When schools abruptly shifted to online learning in March of 2020, a flurry of announcements about free digital learning resources followed. Gradually, schools returned to hybrid learning and, now, most districts are back to full in-person learning. But a new move puts 500 daily resources into teachers’ hands for free, no matter where students are learning.
In an effort to continue its support of educators during the COVID-19 pandemic, Discovery Education–an edtech partner offering a digital platform designed to support learning wherever it takes place–announced today that it will offer approximately 500 daily classroom activities available to teachers nationwide at no cost throughout the school year. Available until June of 2022, the free activities are designed to be quickly integrated into instruction no matter where it is taking place.
“Through my own experience in public education, I know that teaching is a demanding job under the best of circumstances. However, COVID-19 has brought additional challenges to the profession,” said Lance Rougeux, Discovery Education’s Vice President of Instructional Design. “So, to save educators time, ease their burden a bit, and provide some fun, instructional inspiration, Discovery Education is proud to share these daily learning activities with every K-8 teacher in the U.S. for the entire 2021-2022 school year.”
