Pardes Peeks at Discovery Streaming!

Tuesday, August 10, 2010 Pardes Jewish Day School Teachers investigated Discovery Streaming.  Pardes is a beautiful private school in Phoenix, Arizona.  It is rated one of the top 10 schools in Arizona.  Teachers worked to develop skills in embedding technology in the classroom.  Many teachers were surprised to see that Streaming is more than just video.

New strategies were shared and teachers were excited to see images, black line masters, lesson plans and songs.  The excitement increased as everyone was able to find at least one new asset for their lessons.     Because school was beginning in just a few days teachers were relieved to see information  that could be used immediately.  Many people enjoyed the multitude of educational games available.

Pardes Jewish Day School also subscribed to Discovery Science.  With this asset Pardes faculty and students will be able to complete virtual labs.

The possibilities are endless and teachers are Pardes Jewish Day School are well on their way to utilizing Discovery technology in their classrooms.
