Technology is Awesome…

When I did training on United Streaming earlier this year, I mentioned the DEN and recommended that folks check it out.  The DEN (Discovery Educator’s Network) is a community of educators who use digital media among other things as they integrate technology into their practice.  The DEN sponsors an annual national institute to provide additional professional development and networking opportunities for a limited number of DEN STAR members.  I am fortunate to be one of the 100 people selected this year.   I will be attending the institute this summer and hope to bring back lots of information for everyone!

Since I was notified of my acceptance, I have been reading the blogs and discussion boards at the DEN more often. (Surprised?) On my visit today, I stopped by Matt Monjan’s blog and found out about this commercial for Discovery. 

Ok.  So they are absolutely cute, and Matt’s post inspired me.  So I wrote this little ditty for you all:

It’s so obvious
For anyone to see
I’m a geeky girl
I love technology

I love Ms. Streeter (my boss); she’s very good to me
Boom de yada, Boom de yada, Boom de yada

I love my flip cam
I love Avatars
I love VoiceThreads
My blogging’s come real far

I love Web 2.0; something’s always new you know
Boom de yada, Boom de yada, Boom de yada

I love del.icio.us
And portaportal too
All my teachers should know
I love harassing you!

I really love my job even when it’s frustrating…
Boom de yada, Boom de yada, Boom de yada
Boom de yada, Boom de yada, Boom de yada
Boom de yada, Boom de yada, Boom de yada

I got to thinking that this might make a great meme about our jobs…and if I were going to tag some folks on my team I would choose Christine, Brian, and Deloris
