Cedar Rapids Day of Discovery

Welcome Cedar Rapids

 

 

Back from an amazing two days in Cedar Rapids, IA. A huge thank you to Ann Nicholson and Jerry Cochrane for allowing Discovery Education come in and for hosting the event. We had 40 educators attend three workshops; the first one starting at 8:30 AM and the last ending at 7:00 PM. Educators that attended learned 50 ways to integrate Discovery Education streaming and how to use the assignment, quiz and writing prompt builders found in the Teacher Center of Discovery Education streaming. Everyone that attended was also given the opportunity to become a STAR Discovery Educator.

If you missed the event or attended and are looking for the handouts, just look below to find the presentations.

Step-by-Step Become a DEN STAR Educator

The documents above have everything except the movie files, just too big to upload here. I encourage anyone that attended to become a STAR Discovery Educator. Follow the steps in the above document and then spread the word. You’ll get a great STAR Discovery Educator baseball jersey if you get another educator to join. If you need help in explaining the DEN or simply have a large group that would like to know more, send them to batting practice. Well, sort-of. I host two webinars every Tuesday. It’s a quick, less than 30 minute, Discovery Educator Network overview. Click here for times and registration information.

Another thank you to everyone that attended. I can’t wait to return in the fall or before. Get a lot of STARs in your school and I’ll come out to do a workshop just for you.
