DENapalooza Denver - Learn more about Discovery Education

DENapalooza Denver

Littleton uses Discovery Streaming and Discovery Techbook K-12.  This professional development opportunity is a great way to learn more about the online resources that we all have access to.  Read more about DENapalooza and how you can participate.


Discovery Education, provider of DEstreaming, is proud to bring the DENapalooza Tour back to Colorado on Saturday, May 16th, 2015at Castle View High School in Castle Rock! Now in it's third year, this tour continues to bring educators together for a day of professional learning, networking, and sharing.

With a mix of presentations by STAR Discovery Educators and members of the Discovery Education team, you'll be sure to leave with new ideas and strategies you can use in your classroom immediately. This FREE learning opportunity is open to any Discovery Education user.

Colorado is a special DENapalooza tour stop! We are fortunate to have Dr. Lodge McCammon joining us to kick off the day! In his opening session, Lodge will share the idea of kinesthetic lessons and engaging our students with movement. He'll get us moving as we learn a variety of his educational songs including "El Rio Colorado" from his Fifty States Project. To learn more about Lodge and his work, visit his web site (http://lodgemccammon.com/) or search for his content within DEstreaming.

Do you use Discovery Education resources with your students? Would you like to share your experiences, project ideas or lessons with other educators? The Colorado DENapalooza team is looking for educators who would be willing to share the projects, ideas, resources, and tools they have used in their classrooms. These 45 minute sessions will be open to all educators at the DENapalooza event. If you have an idea for a formal presentation in the morning, submit your proposal here. Contact Emily Murn with any presentation questions:Emily_Murn@discovery.com If there's something you'd like to discuss during the Strategy Sharing Showcase, be sure to indicate that when you register. 

So join fellow educators for a day of connecting, collaborating and learning on May 16th from 8:30AM-2:30PM. A light breakfast, as well as lunch and PRIZES will be provided! For more information or to register, visit http://www.denapalooza.com.
