Excellent bank of resources. Unfortunately some resources we used were removed when you updated - it would have been helpful to have them archived for a while. Not all have been replaced with similar options.

Reply from Discovery Education Espresso:Thanks for taking the time to leave a review Davina, it's very much appreciated. We did have to retire some content recently as we no longer had rights for this, however our content team are always looking to update and replace content to ensure you have the best materials. We've asked your Account Manager to get in touch regarding any resources you are specifically missing. Thanks again!
Davina found Discovery Education Espresso:
  • Slightly reduces teacher workload
    It saves time when looking for safe, quality online resources.
  • Slightly improves teaching efficiency
    It can often be used to reinforce what we are teaching.
  • Moderately builds student knowledge
    The educational videos and follow up quizzes for some videos are great for teaching new knowledge and then seeing what the children have understood.
