LEXINGTON, S.C. — Three Lexington One teachers will begin the school year with several new ideas for incorporating technology and digital content in classrooms thanks to the 2015 Discovery Educator Network Summer Institute.
Discovery Education selected Carolina Springs Elementary Technology Integration Specialist Kristin Magee, Carolina Springs Middle Social Studies Teacher Kelly Cagle and Lexington Elementary Technology Integration Specialist Suzanne Brooks to take part in the weeklong professional development experience held last month at American University in Washington, D.C.
“Kelly, Kristin and Suzanne’s selection for DENSI demonstrates their outstanding leadership and commitment to using the most innovative tools and methods to enhance students’ learning and classroom experiences,” said Lance Rougeux, vice president of learning communities and innovation for Discovery Education.
Brooks, Cagle and Magee joined more than 120 educators from across the country for interactive seminars and hands-on workshops designed to help teachers create authentic digital learning environments that engage students and improve achievement.
Teachers also heard about the latest trends in education from leading experts and spent time collaborating and sharing best practices with their peers.
