Rob Lamb, a science teacher at Pattonville High School, recently joined more than 100 fellow educators from around the world for the 2018 Discovery Educator Network Summer Institute (DENSI), an immersive, week-long professional development experience. The six-day professional learning experience was held in July at the University of North Carolina in Wilmington.
A global community of education professionals supported by Discovery Education, the Discovery Educator Network (DEN) connects members across school systems and around the world through social media, virtual conferences and in-person events, fostering valuable networking, idea sharing and inspiration. DENSI 2018 featured a number of interactive seminars and hands-on workshops designed to support educators as they combine the latest technologies and digital content to create authentic digital learning environments that engage students and improve achievement. In addition, DENSI provided an opportunity for participants to connect, collaborate and share resources and strategies for integrating the latest technologies and digital content into classroom instruction.
Participation in the DENSI is open to educators recognized by Discovery Education as STAR Discovery Educators. STAR Discovery Educators are active members of the DEN and proven leaders in transforming teaching and learning.
“Rob’s selection for DENSI demonstrates his outstanding leadership and commitment to using the latest technologies and innovative teaching strategies and techniques to improve student achievement,” said Lance Rougeux, vice president of learning communities and innovation for Discovery Education. “His participation in DENSI 2018 will help increase student engagement across Pattonville School District R3 and support the district’s effort to prepare all learners with the critical skills they need to succeed beyond the classroom.”
