Discovery Education Network

The Discovery Educator Network is a free web resource for educators to share resources, ideas, and lesson plans.

This week, September 10 - 14, 2012, the Discovery Educator Network is having an open house to share its resources.

Check out the details below for details and more information.

Help us kick off the school year with DEN Back-to-School Week. September 10-14, we’ve got a great schedule of activities to help you share the DEN and even learn more yourself about the community. In addition to daily blog posts about a variety of topics, we have a few special webinars and Google Hangouts scheduled. This is a great chance for you to grab a colleague and introduce them to the DEN.
