5 Ways to Support Remote and Hybrid Learning

When looking for ways to maintain continuity of learning and create impactful lessons for all students in any environment, consider these five ways Discovery Education Experience supports both educators and students in class, remote, and blended or hybrid learning.

1 Assigning Content

Flipped learning is easier when you have access to thousands of standards-aligned, vetted resources and reliable, high-quality content—especially if it’s all in one place. Experience provides an extensive repository of the best digital content for instruction, and lets you assign individual pieces and assignments or even a whole folder of content to your students no matter where they are.

Experience contains over 190,000 exciting resources and activities supporting many core concepts and subjects, including language arts, math, social studies, science, health, and visual or performing arts.

2 Take a Virtual Field Trip

Students may be stuck indoors, but you can still take them on a trip around the world, no permission slips required. Virtual Field Trips whisk students away to amazing places and give them remarkable experiences without ever leaving the classroom (or home!).

From polar bear habitats on the frozen tundra to factories of major manufacturers and the courts of the NBA, inspire students’ natural curiosity and introduce them to new interests and careers as they explore these exciting destinations.

3 Assign a Pre-Made Lesson Activity

Save time with thousands of tried and true grab-and-go lessons and pre-made activities that combine Discovery Education digital content with the strategies our educators love. Assign them as is or modify them for specific students or groups.

4 Design and Differentiate Your Own Multimedia Lesson

Use our powerful Studio tool to easily create, differentiate, and share lessons in a way that works best for both you and your students. Safely search for resources and add them to your Studio board, insert written, audio, or video instructions, and you’re ready to go!

5 Unleash Student Creativity

Challenge your students to select a topic they are passionate about, search for resources in the Discovery Education Student Center, and create a Studio board to demonstrate what they’ve learned. Students will be able to build their confidence with digital learning resources and demonstrate their understanding no matter where they’re working. Use the Twenty-Five Things You Didn’t Know SOS Student Learning Activity to get your students started.

  • Resources for Student Exploration
