Silver Spring, Md. (June 24, 2019) —Beginning July 1, users of Discovery Education Streaming will have the opportunity to preview the new Discovery Education Experience, which becomes available to schools and educators nationwide at the beginning of the 2019-2020 school year. A new generation of Discovery Education’s award-winning Streaming service, Discovery Education Experience supports instruction across all K-12 curricular areas. Through curated, personalized, one-of-a-kind digital curriculum resources delivered to the educator based on their preferences, Discovery Education Experience helps busy teachers save time and more easily differentiate instruction. This experiential and highly relevant content helps students relate to and better understand subject matter, driving deeper engagement and learning. Discovery Education is the global leader in standards-aligned digital curriculum resources, engaging content, and professional learning for K-12 classrooms.
Discovery Education Experience assists educators in creating real-world learning opportunities that engage all students and lead to improved academic achievement. The service’s standards-aligned content is assignable and can be bookmarked and saved for later use and remixed to meet the varying needs of diverse student populations in a safe and secure environment. In addition, the service’s up-to-date, high-quality, and ever-growing digital content collections, as well as a library of immersive virtual field trips, are drawn from trusted partners.
Discovery Education Experience’s engaging content is complemented by a rich library of creative, research-based instructional strategies for integrating digital media in meaningful, effective, and practical ways. These teacher-tested instructional strategies help educators dive deeper into the intentional and effective integration of Discovery Education’s digital content. Aligned to McREL International’s 6-Phase Model of Learning, these strategies foster skill development, complement different types of content, and are conveniently paired with content at the point of use.
The new Discovery Education Experience also offers embedded content creation and real-time collaboration features through the Studio suite of tools. An environment where teachers and students design, build, and share content in new and creative ways, Studio supports the creation of grab and go lessons that combine multi-modal content and effective instructional strategies that empower educators to dive deeply into targeted topic areas.

Educators using Discovery Education Experience will be supported by the Discovery Education Community. A global community of education professionals, the Discovery Education Community connects members across school systems and around the world through social media, virtual conferences, and in-person events, fostering valuable networking, idea sharing, and inspiration.
