Registration and Breakfast: 8:30-9:00am

Workshop 1: 9:00 am – 11:30 am
Digital Natives & Discovery Education streaming Overview
As educators, how do we engage our students who, in a matter of minutes, can watch a video, text a friend, and have a conversation with another – all at the same time? See examples of how Discovery Education streaming and video-on-demand can (and should) engage and teach a new generation of students. We’ll cover the basics as well as explore what DE streaming has to offer beyond its thousands of videos. The live demonstration will include basic searching, streaming, downloading, and best practices to give you the tools to integrate media into the classroom. Open to beginner and intermediate users of DE streaming.

Lunch: 11:30-12:30pm

Workshop 2: 12:30- 3:00 pm
Discovery Digital Video Editing: Lights, Camera, Action!
Swimming with Sharks

Today’s media libraries can transform a viewer into a creator, using media as a gateway for evaluation, online learning, and 24/7 teachable moments! We will demonstrate where to find engaging digital media and then learn how to make our own movies with Windows Movie Maker & Adobe Premier Elements. Learn how to take editable video from Discovery Education streaming and your own video to put your students in the movie.
