This fall, Discovery Education is hosting two free virtual professional development opportunities for educators and administrators - the Fourth Annual streamathon and the Fall 2009 Virtual Conference. Both events focus on how to incorporate digital content and the latest educational technologies into classroom instruction.
The Fourth Annual streamathon has been scheduled for Sept. 23, 2009, from 9 a.m. EST to 9 p.m. EST. Topics include an introduction to Discovery Education services, tips and tricks for integrating Discovery Education streaming content into science, social studies, language arts, and math curriculum, and strategies for increasing student engagement through the integration of Discovery Education's digital media into classroom activities.
In addition, educators worldwide are invited to join online and in-person on Saturday, Oct. 24, 2009, for the Fall 2009 Virtual Conference. This October's virtual conference theme is Tech or Treat. The professional development seminars scheduled for this event will focus on providing attendees an overview of how Discovery Education content can be used in conjunction with the latest educational technologies including Audacity, Glogster, Google Earth, and other Web 2.0 applications.
