​Discovery Education - A Wealth of Resources Available at your Fingertips

If you have recently logged onto the Discovery Education web site (formerly known as United Streaming), you have probably noticed that the home page has a completely new look. That’s because over the summer, DE released an updated version of their old site – which includes thousands of new media (videos and segments, audio, songs, interactive games, skill builders and more!) For those of you who regularly use this resource, it is probably hard to imagine that it could be an even more valuable tool — but it has become just that!

Not only do you have access to all of the medium already mentioned, but all B-A teachers have the ability to utilize the Curriculum Resources such as Puzzlemaker, the Lesson Plan Library and the DE Atlas, which are all located in the Teacher Center. And for the really ambitious, DE has improved its “Builder Tools” section where teachers have the capability of creating assignments, quizzes and writing prompts using all of DE’s content — a really cool enhancement!

Since DE is going to be one area of focus in this year’s district-wide technology integration initiative, I will be providing various trainings throughout the year demonstrating how to use all of DE’s features. In fact, the first workshop will be held for middle/high school teachers during the November 10 in-service. Training dates for the elementary teachers will be forthcoming.
In the meantime, if you would like some help navigating this new user interface, creating an account and/or getting started with this resource, please contact me! I’ll be more than happy to schedule a time when we can meet!

By the way — if you already have an account, your username and password is still applicable. If you do not have an account, but would like to create one, please use the directions located below to guide you through the process.
