    Topic: Bridging Literacy and Digital Media
    Description: Promoting literacy in the classroom is no longer JUST part of the reading lesson. The importance of developing the literate learner falls on all educators and is taught during all lessons. This is often referred to as the instructional shifts needed to effectively implement the Common Core State Standards in ELA/Literacy. In this session we will explore DE resources and literacy tools that can enhance the development of many types of literacy regardless of subject or grade level.

    What the Research Tells Us about the DEN
    Researchers from the Harvard Graduate School of Education reviewed the Discovery Educator Network to determine how the DEN has impacted educators’ professional development and their use of technology in their work. Their research demonstrates that connecting educators to their most valuable resource - each other - has a true impact on the quality and efficacy of their teaching.
    90% of respondents in the study indicate that participation in the DEN has tremendously or very much supported their professional growth.
    97% of respondents indicated that the DEN improved and increased their use of technology.
    Over half of respondents reported that the DEN helped them overcome challenges related to technology use at work.
