Discovery Education, CECA, and Meriden Public Schools are pleased to present:
CECA Pre-Conference Day of Discovery
Designed specifically for Connecticut-area educators, this interactive day of free professional development will highlight creative ways to engage students and invigorate your curriculum using the latest 21st century tools. Whether you are new to Discovery Education or a long-time user in search of the latest instructional strategies, this event has something for everyone!
Our featured presenter at the Day of Discovery is Dr. Lodge McCammon. Lodge McCammon is a Specialist in Curriculum and Contemporary Media at the Friday Institute for Educational Innovation (www.fi.ncsu.edu). He finished a Ph.D. from North Carolina State University in 2008 where his work at The Friday Institute continues to bring innovative practices to students, teachers and schools. He developed a teaching and professional development process called FIZZ which encourages and models best practices in implementing user-generated video and online publishing in the classroom to enhance standards-based lessons. He is also a studio composer who writes standards-based songs, with supporting materials, about advanced curriculum for K-12 classrooms. More information, user-generated videos, and songs can be found at Lodge’s website (www.iamlodge.com).
