Discovery Education is transforming the way Thompson educators are teaching in the classroom. The Thompson School District is focusing on optimizing 21st century learning in each classroom. Discovery Education is a tool for students and teachers to use to enhance their knowledge base about science, health, math, social studies, and other content areas while using 21st century learning techniques. Discovery Education offers interactive digital textbooks, engaging standards-aligned content, comprehensive professional development, assessment services, virtual experiences, learning communities and much more. These resources can be accessed using the iPads that were funded in the recent secondary science instructional materials adoption.
In order to fully understand all that Discovery Education has to offer, Thompson School District employees had an opportunity to attend a series of trainings dedicated to all the tools they offer. Integrating Discovery Education Streaming, Maximizing Student Engagement, Take a Bite Out of the Common Core, and Digital Storytelling were the first four trainings offered to the Thompson educators. Each training introduced a different facet of the digital content offered by Discovery Education.
Discovery Education will help captivate students in a whole new way. Unlimited access to possibilities on their iPad, while using Discovery Education as a learning tool, student achievement will be accelerated in each classroom. This is going to impact the way students learn and break down barriers, moving beyond textbooks that so quickly go out-of-date. Science is ever-changing thing that textbooks cannot keep up with. Using Discovery Education will give students the opportunity to access all of the most recent discoveries and concepts.
Technology is changing the way educators teach. Discovery Education is a perfect example of the many benefits to optimize 21st century learning in the classroom.
