Discovery Streaming Basics at Powell Elementary

This past Monday, June 9th, three of the members of the TN DEN Leadership Council conducted a Discovery Streaming Basics workshop at Powell Elementary in Powell, TN. We had nearly 30 in attendance, and nearly all the attendees were brand new to Discovery Streaming. It was awesome!

Since the DEN loves to eat, we began the day with some goodies from Panera. Teryl Magee introduced the workshop and presenters. Tim talked for a bit about the basics of Discovery Streaming with explanations of how to search, the types of resources available, and more. Karla spent her time quickly going over the 3 Builders and then focusing on the Quiz Builder.

Powell Elementary is equipped with a Mac lab, so everyone had a laptop to work on. The most exciting part of any training is watching the teachers in attendance working side by side, helping each other with questions, and doing what they do best….teaching.

Our thanks to all those at Powell who made this day possible. I’ve included a short slideshow below built using SlideRocket. SlideRocket is still in private beta, but when it launches it could make PowerPoint obsolete!

    Hi Tim,
    We are excited to hear that the Tennessee Den & teachers at Powell Elementary had a chance to use SlideRocket!! We hope everyone was able to take advantage of and enjoy all the great features the tool has to offer.
    One suggestion we would like to offer – under the publish settings for a presentation, click on “Make this presentation public” so that your above embedded presentation can be viewable by everyone.
