Reaching the 21st century students require a higher level of technology in the teaching profession, this happens for me when I can attend the most outstanding professional growth in the nation offered through Discovery Education. Networking with teachers from all over the nation, multiple daily collaboration projects created presentations of Web 2.0 from Steve Dembo and a social tour of San Francisco with other star educators. Discovery Institutes not only prepare educators to teach but provides a powerful network base of friendships and memories for years to come.
