Take Teaching to the Next Level Where Microscope and Mouse Meet Connecting to a Global Community of Educators Matt’s Media Tips 4-23 It just keeps getting better and better We love feedback. In fact, we take feedback from educators around the world every day. We use that feedback to improve the features and functionality of Discovery Education over the summer. And we’re super excited about the new school year’s enhancements. So much so that we’re giving you, yeah you on the other side of this screen, the chance to get a sneak peek.

We’ll also examine a presentation format that may be good to use with your secondary students. And we’ll explore two web 2.0 tools that add in sharing and social functionality to your presentations along the way. If you’re reading this edition, you’re probably already familiar with embedding video and audio into your PowerPoint presentations. If that is something new - very cool. Because whether this concept is new or old - we’ve got you covered. Click on the word “Help” in the upper right-hand corner of your Discovery Education screen. Then simply start typing the word “Embed” into your Help search bar. Before you’ve even finished typing our intelligent help section will guess what you want. Click on the words, “Embed videos in PowerPoint” to get onscreen instructions or even a step-by-step how-to video. Already a pro? Fantastic. There’s your next inservice presentation! FYI - Our Help section does that all the time - try typing “Closed Captioning” one time to see lots of neat tips.
