Discovery Ed Board Builder

What is is?

Board Builder is a tool within Discovery Education that allows students and teachers to create online interactive "posters" complete with videos, visuals, and links from inside and outside of Discovery.

  • If you are familiar with GlogsterEDU, Board Builder seeks to accomplish a similar goal. If your school already subscribes to Discovery Education, it's a built-in feature available at no additional cost.
  • Students can choose backgrounds, text formats, templates and color schemes.
  • Students can tell their story using a variety of multimedia resources. Any Discovery Education resource can be added to the board and students can further personalize their work by linking web-based resources and uploading their own images, videos, audio and documents (lots and lots of file types are supported).
  • When students share their work, it isn't visible to the class until it is approved by the teacher. One of the best parts of this feature is that there is a built-in feedback tool. This enables the teacher to leave personalized feedback for the student/student group, and it is a great way to challenge students to dig deeper before finalizing their work.
