ESPRESSO LAUNCHES NEW FEATURES TO ENGAGE PUPILS WITH DIGITAL CONTENT EVERYDAY
Discovery Education today announced new features and enhancements to its award-winning primary school learning platform, Discovery Education Espresso. The latest updates combine dynamic new tools with the amazing, timely content teachers have come to know and love, giving educators new ways to seamlessly create exciting and engaging learning activities every day. Discovery Education is the worldwide edtech leader whose state-of-the-art digital platform supports learning wherever it takes place.
Ever since its debut more than 20 years ago, Discovery Education Espresso has been known for its expansive treasury of digital resources, which includes videos, text, interactives, audio, worksheets and images that span all primary key stages, subjects and critical topics of today. Each month, Discovery Education adds new resources — including ready-to-use activities, age-appropriate news video from trusted partners and curated channels — to excite, engage, and connect school pupils to the real world.
Now, Discovery Education is building on its legacy as the leader in digital content by adding a host of new time-saving features to support teaching, creativity and professional growth. These new features include:
Quiz results display in real-time, empowering educators to measure participation, offer just-in-time feedback, correct responses and identify where pupils need extra support or challenge.
Pupils can now use QR codes for quick access. Administrators can bulk-issue these codes at the school level or teachers can issue codes for their own classrooms.
Together, these new features and enhancements support the creation of interactive learning experiences that spark curiosity, make classroom activities livelier and engaging, and provide the literacy and language supports that give every pupil the opportunity to have their “light bulb” moment.
“Integrating all the edtech resources stood-up to maintain the continuity of learning during the COVID-19 pandemic is a major challenge facing school leaders,” said Discovery Education’s Managing Director, Global Initiatives Howard Lewis. “The new features and enhancements we are announcing today help solve that challenge. The improved functionality of our flagship platform puts all the tools needed to engage pupils with digital content at educators’ fingertips and the work to boost our service’s ability to easily dovetail into school systems’ IT infrastructure makes it simple to merge our content and resources into the learning environments schools already have in place. Taken together, these features and enhancements will help schools improve the return on the edtech investment they made over the past year.”
Educators using Discovery Education Espresso and all Discovery Education resources benefit from the support of the Discovery Educator Network (DEN) Community . This global community of education professionals connects members in schools and around the world through social media, virtual conferences and in-person events, fostering valuable networking, idea sharing, and inspiration.
