    This week we’re checking in with Dave Tchozewski, Director of Information Technology at Jenison Public Schools in Michigan. The DEN has been supporting and inspiring Dave for a number of years. “At DENSI 2014 in Nashville, I was asked to be part of DEN Speaks where I gave a 10 minute presentation on being “connected”. During that presentation, I had a slide referring to “finding your tribe”. That slide has truly summed up the impact that the DEN has had in my life. The people that are part of my tribe understand, appreciate, and support each other. Priceless!”   How do you…

These multi-faceted projects can create deeper meaning than teaching one STEAM subject in isolation.

    This year we were given the opportunity to rethink the Science Fair at our school.  In the past our Science Fair has been presentations of trifold cardboard experiments.  The value of students pursuing an area of interest and documenting their learning has never been a question in my mind but unfortunately science and discovery need to be available for all children.  Many of our children were not participating and we wanted to try to rethink our Science Fair. In addition to the trifold cardboard presentations we added the following experiences for our students. Makey Makeys Instructables…

    On March 22 the 1455 the Gutenberg Bible was printed. Johannes Gutenberg invented the first practical printing press, changing the world forever.
