Part of Discovery Education’s stated mission is “to identify, encourage, and promote the most effective use of technology in classrooms and schools.” And to that end, they’ve assembled the Discovery Education Speakers Bureau, a collection of experts in the world of Web 2.0 who are available for live seminars and workshops in your school or district.
Speakers on the Discovery roster include Shanika Hope, PhD (pictured, right), Vice President of Curriculum, Instruction & Assessment for Discovery Education; Kathy Schrock, renowned “educational technologist”; Steve Dembo, a pioneer in the field of educational social networking; popular education blogger and digital learning consultant Dean Shareski; and Cindy Moss, Director of Global STEM Initiatives for Discovery Education.
The topics covered by these experts are varied, but the bottom line is clear: 21st Century students are different, in the way they think, learn and engage, largely because they’ve come of age amid informational technology that would have been considered science fiction only a generation ago.
You recognize the challenge, and so does Discovery Education. Check out the Speakers Bureau today.
