I’m noticing that the more my students work through discovery, the more motivated they are to interact with the benchmarks and lessons being taught. I am constantly hearing, “when I worked on Discovery Education”. I use some of the videos and lessons whole group, but it makes more of an impact when the students can manipulate the lesson and videos on their own time at their own pace. If more teachers would integrate Discovery Education into their classrooms, the more sparks they will see in their students eyes. I know I’m truly loving the excitement my students are now expressing.
The use of the Streaming Plus is very useful in the classroom. The only downside is that the model lessons are only available for reading and math under Common Core. I am a huge fan of Discovery. As a science teacher, the video demonstrations are heaven sent for when hands on activities are not available.
Hello world. This is my first blog and I wanted to share with with you some wonderful news. I have introduced two more teacher to the wonderful world of Discovery Education. I was not aware there were so many educators not aware of the benefits of using the internet in the classroom. I hope I was successful in introducing them to a new world of teaching.
