Bridgeport Discovers There’s Something For Everyone
Bridgeport Connecticut educators discovered that Discovery Education streaming Plus has something for everyone featuring a variety of multimedia tools to meet the diverse needs of our students. As one participant commented, “As a counselor, I feel that at times certain workshops only pertain to staff that are in a classroom all day. I did not feel this way with Discovery Education. I found many helpful clips and tools to use in my developmental guidance units.” We also explored some of the unique media found within streaming Plus that is sometimes overlooked: songs (close to 500), educational games, animations, and Math Explanations. Do you know magnets are made of? Listen to the song, Electricity which you can find by doing a Keyword Search and filtering the Media Type to song. We did!
Teachers offered ideas on how they plan to use streaming resources in summer school: ”… I will use it to help students who have failed math … especially the math explanations.” As well as in the fall: “I plan on using several videos and images to at the beginning of the school year in order to give the students background information on new topics.” An overall great experience learning and wanting to do more with DE streaming tools. Kudos to the Educational Technology team for bringing us together and offering tremendous hands-on support. Bridgeport Public Schools, “Expect Great Things!”
