Administrator’s Day of Discovery in Silver Spring, MD: Registration Now Open


Discovery Education is pleased to present the 2011 Administrator’s Day of Discovery at Discovery Education’s World Headquarters in Silver Spring, MD on May 6, 2011. This event has been specifically designed for area Administrators including: Building Administrators; District Administrators; District Personnel; and Curriculum Coordinators and Supervisors, and it will be framed by the following essential questions:

  1. How can digital content and tools from Discovery Education be leveraged to meet the needs of educators while increasing student achievement and transforming 21st century students into self-directed learners?
  2. As administrators, how do you facilitate the shift from students as consumers to students as producers?

We are excited to announce that Dr. Jack Dale, Superintendent of Fairfax County Public Schools, will be our featured speaker. Dr. Dale will start the day by sharing his vision for educational technology and how Fairfax County Public Schools is making the digital shift and embracing digital media and technology to reach 21st century learners.

Following Dr. Dale’s opening presentation, Hall Davidson, Director of Global Learning Initiatives for the Discovery Educator Network, will deliver his keynote presentation: Taking Leadership in the Digital Age: Linking Engagement, Assessment, and Achievement.

The presentations delivered by Dr. Jack Dale and Hall Davidson will frame the day.  From there, Administrators will be able to participate in concurrent sessions delivered by Discovery Education’s team and local STAR Discovery Educator’s.

    I’m trying to get in touch with Dr. Jocelyn Chadwick. She was my sponsor when I did a Post Doc Study at Harvard about 10 years ago. I lost contact after I completed my study. Please pass my information to her. Thank you so much.
