Discovery Education is all about providing teachers with the best digital tools for reaching every learner. Additionally, we believe in the power of community. So please, bring a friend and pass the word along!

Speaking of power, in case you missed it, last week we had a web-based session on PowerPoint. If you weren’t able to make it, you can watch it by clicking here (player download may be required): I Can Do THAT with PowerPoint?
