Making Stuff with Discovery Education

I know most of you are excited for the Doodle4Google competition next week, and I’ll remind you about it on Monday. In the meantime, I wanted to call your attention to a cool new series being developed by the team, here, at Discovery Education. My colleagues are developing tutorials for you — our student network — on a bunch of web tools and how to use them with all the DE resources you have in your accounts.

Here’s our first one — it’s on WeVideo. In the coming months, we’ll be featuring iPiccy, Blabberize, and Quicktime. If you’re not already an expert (many of you probably are), check out our short, 7-minute tutorials and get creating!

Making Stuff with Discovery Education and WeVideo — TUTORIAL

See you next week for the Doodle4Google livestream event on Wednesday, March 5th!

      Hi Lilly! I’m an adult — probably the same age as many of your teachers. For privacy reasons, I make it a point not to post my actual age online, though. Hope you understand. :-)

      Hi Cassidy. Sorry to confuse you. My colleagues and I are just making and posting some quick, 7-8 minute tutorials on cool web tools that you can use with resources you find in your Discovery Education account and elsewhere. It’s just for fun. I hope you try some and enjoy making videos and mashing up images, etc. Let me know if you have more questions.

    Jeanette! Been a long time since I’ve posted something. I have a question. How do you post a blog?
    I really want to post one, all of my friends have blogs but me, I don’t even know how to post a blog.

        Hello Renee and A! Thanks for your interest in blogging. I bet you two have a lot to blog about. There are lots of different sites that allow you to create a private or public blog. There are folks at Discovery that set this blog up for us, but I know a lot of people that have their own personal blogs. You can just do a little research online to get suggestions and tips. Depending on your age, you will need supervision and approvals from parents/guardians.

        If you are wondering more about how you might post an article on this blog, that is a great question. We are currently considering a system that would allow people to submit posts, but it may be a while before we have all the permissions worked out. Keep an eye out here, because I will announce it, if/when it becomes reality.
