Here is a short message from Lance Rougeux, Vice President of Learning Communities at Discovery Education.
Teacher Appreciation Week is here and the DEN is in the giving spirit. We’d like to simply say thank you for your hard work and everything you are doing for your students. We can’t begin to express how much we appreciate you, but we do want to say thanks and share a few tokens of appreciation this week to help show how valuable you are to us.
The first gift this week comes courtesy of our friends at Narrable. STAR Discovery Educators get a free Classroom account for a year! Narrable is a creative tool for students to combine images and their own voice narrations into rich stories based on what they’ve learned in class and experienced in life.
In addition to our friends at Narrable providing the free Classroom account, they have created some support opportunities to help you get the most out of your new account. Watch this video below explaining how to use Narrable with images from Discovery Education. Also, as part of this exclusive Teacher Appreciation Week offer, the fine folks at Narrable will work to schedule a time to connect with you via Google Hangout or phone to help get you started. You couldn’t ask for more!
As a STAR Discovery Educator, we hope you enjoy your FREE one year Classroom Narrable account.
