DEN Extra Credit Program

Denbluestar_wide_11_1 Okay Super STARs this is a great opportunity for you to shine and get some fantastic goodies along the way–This is just one of the many benefits for STAR Discovery Educators.

For the 2007 School Year, we’ll be rolling out new benefits and programs for STAR Discovery Educators. Our first new initiative is the DEN Extra Credit Program.Extracredit_2

The DEN Extra Credit program will provide STAR Discovery Educators an opportunity to earn technology for the classroom by partnering with Discovery Education on various activities. Whether writing lesson plans for existing content, or reviewing academic content of new videos, the DEN Extra Credit program will provide a wide variety of opportunities for STAR Discovery Educators to contribute their expertise to further the success of the DEN and Discovery Education as a whole.

As a reward for your efforts on each project, participating members will receive various technology products for their classroom. Depending on the size and scope of the project, these products may include wireless presentation devices, digital cameras, LCD projectors, SmartBoards and various technology packages for larger initiatives.

By joining DEN Extra Credit, you are not obligated to participate in all of the projects; we’ll simply communicate each new project and initiative to the DEN Extra Credit team and you can select the projects in which you are interested in participating. For each project, we’ll provide you with the scope, timeframe, skill sets required as well as the technology reward for the project and you can determine if you want to join that particular assignment.

To apply to join the DEN Extra Credit Program, please send an email to Debbie_baillie@discovery.com to sign up and receive further details and information on the first set of "DEN Extra Credit" assignments

    What an amazing idea to keep people updated with technology and for them to use it in the classrooms. If someone passes this up, what a mistake!!

    Thank you DEN!

    What a great way to keep encouraging the use of technology. (Very few of us have all the things on our wishlists.) How exciting. Thanks Discovery for another great opportunity!!
