About Us


The North Carolina Leadership Council launched the NC DEN Blog on May 9th, 2008.  Each member of the fantastic Blogging Team  is a DEN STAR Educator.

The Discovery Educator Network (DEN) is a global community of educators passionate about teaching with digital media, sharing resources, collaborating, and networking. With over 25,000 members providing professional development to over 250,000 educators worldwide, the DEN connects teachers both on-line and in-person. Discovery Educators have exclusive access to a wide range of resources, professional development activities, networking opportunities, exclusive Discovery Educator events and more!
