DEN SCIcon 2010 in Knoxville

Discovery Education is sponsoring a virtual science-themed conference on Saturday, January 9.  In our usual fashion, we are offering a “live” presentation of the conference that will include all of the virtual workshops as well as several live breakout sessions that will help you implement the new science standards (and other curricula, too!).

DEN SCIcon 2010 is an online conference (with a twist) focused on providing participants with some of the most effective strategies for transforming their science classes through the meaningful and effective integration of digital media content.  Join thousands of educators from around the world for an amazing day of professional development sessions, networking and sharing.

The virtual workshops are listed below.  Live workshops are yet to be announced.
