The 2019 DEN Summer Institute was held July 15 through 19 at Weber State University in Ogden, Utah. Featuring a number of interactive seminars and hands-on workshops, the 2019 DENSI was designed to support educators as they combine the latest technologies and digital content to create authentic digital learning environments that engage students and improve achievement. In addition, the 2019 DENSI provided an opportunity for participants to connect, collaborate and share resources, ideas and strategies for integrating the latest technologies and digital content into classroom instruction.
"Rob’s selection for DENSI demonstrates his outstanding leadership and commitment to using the latest technologies and innovative teaching strategies and techniques to improve student achievement,” said Lance Rougeux, vice president of learning communities and innovation for Discovery Education. "His participation in DENSI 2019 will help increase student engagement across the Pattonville School District and support their district’s effort to prepare all learners with the critical skills they need to succeed beyond the classroom.”
