Maximizing Student Engagement with Discovery Education

Maximizing Student Engagement with Discovery Education

Learn how to put the power of Discovery Education streaming directly into the hands of your students. Through the use of the Student Center and Builder Tools, Discovery Education streaming is transformed from an instructional tool to an interactive world for students to be fully immersed in the process of their own learning. Learn how to create an environment for student access as well as a variety of media infused lessons, such as writing prompts and quizzes, which can be assigned directly to each individual student. In addition to direct instruction and demonstration, this session will provide time for participants to explore each tool, learn its functionality and begin to create their own media rich lessons.

Date:  March 31st 
Time:  9:00-3:00
Location:  Thomas Poe Professional Development Center - Region 6 ESC
Session: #171975       
Please register by noon Friday, March 27th.
