Discovery Education Invites Educators to Participate in Free Day of Discovery Tour


Discovery Education, a provider of digital content and professional development for K–12 classrooms, invites administrators and educators across North America to participate in the Day of Discovery Tour, which kicks off April 29.

A series of free, full-day professional development opportunities, the Day of Discovery Tour is designed to help teachers and administrators learn more about integrating digital content into their curricula, provide opportunities for participants to share strategies that are working and connect attendees to their most valuable resource — each other.

This year’s Day of Discovery Tour will commence with two simultaneous events in Columbia, SC and Chicago, IL. Attendees can expect a day full of networking sessions, interactive demonstrations, open discussions and opportunities to learn from other education leaders’ testimonials and experiences. The tour will make additional stops from May through November in Columbia, TN; Salisbury, NC; Garland, TX; Stockton, CA; Surrey, British Columbia; Marana, AZ; and Rochester, NY.

“Discovery Education’s Day of Discovery Tour is a great chance for educators to learn new skills and techniques for integrating technology and digital content into classroom instruction,” said Dana Johnston, an instructional coach at Orange Unified School District in Southern California, in a statement. “I look forward to attending my local Day of Discovery each year because it inspires me to find new, innovative ways to engage my students in learning.”  

The Day of Discovery Tour is organized by the Discovery Education Community, a global community of education professionals that connects members across school systems and around the world. The community leverages a blend of social media, virtual conferences and in-person events to foster networking, idea sharing and inspiration among participants.
