Do More With Discovery Education

As more of my district's teachers have started to implement the Discovery Education content and resources available to them into their lessons, I decided it was time to add another set of tutorials.  In a previous post, I demonstrated how teachers can search for resources and then share the links with their students.  If you're ready to take things to another level, you can start to share DE resources with your colleagues in your school and/or district and (this is the really big one) you can create your own classes, add your students, and create assignments that get delivered directly to the students.  Two of the assignment types that you can build are writing prompts and quizzes and the results of both can be reviewed and commented on by the teachers.  I go into a lot more detail in the videos.  Be sure to watch them in full screen and 720 HD.  Enjoy!
