DENSCIcon - free online/live professional development this coming Saturday
Discovery Education is an excellent resource for educators. They have great fee-based products (Streaming, Assessment, Science and more) and over 30 free resources available for educators. The Discovery Educator Network is also a great resource for educators where they can connect with other educators and share resources and information. They also provide excellent, free, professional development through out the year. These sessions are held online and there are in-person events to coincide with the online program.
The 3rd Annual DEN SCIcon will be held this coming Saturday, January 28th. The DEN SCIcon provides participants with effective strategies for transforming science classes through effective integration of digital media content. The conference is live and online so you can join in from home. There are also in-person events around the country, hosted by the local DEN Leadership Council (made up of educators). See below for more in person events. It is all FREE.
You must register whether attending online, or an in-person event.
The agenda is listed below and you can register for the online sessions here: http://links.discoveryeducation.com/scicon2012
This is a great opportunity to gain some great ideas and resources for free. I've participated for the last two years and it was well worth the time.
