Discovery Education has partnered with management information system (MIS) integration specialists Wonde to make it easier for teachers to access their digital learning services and get greater value from their subscriptions.
This new collaboration means teachers will now be able to create and assign resources and learning activities to individuals, groups or a whole class and to check students’ understanding through multiple choice quizzes, enabling teachers to more easily differentiate learning, and support every child whether learning is taking place in class or remotely.
This new partnership will also save time for school administrators as schools will automatically be able to create teacher and student accounts for all Discovery Education services, eliminating the need to manually create and maintain teacher and classroom lists. There is no charge to schools for this new service, and as part of the agreement, schools who do not currently use Wonde can sign up to this element of the Wonde portal free of charge.
This new functionality is available as part of Discovery Education Experience, a brand-new platform available to schools this Autumn. Bringing a fresh new look and the personalisation and assessment tools schools have been asking for, Discovery Education Experience brings together high-quality content from Discovery Education services with customisation, collaboration and personalisation tools to engage with every learner, wherever the learning is taking place. This upgraded experience is available to schools as part of their existing Discovery Education subscription.
Howard Lewis, Managing Director for Discovery Education UK said, “We are always looking for ways to free up teachers’ time and allow them to focus their energies on students, particularly given the challenges of the past few months. This new partnership with Wonde allows us to provide teachers with a simple and efficient way to personalise learning for every pupil and ensure they are maximising the value they are getting from their Discovery Education services.”
Jon Coleman, co-founder at Wonde said: “Wonde is thrilled to be working with Discovery Education to help schools more efficiently use the services they have subscribed to. Wonde specialises in providing schools with a secure way to share data with their suppliers. Both Wonde and Discovery Education are used by thousands of schools and this new partnership will help teachers easily and efficiently support their pupils.”
