Community Update

Discussed in this week’s update:

    • A brand new DEN STAR process is coming soon! Be sure you’re ready- set up your profile in the DEN Community. Log in to Discovery Education and select Discovery Educator Network (DEN) from the left-side tool bar. Follow the prompts to complete your set up and join conversations happening now. If your profile is complete when we launch the new program in a few weeks, you’ll automatically be added to the group and awarded a new DEN STAR badge and access to resources.
      • If you’re not yet a DEN STAR, we’ll be sharing the new process very soon and we look forward to having you join us!
    • Check out the Professional Learning Center (PLC), in the Learn and Lead section for instructions on accessing our new Interactive Learning Courses.  You’ll need to have created your profile in the DEN Online Community in order to take a course, but upon completion you’ll receive a printable certificate that can be submitted for professional development credit as well as an interactive badge which will connect you with other educators who have taken that same course.
    • Winter Events:
      • There are professional learning webinars happening throughout the month to provide you with integration ideas, updates on our services and ways to use Discovery Education resources with your students.  Check out DESTEMCHAT the last Wednesday of each month.
      • Ignite Your Passion for Discovery is a powerful evening of short, energizing presentations combined with networking and engaging conversations. This is the fourth season Discovery Education has hosted these events across the country. This year’s sub-theme is, “Surprisingly Awesome: Shining Light and Finding Joy in the Ordinary.”

      • For more upcoming events, access the Event Calendar.
    • Be sure to visit the DEN Online Community for the conversations happening in the discussion threads, but also don’t miss the library- filled with items shared by fellow Discovery Educators.
    • And speaking of the DEN Online Community, clues for the location of DENSI 2018 were released a full day earlier in the online community!  You can watch our video for the big reveal on Discovery Education’s Facebook page or in DEN Friends in the online community.  More information including application dates coming soon!
    • As always, we’ll leave you with a little #DENspiration
