    Spotlight on Strategies- Digital Citizenship

     

    The SOS series includes creative, research-based instructional strategies for integrating digital media in meaningful, effective, and practical ways. Each month we will highlight a different strategy for you to try, shared by a member of your  DEN Community.

     

    In this season of awards and celebrations, check out  And the Award Goes To - a teaching strategy that relies on images to enhance content-related certificates that are awarded to recognize effort and achievement. The content-related certificates reinforce key concepts and help solidify learning.




    TeenDrive365, from Toyota and Discovery Education, provides teachers, parents, and young drivers with digital curriculum resources to learn about safe driving and sponsors the annual TeenDrive365 Video Challenge. However, time is short. The 2019 TeenDrive365 Video Challenge will only accept entries until February 28, 2019.

     

    Please direct your high school students today to visit http://teendrive365inschool.com/about-the-video-challenge and to produce their own 30-60 second video PSA about safe driving. They could win $15,000 and the chance to work with a Discovery Education film crew to make their video a TV-ready PSA. Find the contest rules and previous winning videos  here.
