This is the last Sunday of Connected Educator Month, and as you know, we’ve been sharing a featured board, created using Discovery Education’s Board Builder every Sunday of October. You can see the previous Featured Boards here. Board Builder is a great tool for users to create “multimedia posters” that can hold text, images, and video. The great part of Board Builder is the seamless transition with content from Discovery Education. However, users can also upload their own content, including video and images from other sources. Board Builder can be used in a variety of ways – in fact, we previously shared 50 ways to use Board Builder in your classroom.
This week’s Featured Board shows how Board Builder can be used to share professional development with your staff. In the very near future, Board Builder will be available in teacher accounts so you’ll have the opportunity to create your own boards right from your account. Take a look at the board below that shares information about Discovery Education Streaming Plus. The board highlights some of the features and content as well as resources to share Streaming Plus with your colleagues. As you probably know, all STAR Discovery Educators have free access to Discovery Education Streaming Plus through an awesome promotion. Take a look at the example below.
