2010 seems like a long time ago. In technology terms, it is. Chromebooks weren’t even invented yet but now, they are becoming more and more of a staple in education. In 2010, Discovery Ed’s Dean Shareski keynoted the K12 Online Conference. As the name implies, this conference is held completely online, giving educators the opportunity to check out the sessions anytime they wanted. It’s a great concept and the conference is still going strong.
Dean’s keynote, Sharing: The Moral Imperative, is fantastic and still rings true. I encourage you to take the time to watch. In it, he tosses out many great questions centered around sharing. Is sharing what you do in your classroom an obligation? Does it benefit your students? How should teachers share? I do believe teachers should share and I’ve benefited a lot from the ideas and lessons other educators have shared. I try to do the same via social media and my blog. The Discovery Education Community is awesome at this as well. Below are more examples of educators sharing what they are doing with Discovery Education in their classrooms and schools.
Take a look at the tweets below, connect with these educators, and think about sharing what you’re doing in your classrooms and schools as well. Tweets out pictures and videos and tag @DiscoveryEd. You might just appear in next week’s Best of the Community on Twitter post!
