Do you like:
- getting free educational resources?
- growing your PLN and connecting with inspiring educators?
- attending useful PD like virtual conferences from your couch (for free)?
- access to lesson plans and common core resources?
Discovery Educator's Network (DEN) is a really great online resource that I recently found out about. If you use any of their products (like United Streaming) than you are eligible to join.
I'm really looking forward to their upcoming Fall Virtcon, and their are constantly things going on. This week they have 7 webinars!
I recently became a STAR Discovery educator (this is the more active position of the DEN), and look what came for me in the mail today:
Things included in my free welcome pack: Acrylic STAR (this thing looks so cool!), USB Hub, Pin & Sticker, Lanyard, Luggage Tag and trading cards. The trading cards have the contact info of a few other STARs (like their website & twitter handle).
I've got a training kit ordered as well, which comes with a bunch of free stuff for my co-workers if they come to a brief meeting about DEN.
If you are looking for more ways to connect, or you want a leadership role in your school than I would highly recommend checking out Discovery Educator Network! I know I could use a lot more help in the upcoming months with transitioning to Common Core, and I will be relying on DEN to help me out. See ya there!
