November 6, 2010
Join Discovery Education's Arkansas Leadership Council for a fabulous event on Saturday, November 6, 2010, as we explore Hot Springs, the perfect site to learn about Arkansas History. Hot Springs has a colorful heritage and the honor of having one of the first national parks. This event, which focuses on Arkansas History, emphasizes how Discovery Education Streaming and Streaming Plus can be used to supplement the Arkansas History curriculum. During this event we will be teaching participants how to use Discovery media in Prezi, a presentation editor used to create live and online presentations. Participants will be encouraged to take photographs of the historic Fordyce Bathhouse, the Arkansas School for Mathematics, Sciences, and the Arts, and numerous other historic buildings, artifacts, and primary sources that surround the downtown area. Participants will then be able to include these photographs in their Arkansas history prezi. The event will also include a presentation from the Director of the Garland County Historical Society as well as a National Park tour of the Fordyce Bathhouse. The event will finish with lunch at the historic Brickhouse Grill.
