Engaging & Inspiring Learning Everyday
Tuesday, March 22, 2022
6:30 PM – 8:30 PM ET

Exclusive to Current Discovery Education Partners!

Connect live with the Discovery Education team and educators from around the globe to share best practices on designing engaging learning experiences for your daily classroom.

Educators are engaging and inspiring others every single day in the lessons they create, relationships they build, and connections they make with other educators, their students and their communities—no matter how big or small they may seem. Through the ups and downs and sideways detours of this past year, educators never stopped innovating, advocating, or designing new ways to engage learners. Join us for an evening of inspiration with your community of educators to hear how they use Discovery Education’s compelling content to engage students in authentic and diverse ways.

Agenda at a Glance

6:30 PM – 7:00 PM ET
You All Get An F, Jed Dearybury | Sometimes educators need reminding why we do what we do. It is not just about grades, tests, homework. There’s so much more to the profession beyond the busyness of paperwork and meetings. Real teachers, who fully understand the depth of their work, get it. They know this and move mountains for their students. I know this because many of mine did for me. Hear the story of their love for me, their passion for their work, and their impact on my life as a student and educator. Finally, I got to grade them like they did me all those years. Listen carefully as I explain why they all got an F.
