The Discovery Education Experience combines dynamic curated curriculum resources with grab-and-go teaching strategies, personalised for your needs as an educator.
Step 1: Sign in and personalise your Experience
Discovery Education is a personalised content and teaching experience with hundreds of thousands of digital curriculum and professional learning resources curated just for you. When you tell us about your teaching interests, we make sure you see the right content for you.
Step 2: My DE
My DE is your home page and hub to Discovery Education services, preferred content, and teaching tools. It is personalised to the key stages, subjects, and teaching and learning interest you select. We also add a few Channels we think you'll love, like Home learning, News and Calendar picks, and top picks from our Discovery Education team.
Step 3: Explore Channels
Featuring resources selected and curated by Discovery Education’s curriculum experts, Channels offer video clips, images, songs, articles, and more on many of Discovery Education’s most-searched topics. Channels are featured in your search results when a topic that has a Channel is entered in a keyword search. Subscribe to a Channel and add it to your My DE homepage for easy access and to see the best content about topics that are important to you.
Step 4: Browse for Resources
Step 5: Search for Resources
Search to locate video segments, images, songs, sound effects, articles, audio files, lesson plans, animations, clip art, and more. Search using a keyword term, a topic, or objective.
When results are displayed, you can narrow your results by filtering for service, key stage, resource type, or other characteristics like copyright date, or publisher.
Step 6: Bookmark and Organise Content
In addition to subscribing to Channels, as you discover resources to use right now or review later, Discovery Education offers two ways to bookmark resources for easy access in the future. QuickList allows you to add resources to a list which is accessible from any page.
To add a video, song, image, exploration, or any other resource to your QuickList, select the “+” on the resource.
My Content allows you to collect, organise, share, and retrieve your favourite Discovery Education resources in an organised filing structure. Access your My Content resources from the Teach menu.
Step 7: Explore Video and Other Resources
Stream or download video content. Easy-to-use tabs provide quick access to smaller video segments, the video transcript, citation information, related materials, and other titles in the same series. In addition to video, Discovery Education audio includes songs, sound effects, and other audio, which can include podcasts, audiobooks, short stories, poetry, historic speeches, and more. Discovery Education images include photographs, models, maps, illustrations, and clip art, while a variety of interactive resources can be used to engage students and enhance instruction.
Step 8: Utilise a Spotlight on Strategy
SOS teaching strategies are research-based strategies for integrating Discovery Education digital curriculum resources in meaningful, effective, and practical ways. Find the complete SOS series organized by student skill or instructional intent in Instructional Strategies.
Step 9: Create with Studio
