Next week, you’ve got two fantastic webinars to participate in. The first is the latest in our Discovery Connect series, as we get you up close and personal with the executive producer of When We Left Earth: The NASA Missions. But that’s not all! We’ve added a very special guest to the roster: Shuttle veteran astronaut Eileen Collins! You and your students will get to hear from an actual Space Shuttle astronaut and ask her your questions about her experiences. Can you think of a better way to wrap up the school year? This webinar is for both teachers AND students, so gather up your classes and get ready for a truly ‘out of this world’ experience.
This webinar will be on Wednesday June 11th at 1pm Eastern. Click here to read the full details of this webinar.
I have always thought that one of the greatest benefits of students making their own videos was that they get viewed by an audience. Not only is the learning shared then, but the preparation and production value goes way up. It’s hard to generate that same amount of enthusiasm for those private transaction assignments between teacher and student that are tests and written assignments … So whether you have competed, plan to compete, or are just lurking in the wings, you can learn a lot from contest participants’ videos. From the simplest stories done with still cameras to full blown school studio productions, any class level and subject area can benefit from watching and/or creating their own cinematic mini-epics.
This webinar will take place on Tuesday, June 10th at 7 pm Eastern. Click here to register!
Cost for these two incredible webinars?? Nada! Zilch! Zippo! Nothing! Don’t you just love Discovery Education webinars?
