We have finalized the plans for a June “Day of Discovery” at Woodland Middle School (thanks to Principal Fizer and her staff) in Brentwood, TN on Friday, June 20th. Our Day of Discovery is being held in conjunction with the Tennessee Association of Middle Schools (TAMS) state conference at the Cool Springs Marriott. TAMS has over 400 educators pre-registered for their event on Saturday and Sunday. We have room for 60 or more at our free event on Friday!
You don’t have to be a member of TAMS to attend the Day of Discovery. This workshop is open to elementary, middle, and high school teachers from both public and private institutions. And what an exciting day it will be!
We have Brad Fountain from the Discovery Educator Network delivering our keynote address. Brad works with the TN Leadership Council to help arrange events just like this one.
So, what will we cover? We will talk about 4 technology areas of interest to teachers in Tennessee: Digital Storytelling (for both PC and Mac), 50 Ways to use Discovery Streaming, Web 2.0 in the classroom and beyond, and Discovery Streaming basics. In addition to Brad, we will have Teryl Magee, Sally Walters, and myself providing these workshops.
The Day of Discovery will begin prompty at 10 AM and conclude at 3 PM. Lunch is provided for all attendees. And the best part? It is all free!
