"Online Learning Tool"

What do you like best?

I love that Discovery Education Inc provides many different types of content- video, audio, picture, text, etc. The site is extremely user friendly. You can save content to your profile as well as organize any saved content into folders. This is extremely useful for teachers who teach multiple grade levels and/or subjects.

What do you dislike?

Some content is a bit outdated, especially in the subjects of the arts and humanities. In addition, I am unsure when new content is added in my area. I wish that there was an option to receive a notification when new content is available in a specific subject or grade.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I recommend Discovery Education Inc for the STEM subjects as there is a lot of various content. For the Arts and Humanities, there is a good amount of content but some is very outdated.

"Discover Education Review"

What do you like best?

The videos are great. It's a nice go to when supplementing videos for lessons. I know that they will be school appropriate and geared for furthering education on the topic.

What do you dislike?

Not a fan of the reading assignments. There aren't usually questions to go along, so I end up having to create those. It would be nice if there were more reading assignments with canned questions.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Maybe ask teachers to help write up lesson plans/questions to go along with not only readings/passages but also videos so there is an accountability piece already worked into them.

What Training & Development solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"Great Supplementary Resource"

What do you like best?

The best part of this program is the plethora of activities and resources. In a classroom where differentiated instruction is important because you have so many different learning styles, it is important to have a variety of materials that engage all students. Some of the materials available include worksheets, lesson plans, videos, and graphs.

What do you dislike?

I would like to have other subjects available, such as English Language Arts. As of now, materials are offered for Math, Science, Technology, and Social Studies.

"Teacher for Discovery Ed. "

What do you like best?

I love the interactive labs and experiments that students can use. In those interactives they do a really good job graphing the student data based on the virtual experiment outcomes.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes quality of videos is sub par and other videos need to be screened before watching for showing to a class. Board builders are also a little hard to utilize, especially for students.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I have not personally ever had to have assistance using this program but I know others in the district have had success in getting help and questions answered.

"One Stop shop for videos"

What do you like best?

My favorite feature of Discovery Education is the ability to download movies for use at a later time.

What do you dislike?

The only thing I dislike about the program is the cost. I wish it was more affordable for educators to purchase at a personal level instead of having to be a district subscription.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I highly recommend this as a cross-curricular tool.

"Classroom Learning"

What do you like best?

I like that their are videos geared towards all grade levels and covers many content areas.

What do you dislike?

I wish there were more appropriate K-2 content videos. Many videos for K-2 are connected with other grade levels, which makes it inappropriate to show younger students.

"Great content though a bit dated"

What do you like best?

Plenty of material on different material

What do you dislike?

Some of the videos are pretty dated. It doesn't seem as they should being from the 2000s but with it now 2018 a 2004 video is dated. Material wise and editing wise.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Great resource. Just check date of material to make sure ideology hasn't changed.
