Our experience hosting the Virtual Conference was rewarding because it exemplified the types of teaching and learning opportunities we're fostering and supporting locally. Not only did we get to learn about exciting new and existing resources, but we did so via a medium that connects people and ideas that extend beyond those within our physical boundaries. We believe it's our professional responsibility to share and discuss what's possible and are grateful for the Discovery Education Network for its efforts to help teachers and students everywhere.
