Students at W.E. Striplin are on Board!

This week the Discovery Educator Network team had a chance to visit classrooms at W.E. Striplin Elementary School in Gadsden, Alabama.  We saw some amazing projects created by students using the Discovery Education Board Builder.

Students are creating digital boards about all sorts of topics that interest them.

Their favorite foods.  Favorite animals.  Favorite places.  Science boards about electricity.  Social Studies boards about Mt. Everest.  Boards about all sorts of things.

Principal Easley joined us in learning from the Striplin students in Mrs. Hedgspeth’s and Mrs. Glaze’s classes.  We were very impressed.  And we learned that students not only love creating boards during the school day, but they use their Discovery Education accounts at home.  Do you?

If you haven’t tried the Board Builder yet, there is no time like the present.  Start with a topic you are learning about in school or that you simply have an interest in.  Do some research in Discovery Education by finding videos, images, songs, animations and more about your topic.

Then, go the Board Builder and create a digital project to share what you learned.  It’s fun!

Choose a theme, change the background, add text, add videos, insert pictures, link out to other websites – make your board your own!  You can use whatever you want to show others what you know about your topic.  When you are finished (don’t forget to review and check your spelling), submit it to your teacher.

Maybe we’ll visit your school next to see what you and your classmates create!
