With the Fall Virtual Conference coming up later this month (Saturday October 23 for 6 hours of non-stop professional development!), its time to take a look at some of the webinars being hosted by Discovery Education. You can log into your DE Streaming account and find the entire list by clicking on the DEN link at the top of the page. But here are a few I found particularly interesting.
DE Streaming 101, October 11, 7 PM EST. This is a great place to start if you are new to DE Streaming. This webinar will be a whirlwind of information about searches, classrooms, builders, and Web 2.0 integration.
Making Multimedia Magic, October 13, 7 PM EST. This webinar will take you through the basics of Glogster. Glogster is one of the most versatile and fun multimedia sites your kids will find. With the education login, it is unblocked at your school as well!
Protein Powders. Energy Drinks. Steriods. Are These Concerns In Your School? October 14, 7 PM EST. Discovery has partnered with the US Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) to bring you this powerful webinar about the nutritional habits of your students as well as how sports can impact their lives.
Flippin’ Out With Hall Davidson, October 19, 7 PM EST. Join the premiere multimedia / gadget/ guru as Hall takes us on an excursion to find many of the ways you can use flip cameras in your classroom!
As always, these webinars (and all the rest listed in your DEN site) are totally free. You will need a phone or skype to call in to the toll-free number in order to hear the presenters. Everything else takes place in your web browser!
