This summer, Discovery Educators from all over the Northeast have the opportunity to apply to attend a 5-day regional institute at the Freedoms Foundation at Valley Forge, PA. The regional institute will be a great opportunity for Discovery Educators to learn new ways to integrate technology into their instructional practices as well as share their own ideas with colleagues from all over the Northeast.
We are really excited to have Will Richardson, world-renowned author, blogger and educator, as a keynote speaker during our regional institute.
During the five days, Discovery Educators will:
• engage in a full day of moviemaking that includes a tour of Valley Forge National Park
• participate in a series of hands-on workshops
• apply their new skills and knowledge to enhance a unit or lesson they will teach during the coming school year
• share their work with each other
• experience many fun surprises in store for them
The regional institute will start on the evening of Sunday, June 25th and conclude on Thursday, June 29th at noon. The Discovery Educator Network will cover the cost of lodging and specified meals during the regional institute. Participants will be responsible for travel expenses to and from the regional institute.
States included in the regional institute in Valley Forge, PA are:
CT, DE, MA, MD, ME, NH, NJ, NY, PA, RI, VA, VT, WV
If you are a Discovery Educator in one of those states, apply today!
