Discovery Education’s flexible K-12 learning platform was recently honored as one of Tech & Learning’s 2021 Best Remote & Blended Learning Tools in the Secondary (6-12) Education category. Winning submissions to this program were deemed by Tech &Learning’s judges as standouts for helping students, parents, and teachers succeed in COVID-19’s new learning environments. Discovery Education is the global leader in standards-aligned digital curriculum resources and professional learning for K-12 classrooms.
As schools pivoted from in-person to remote and blended learning this past year, technology solutions were key to delivering quality, continuous learning. To celebrate the work of technology providers who stepped up to support this effort, Tech & Learning launched The Best Tools for Remote & Blended Learning, a new offering in its legacy Awards of Excellence program.
“Despite the many challenges schools have had to face this past year, technology continues to be one of the key drivers for innovation,” says Tech & Learning Group Publisher Christine Weiser. “The winning products recognized here have supported continuous instruction throughout the pandemic, and we expect this momentum to continue into next year and beyond. Congratulations to all of our winners.”
Discovery Education’s K-12 learning platform connects schools to a vast collection of compelling high-quality, standards-aligned content, ready-to-use digital lessons, and professional learning resources. In addition, the Discovery Education platform provides educators everything they need to facilitate instruction in any learning environment and create lasting educational impact.
Discovery Education’s team continues adding, contextualizing, and organizing exciting new content and timely resources to the platform each month in response to current events and the ever-evolving needs of educators. These resources, sourced from trusted partners, are aligned to state and national standards and help educators bring the outside world into teaching and learning every day.
Finally, the Discovery Education platform is designed to work within school systems’ existing infrastructure and workflows. Through expanded partnerships with Microsoft Teams, Google Classroom, Schoology, Canvas, and Clever, integrating the platform into existing IT architecture is easier than ever.
“Discovery Education is honored by Tech & Learning’s recognition of its K-12 learning platform,” said Scott Kinney, Discovery Education CEO. “Discovery Education is the home to many former classroom teachers and when COVID-19 struck the U.S. school system, our team worked long hours and weekends to help those educators in school systems maintain students’ continuity of learning through our K-12 platform. The positive feedback from teachers, students, and trusted edtech organizations, such as Tech & Learning, has made that hard work worthwhile.”
