The Thanksgiving holiday is about taking the time to reflect upon what we are thankful for. One of the things that I am thankful for is the cornucopia of resources that DE has to offer. It is a virtual buffet of educational and professional resources, however it still amazes me that some of my colleagues only use discoveryeducation.com to stream videos. I feel that just using DE for streaming is like having Thanksgiving dinner and only eating turkey. Not that there is anything wrong about that, it’s just that there is so much more to DE than streaming.
I enjoy turkey, but what I really like is the side dishes. Think of all of the accompaniments that come along with DE. There are “side dishes” for all. There are images, lesson plans, articles, songs, thematic units…you name it. There is something for everyone who stops by, and there’s always enough to come back for seconds and then some!
Thanksgiving is also a time to catch up with your friends and family. In addition to your buffet of resources at DE, you get to network with educators around the world. You can share lesson plans and resources through media share or through virtual conferences and webinars or face to face during DEN events throughout the year. Thanksgiving is a yearlong celebration thanks to Discovery Education.
This holiday season, enjoy your buffet of resources along with your DEN family, all provided by DE…be sure to come back for seconds.
