About Discovery Education’s Fall VirtCon
The 2017 Fall VirtCon provides a unique, no-cost opportunity for educators at all levels to improve their teaching practice and gain inspiration through stimulating presentations and interesting conversations about building digital learning environments with their colleagues around the globe. In addition to providing new perspectives and insight on issues important to today’s educators, VirtCon offers participants the opportunity to connect with their colleagues, share ideas and instructional tools, and discover new digital resources they can immediately integrate into teaching and learning. Last year, approximately 3,000 educators participated in the Fall VirtCon.
While the 2017 Fall VirtCon includes a variety of engaging online presentations and sessions, it also features a number of ongoing discussions, facilitated by Discovery Education Community members and the expert Discovery Education staff, on timely education topics, including:

In addition to these sessions, Discovery Education’s team of experts will also take 2017 Fall VirtCon participants on an in-depth tour of Discovery Education Studio, the new suite of content creation tools recently added to Discovery Education Streaming. Empowering the next generation of content creators, Studio provides students everything they need to design, build, and collaborate on projects in real-time. Studio includes a variety of innovative features, including tools that help students formulate online, multiple-page portfolios, as well as digital spaces in which students can safely and easily work together with teachers and their peers on real-time virtual projects.
Studio also includes tools that help teachers develop and share lesson plans and other instructional materials with their peers, speeding up the creation process and saving valuable time. Additional teacher tools provide instant feedback on student progress, facilitate the assignment of small classroom work groups, differentiate classroom activities, and more.
We ask that you do not bring children under the age of 18 with you when you attend training presented by Region 7 ESC. Thank you for your cooperation.
