    • 1. Discovery Education Presented By Tracey Coles
    • 2. What Is Discovery Education?
      • A comprehensive library of standards-based video that can be integrated into K-12 classroom lessons.
      • From core-curriculum subjects to health and P.E., there’s something for every teacher and every student.
      • It is never obsolete, video titles are constantly added throughout the year.
    • 3. Why Discovery Education?
      • Because we want to enhance our lessons and provide our students with concrete real-world experiences.
      • We want them to have the knowledge to understand other people, places, things, and most importantly ideas.
      • Our students should be engaged and experience first-hand what might not ordinarily be possible.
    • 4. How Can I Do This?
      • Videos can be accessed directly on the Internet, or they can be downloaded for future use.
      • Videos can be downloaded to any storage device such as disk, hard drive, or flash drive: when you want it you got it.
      • Once the video is downloaded, it can be played without being connected to the Internet.
