Integrating Discovery Education streaming

This course introduces participants to the content and capability found in Discovery Education streaming. Educators will learn how to search for content based on a variety of different tags, including standards, keyword, media type, grade level, and more, making it easy to link lesson objectives to up-to-date digital resources. In addition to content searching, this basic level course details the ways in which digital content can be accessed, stored, and used. Professional Development Specialists will show participants the difference between streaming and downloading, how to store content markers in personal folders and share those markers with others in the school, district, or nation. In addition to direct instruction and demonstration, this course provides time for participants to explore several areas of Discovery Education streaming and get started creating their own folders and lesson plans.
