Okay, please forgive the cheesy reference in the title of this blog, but with the opening of football season just 1 day away, I’ve got football on the brain!
Did you know Discovery Education offers FREE half-day staff development opportunities called Digital Connections? These workshops are a combination of online instruction and hands-on experience. Discovery Education certified instructors can tailor their presentation to meet the needs of your curriculum, and better yet, your teachers will leave this session with an actual project created with unitedstreaming video and images!
Recent Digital Connections have focused on:
* Developing integrated thematic units and Webquests for a Middle School Language Arts curriculum
* Using Google Earth to map wildlife migration with Elementary Science teachers
* Creating digital portfolio projects for high school students
It’s easy to set up a Digital Connection for your school. Just call your Implementation Representative at 800-323-9084 to schedule a workshop, reserve a room in your school with internet-connected computers, a speakerphone and an LCD projector or TV screen, and talk with your Discovery Education instructor to adapt a Digital Connection workshop to the curriculum needs of your group. It is that simple, and better yet, it is FREE!
Have you already held a Digital Connection at your school? What did you think? Let us know!
