What is Discovery Experience?

Discovery Experience is a flexible K-12 learning platform, that provides over 200,000 resources including high-quality content, ready-to-use digital lessons, unique collaboration tools, and professional learning resources. It is built for all learners, grade levels, subject areas, and interests. Resources include grab-and-go lessons, student activity videos, and over 1,000 templates and research-based strategies—all ready to use with students in-person or remotely.

Included in the discovery experience, is Discovery Studio. This is an authoring tool gives students and teachers the power to build their own lessons and presentations. Further, students can demonstrate their understanding no matter where they’re working and teachers can quickly check for understanding and assess learning gaps. Culturally authentic material and additional supports like closed captioning, video transcripts, translation options, and text-to-speech help you make learning accessible in an equitable way for diverse learners and adapt content to specific student needs.
