Introducing Digital Discovery

In response to requests from educators who use unitedstreaming, later this week Discovery Education will launch Digital Discovery, a 32-page print resource guide for teachers with usable tips and ideas for integrating unitedstreaming into classroom curriculum. 

The premier issue features articles and tips that related to the theme "Connecting to the World", including:

What Works: "Global Connections" illustrates how teachers Margot Churchill and Carol Anne McGuire have used unitedstreaming as an activator for lessons on international topics and provides tips for teachers on how to get started with global learning exchanges.

Integration Station: "Days to Remember" provides techniques for how teachers of all grades and at all levels of technological ability can use the calendar feature of unitedstreaming to enhance lessons.

Media Center: "The Proof is in the Permissions", by Hall Davidson is a primer for librarians on common copyright questions regarding digital media.

Cool Tools: Practical ideas for using unitedstreaming with PowerPoint to help make ordinary reports and presentations… well, cool!

The Big Picture: How administrators make the case for using digital resources to improve instruction.

Getting Started, Full Speed: Reproducible "How To" guides and lesson plans help make getting started with unitedstreaming as easy as 1…2…stream!

Each issue also includes a poster for your classroom that relates to the issue theme.

The premier issue of unitedstreaming will be delivered at your school by September 1, 2005 with future issues arriving bi-monthly. 

If you would like to contribute an article to be published in future issues or if you know a dynamic educator you would like us to interview for Digital Discovery, please let us know!

Coming Soon! Look for an online version of the guide at www.unitedstreaming.com/digitaldiscovery.

    The premier issue of Digital Discovery was most interesting. I read cover to cover. I did have a question about copyright permissions that was not answered by that article. In September I emailed unitedstreaming for a response to the question. “May we download and/or burn a CD with videos that forbid it on their opening credits? The response was that it is not only permissible but advantageous to download any unitedstreaming videos that you intend to use in the classroom. Editing or changing the original video is not permitted.
