DEN SCIcon 2010

Discovery Education’s first Science conference takes place this weekend!

This Saturday, January 9th, join science educators across North America and attend SCIcon 2010. Several lucky folks may be able to attend a local event, but EVERYONE can be there virtually.

Here is just a taste of what you will find at SCIcon2010:

Change the Present, Change the Future
with Lance Rougeux

In our opening session we present our overarching theme for the day – change.

Our students are leading the green revolution and sustainability is an engaging topic for every grade level and subject area. In order to engage our students in the curriculum and prepare them to be agents of change in the future we need to constantly assess our instructional strategies and the resources we employ. Help your students change the world every day by 3 o’clock using the digital tools they love. Customized placemarks in Google Earth and digital posters with Glogster. Virtual labs about alternative energy sources and digital storytelling projects with a green screen. You’ll learn a new idea for every day of the week.
