2011 Beyond the Textbook Day of Discovery
Saturday, May 7, 2011 from 8:15 AM to 3:30 PM (EDT)
New York, NY
You're invited to join us as we move "Beyond the Textbook" at
the 2011 Day of Discovery at Discovery Education's World Headquarters
in Silver Spring, Maryland on May 7th.
This event will provide area educators with an exciting and enriching day of professional development focused on creative ways to engage twenty-first century learners using digital media and technology.
We’re excited to announce that Matt Monjan will be keynoting this event.
KEYNOTE: Consumer to Creator - The Student as Both the Learner and the Teacher
Not only does today’s student want to be engaged through technology, media, and conversations at the same time, they also want to be able to instantly share their own content, ideas, and creativity with their peers and, in fact, the world. Our students have progressed beyond consumers of content to become producers and publishers. How do we, as educators, teach to someone who is technically proficient, and social media-minded? During this session we’ll explore different avenues in which the traditional model of learning is replaced with a challenge that requires students to draw on prior learning, acquire new knowledge, and tap their creativity to fashion solutions.
This exciting conference style day of professional development will give you the opportunity to choose from multiple concurrent sessions, earn a certificate for participation, win prizes, and network with nationally recognized K-12 experts.

All registered attendees are invited to an exclusive screening of Polar Bear: Spy on the Ice sponsored by Discovery Student Adventures immediately following the event from 3:30 - 4:00 PM.
Polar Bears: Spy on the Ice will focus on the journey of a polar bear mother and cub.
With global warming and the ever-changing landscape of the Arctic, these cubs will be living in a vastly different world than their parents. The film uses a unique spy-camera technology, allowing the film-makers to capture polar bear behavior rarely seen before in the summer season. Drift-cams, Blizzard-cams and Iceberg-cams give viewers and humorous and intimate look into the polar bears world.
We look forwarding to seeing you there!
