Working Draft - Edit, then copy/paste where needed...

Notes for PETE&C 2009 pre-conference workshop:
  • use ASCD DVD as needed (need to have in/out points listed)
  • indicate DI strategies used for the workshop in the wiki with directions
  • want to group by interest (via poll) and by random (using random number generator)
  • set up checks for understanding -- use DI online test after Explorer intro (if we have Explorers, if not, after workshop intro, then before lunch)
  • have participants create a wiki page to share their project work; comment in discussion for each page
