Discovery Education Discovery Education Presentation Transcript

  • Discovery Education Presented By Tracey Coles
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
