Digital Media Center Update

November 2014

Welcome Back!

Welcome to a new school year and another year of Digital Media Center (DMC) membership! I'm hoping to get a newsletter out to you each month, highlighting great features of our DMC databases and showcasing tips and tricks to get the most out of your subscription. Please share this newsletter with your tech leads, media specialists, or whomever will help to disseminate information about DMC for your district.


Many of you have already updated your district's contact information and scheduled a fall training with me. If you haven't, please contact me to get on the calendar soon. Once teachers know about the tools, they will use them in impressive ways. We can customize the training length and focus to meet your district's needs. I'm excited to come out and help everyone pump up their classroom instruction with rich media and research tools!

Feature of the Month

We've updated our website!

Have you visited our Digital Media Center website lately? If not, check it out. We've made the site easier to navigate and are adding some new features. The site is still being updated, but as time goes on we hope to add more and more resources. You'll find starting points for each grade band and improved tutorials to help you use all the great features of the Digital Media Center.
