Check Out The Discovery Team Presentations at the Discovery Education Booth in the Exhibit Hall
The Discovery team will be facilitating presentations throughout the day on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. Stop by to learn about some terrific ways to integrate high-quality digital media into engaging 21st century lessons. Or, just stop by to tell us how you are using DE media with your students.
For those of us who are not going to NECC this year, hopefully DE will run back channels so we can attend virtually. More about that later.
