Building our boards with Board Builder

As part of Science instruction at St. Louis School, students make oral presentations to their classmates on a regular basis. This year students have been taking their presentations to a higher level by using a computer tool called Board Builder from Discovery Education. It allows students to create a comprehensive visual aide with text, photographs, audio, video and animated content to assist in conveying concepts. The board can be shared electronically with teachers and are accessible to students anytime, anywhere through their school’s Discovery Education subscription. It is designed for flexibility, differentiation and provides an opportunity to work at the student’s pace. So far, students are enjoying this new tool and finding it engaging, easy to use and fun!
