5 Ways to Use Discovery Education – October Edition

Monday marked our 9th 5 Ways to Use Discovery Education webinar.  Each month we are highlighting DEN Community members as they share five unique strategies, tools, or resources for using Discovery Education in your classroom.

Brandon Wislocki & Kristen Davis kicked off the event by sharing their latest blog & video series called Get To Know Your Community. Listen in and then meet your fellow Community members by searching the blogs for this ongoing blog series.

Kyle followed this video by sharing how to find the Professional Development section of Discovery Education and showcased where to learn about the “Paper Slide” SOS strategy shared by Kristen & Brandon.
