). Then, you must conduct at least 2 training sessions with a minimum of 3 people at each during the course of the year. The benefit? Lots of free subscriptions to Discovery services like unitedstreaming PLUS, Science Connection, ThinkLink, Cosmeo, etc. Also, there are Discovery sponsored trainings that you are invited to attend.

The best part is the collaboration between teachers. I've met a LOT of really sharp, dedicated teachers who have taught me tons of stuff to help my own teaching.

Here's a link where you can find out more:

Thanks!

I love PBS! There is a lot of new PBS stuff in the unitedstreaming PLUS version from Discovery. While I don't work for them, I am a STAR Discovery Educator in their Network (so the plug is free!).

PBS is the best!! Let me know if you ever need feedback from a 3rd grade teacher and mother of 4.

About Me
I am the Director of Digital Media at National Geographic's The JASON Project. I direct the design and production of video games that address core middle school science curriculum. Our games are free so check them out! You can start by going to: http://www.jason.org/PublicPage/Curriculum/CoasterCreator.aspx

I am also completing my PhD in Instructional Technology and Educational Research Methods at George Mason University.


PAST
I'm an instructional designer at PBS. Before joining PBS I researched games and education with the GAPPS (now GLS) group at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. While there I co-chaired the Games, Learning, and Society Conference. I also worked as a digital archivist for a project with the National Science Digital Library.
Prior to that, I was a high school chemistry and physics teacher and have taught science education methods at the graduate and undergraduate level.
