Fun Fact Friday: DEN VirtCon

Did you know that the DEN VirtCon is coming up soon? The Discovery Educator Network Fall VirtCon will be taking place on October 19th from 9am to 4pm ET. This is one of Discovery Education’s annual flagship community events, and typically has more than 2500 educators from all around the world attend!

This is a free professional development event that gives us an opportunity to support YOU, our community of educators, and help you learn about creative and effective ways to use our services, especially Discovery Education Streaming Plus, Techbook, and Progress Zone.

This unique blended virtual conference features 3 keynotes, more than 20 concurrent sessions and is 100% free to attend.  While thousands of people do attend virtually, the VirtCon is a great opportunity to host a Discovery event at your own school or district!  We provide nationally acclaimed keynotes and presenters, and you can craft your own individualized Professional Development day around it.  Some schools set up a projector and run the sessions all day.  Others display the keynotes, and then take a break to reflect, discuss and synthesize the presentation as a group.

It’s a simple event to organize because we provide the presenters, sample agendas and marketing materials.  We’d love to be your partner and help you organize your own VirtCon event.  For more information, see the attached flier or visit http://virtconlive.com/host.

For questions, please reach out to Steve Dembo (Steve_Dembo@Discovery.com).

We look forward to hearing from you!
