Discovery Eduation and GPB at GaETC!

The 23rd Annual Georgia Educational Technology Conference will be held November 3-5, 2010, at the Georgia International Convention Center (GICC) in Atlanta, Georgia.

Discovery Education and Georgia Public Broadcasting will be exhibiting at GaETC.  We invite everyone to visit our booth and say “hello” to the folks from Discovery Education and GPB and learn about some of the exciting content updates and feature upgrades available to Georgia educators and students through GPB Digital Education.

We’d also love to welcome you at our concurrent sessions.  We’ll even have some special guests from Glogster EDU co-presenting with Patrice and Jen during the “Learning at the Edge” session.

SESSION: 1 Reaching the 21st Century Learner with GPB Digital Education and Discovery Education

Dive deep into GPB Digital Education (Discovery Education streaming) and see what you can do beyond the stream. Finding and playing video segments is one of the many ways you can use these standards-aligned media resources. But did you know that your GPB Digital Education library includes a built-in interactive atlas, thematic calendar, hundreds of writing prompts, thousands of quiz questions, and a whole lot more? This session will explore next-step integration strategies to engage student creativity, encourage higher order thinking, and reinforce essential skills and knowledge.

Move beyond static posters and PowerPoints while motivating students with an innovative fusion of standards-aligned media resources from GPB Digital Education (Discovery Education streaming) and Glogster EDU’s authentic publishing and communication platform. The presenters will explore how students are developing digital literacy, mastering curriculum objectives, and reinforcing problem solving skills by creating learning artifacts aligned to UDL principles.
