Silver Spring, MD (Friday, December 11, 2020)Discovery Education Experience was recently honored with Tech & Learning’s The Best of 2020 award. Winning submissions were selected by a panel of judges rating the individual products on a sliding scale, evaluating areas such as value, uniqueness in the market, and the product’s ability to solve specific problems for educators and administrators. Discovery Education is the global leader in standards-aligned digital curriculum resources, engaging content, and professional learning for K-12 classrooms.

Discovery Education Experience is a flexible K-12 learning platform that connects educators to a vast collection of compelling high-quality, standards-aligned content, ready-to-use digital lessons, and professional learning resources. Together, these resources give educators everything they need to facilitate instruction in any learning environment and create lasting educational impact.

In 2020, Experience played a key role in Discovery Education’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic. On March 5th, Discovery Education made Experience available, at no cost, to any school system not currently using the company’s resources for the remainder of the 2019-2020 school year. From March 2020 to July 2020, over 15,000 new schools actively utilized Discovery Education Experience as part of instruction. During that same time, Discovery Education hosted more than 150 online, no cost events designed to provide educators strategies they can use to continue student learning during the pandemic. These events reached over 20,000 educators in all 50 states and 17 countries.

Discovery Education’s team continues adding, contextualizing, and organizing exciting new content and timely resources to Experience each month in response to current events and the ever-evolving needs of educators. These resources, sourced from trusted partners, are aligned to state and national standards, and help educators bring the outside world into teaching and learning every day.

Finally, Experience is designed to work within school systems’ existing infrastructure and workflows. Through expanded partnerships with Microsoft Teams, Google Classroom, Schoology, Canvas, and Clever, integrating Experience into existing IT architecture is easier than ever.

“We dedicate this award to the talented educators around the world that, through this difficult year, used our resources to keep their students learning and connected to their curiosity,” said Scott Kinney, Discovery Education’s President of K-12 Education. “Discovery Education is honored by Tech & Learning’s recognition of Discovery Education Experience and this acknowledgment will further motivate our expert team to find new ways to serve the needs of the educators during the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond.”
