Ever wondered how other districts across the nation are using Discovery Education? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then we have the program for you!

The STAR Ambassador Program is designed to fully support teachers as they integrate digital media and technology into their teaching practice. During this program, participants will come together for three face-to-face meetings. A variety of learning experiences will be provided throughout the program, as well as the opportunity to connect and learn via a private Edmodo group. To learn more about the program visit
