Discovery Education, formally United Streaming, has got to be at the top of my ten most favorite educational services. Discovery Education is an online library of visual media. They have images, videos, podcasts as well as a means to create a webquest or online lesson, complete with onlne quiz generator. I love this tool! Furthermore, this tool has partnered with Edmodo, my favorite learning management system, so that the resources may be used in an Edmodo lesson. Too, Discovery is tablet friendly, making it the perfect differentiation tool. Below is a cheat sheet for how to get up and running quickly with Discovery Learning.
_Hi, my name is Melanie Lewis. I am an Instructional Technology Resource Teacher for Amherst County Public Schools,
located in the beautiful state of Virginia. I LOVE my job! I get to
work on my hobby, anything that has to do with computers. I get to work
with teachers and students, and I am definitely a people person. Plus,
I DO NOT have to give grades. Wonderful, huh? Let me know how I can help you better integrate technology into your classroom.
