Discovery Education Offers Training for Teachers

Digital media and science are focus of trainings Feb. 7 and 28.

Science teachers at elementary and middle school levels, as well as APS teachers at all levels can take advantage of training offered by Discovery Education next month.

The first training is a two-day event, Feb. 7 and Feb. 28, for science teachers in grades 2 through 8. Participants will get the chance to learn how to integrate literacy into science lessons using digital media and interactive writing. The second day of the training will focus on the value of scientific thinking and how to make it explicit to students.

The second training is for teachers of all grades and will focus on how to create a digital story using videos, images and sounds to create a narrative that is both engaging and informative for students.

Both training courses are free and will meet from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturdays at the APS Building at 6400 Uptown Blvd. NE. The course for science teachers is Feb. 7 and 28. The one for all teachers is Feb. 28.

To register go to the AIMS site on the APS intranet. For more information on either course, e-mail Sarah Johangiry at sarah_johangiry@discovery.com.
