Provisioning and onboarding are built with districts in mind so teachers and students can focus on learning rather than technical hurdles. Once inside they have the ability to discover, curate, and share high-quality, engaging, and educational content in a safe and easy-to-use environment. Our educators can personalize their experience through our newly launched homepage and learning engine making it easier to find and assign standards aligned content. And, of course, DEX the tools to add assessments that check for understanding. With our newly revised Discovery Studio both educators and students can leverage our content in entirely new ways by leveraging, creating, and sharing custom slideshows.

--Martha Basulto, Grade 2 Gifted Teacher

 

“Teachers like you and I have been tasked to pivot… immediately. We were in schools, then we were set home, given a computer and told, ‘Go teach.’ During this transition, Discovery Education has definitely been a lifesaver. It was built for digital learning and delivery.”
