The Discovery Education Community wishes you a happy back-to-school season.
It’s been a busy summer at Discovery Education, and we’re excited to share a number of exciting updates!
Updated STAR process
A new DEN STAR process will be announced in a few weeks. While we’re making these changes, you are not able to report your events or encourage your colleagues to apply for STAR status. More updates coming soon. Until the switch is complete, join conversations in the online community (see below).
DEN Online community
A brand new online community was launched to connect you with other Discovery Educators. In the “DEN” you’ll be able to have conversations, attend live events, access resources, and even earn badges for participation in community programs. Don’t miss out: join today and start to build your profile.
Here’s how to get started:
o Log in to your Discovery Education account as you normally do.
o Click on the DEN button in the expandable side navigation menu on the left.
o Enter your name and email address in order to register for the DEN Online Community. (We promise you’ll only need to do this once.)
o Any time you want to connect to the community, just click the DEN button in the navigation menu for direct access to community conversations and resources.
o To learn more or share this information with your colleagues, access the DEN Online Community Professional Learning Toolkit
New Features and Resources
Discovery Education got a face-lift this summer! You have a number of new features and resources, like the Professional Learning Spotlight, Trending Resources, and New Content. Keep up-to-date and learn about back-to-school changes, strategies, and resources by joining the DEN Connect conversation every Tuesday.
