  • The main point to emphasize while working with this slide is the fact that the search tools work differently. Note: This is one of several points in the presentation that it would be effective to open up the live unitedDiscovery Education streaming web site and demonstrate the look and functionality of the search tools. By keeping both this PowerPoint window and the browser window open throughout the presentation, it will be easy to switch between views by using the application icons on the Taskbar (Windows) or the Dock (Macintosh).
  • This presentation can be used in traditional linear fashion or be run as an interactive slide show. By clicking on either the icons above or the Contents Headings, you can navigate to those specific segments of the presentation. Many of the slides have text boxes, arrows, or pointers that are timed to display automatically. Note that there is an icon with the word “Home” at the bottom of each slide in the main portion of the presentation. When you click on this icon, you will be returned to this menu slide.

  • Implementation Strategies and Software Integration
  • Software Applications You can use hyperlinking or embedding techniques to integrate Discovery Education streaming clips into projects made with many software applications.
  • Downloaded Segments There are three common ways that you can use downloaded video segments: Standalone files: Just double-click on the file icons to open the preferred media player to play the segments. Hyperlinks: Create hyperlinks in most standard applications to link words and pictures to video resources that you wish to add to your lessons. Embedded Video: Insert video segments directly into documents and slides and view the segments without using a media player. Hyperlinking In software applications like Word, PowerPoint, Inspiration, and many others, users can click on defined hyperlinks to view video segments with a specified media player. Embedded Video PowerPoint, AppleWorks, and Keynote are among the software products that allow you to embed video files right onto the pages and slides that you have created:
  • PowerPoint Example
  • Teaching Strategies During student presentations, mute the sound and have students write their own narrations for video segments. Play segments with sound but without video display; encourage students to listen for details and unique sounds before they write. Even with short segments, stop to discuss specific frames in the video or use the still images for writing prompts. Some Teaching Strategies to Consider Create lessons and projects in which students are always actively involved in the viewing process and follow-up activities. Try creating individualized projects that students can access on “learning centers” in the classroom or computer labs. Be sure to pose questions or prepare thought-provoking “lesson starters” before viewing to actively engage students.
  • Copyright Issues No video editing software is permitted except for those titles that have been designated as “Editable Content.” Students are allowed to keep projects containing video segments in their electronic portfolios if used for demonstration purposes. Teachers may keep video files and projects on disks and servers as long as the Discovery Education streaming subscription is current. Protect the content, especially when creating web pages, so that only subscribers are able to see the video files. Converting digital video to analog format such as VHS cassettes is not allowed—only digital devices may be used. Use the dynamic citations provided with Discovery Education streaming digital media when you cite video resources and support materials. Protecting Discovery Education streaming Content
