DE Summer School: #TBT DENSI

We’d like to dedicate this #ThrowbackThursday to Discovery Education’s most epic PD event of the year! DENSI.

In 2006, Discovery Education began holding summer institutes to connect educators with their most valuable resource… each other! Since then, hundreds of educators from around the globe have continued connecting at regional and national events throughout the year, but the best part is that learning is not confined to just those attending in-person.  Over the past few years, the DEN has live streamed several sessions out to the community.

It’s only been a few short weeks since we’ve all returned home from #DENSI2014, but STARs from around the globe are continuing to share their reflections. There were so many great sessions to choose from, but we wanted to take this opportunity to highlight DEN STAR and Guru Tim Childers (@tchilders) popular presentation titled “Teaching with Just One Image”  They say a picture is worth a thousand words. In this session we will look at various ways a single image can be the focus of an entire lesson. Using Discovery Streaming images and others, we will discuss various strategies and tools used to focus the lesson around a single image. After watching, search Discovery Education for an image and take our SOS Image Integration Challenge.
