Teacher Appreciation Week 2015 is winding down, but we still have a few more things to share, including some exciting updates to your Discovery Education user experience and access to another premium service from a friend of the DEN.
We want to make it easy for you to share and learn from other educators, so we’ve added a commenting feature into your Discovery Education services. Log in to your Discovery Education account, search for a favorite resource, and leave a comment about how you are using it. You’ll also be able to read comments from other teachers with their favorite tips and tricks. This brand new feature is launching today in the U.S., just in time to celebrate Teacher Appreciation Week. Don’t worry if you are outside of the U.S., commenting will be available to you very soon. Watch this Discovery Education Essentials episode to learn more.
Today’s gift comes courtesy of our friends at eduCannon. STAR Discovery Educators* get a full year of premium access for free! eduCanon is an online learning environment to create and share interactive video lessons.
eduCanon helps schools and teachers realize 21st century student engagement through interactive video. This is done by empowering teachers to author interactive content–building questions and media elements into the timeline of nearly any online video. As students
engage with your video, eduCanon feeds you data on who has watched your video and which concepts challenged your students.
Thank you for being a STAR Discovery Educator. We hope you enjoy your FREE one year premium access to eduCanon.
