    Thanks for posting the listing of presenters and topics for FETC. I am looking forward to some “cool” adventures with the DEN members. The valuable online learning tools and resources are appreciated by the teachers at my school, as they activate prior knowledge of all our students by engagement and excitement with Discovery Education.
