Thanksgiving and Black Friday, either virtual or real, are behind us and Discovery Education’s December is packed with some pre-holiday goodies with a series of great webinars. If you ever created a wish list of favorite webinars you wished Discovery would reprise, update, or just run again, at the top of my holiday list is the first webinar out the gate. Our tech guru and Elfster, Steve Dembo welcomes in the December series with my all-time favorite, and you can bet I’ll be giving my students extra credit for attending.
And the list just keeps getting better, followed by our own inimical Hall Davidson.

EdTechConnect with Gail Lovely
In this session we will explore online tools and the powerful ways they can be used to engage young students in learning environments and activities. The emphasis will be on collaboration and curriculum integration. Web 2.0 tools, more traditional Internet sites and a little classroom and lab management will be added to the mix. Come with questions, curiosity and a thirst for learning – leave with excitement, ideas, links, tools and more!
