Have You Discovered “Discovery Education” Yet?

If you like the Discovery Channel on TV, then you really should check out Discovery Education online.

What is Discovery Education? Like the Discovery Channel, Discovery Education is all about learning and discovering information and using that information in our lives. According to their website, “Discovery Education offers a breadth and depth of digital media content that is immersive, engaging and brings the world into the classroom to give every student a chance to experience fascinating people, places, and events. All content is aligned to state standards, can be aligned to custom curriculum, and supports classroom instruction regardless of the technology platform.”

Is this site only for education majors? No, any KU student can create a login and use this resource. However, ALL education majors should become familiar with it due to its content. KU students can find out how to create an account to use this great resource by calling our Periodicals Office at 610-683-4158 or contacting Karen Wanamaker.

What will I find there? Webinars, blogs, an interactive atlas, Teacher tools & professional development opportunities, and tons of streaming videos for classroom use or personal enjoyment. Check out videos of children’s books such as James Marshall’s Goldilocks and the Three Bears or learn about the Breathing (the respiratory system) with younger students. Explore iGenius: How Steve Jobs Changed the World or Levitating Vehicles (Analyzes levitating vehicle technology in the film Star Wars) with older students. There are videos for all subjects and for all ages. Some of them even come with teacher’s guides.

Contact Karen Wanamaker, librarian, for more information. Enjoy!
