Discovery Education

Helping to cultivate curiosity in the classroom.

About Discovery Education

Discovery Education is the global leader in standards-based digital content for K- 12, transforming teaching and learning with award-winning digital textbooks, multimedia content, professional development, and the largest professional learning community of its kind. Serving 4.5 million educators and over 50 million students.

The mission

  • Raise primary and secondary teachers’ awareness of Discovery Education’s resources
  • Increase brand awareness in UK schools
  • PPC, display and social media campaigns targeted at the education sector

Inspiring exploration

As a strong worldwide brand but a newcomer to the UK education market, an objective was to increase awareness of Discovery Education within primary and secondary schools.

We encouraged teachers to engage with the brand online and explore their excellent product offering of more than 19,500 digital resources and over 1 million apps created and published by students.

Encourage innovative partnerships

We started by positioning Discovery Education as an empowering partner to educators which seemed to resonate with teachers. We communicated that not only do the quality tools Discovery Education provide make the classroom environment more engaging, but also simplify keeping teaching content up-to-date.

We ensured that teachers could see innovative lesson plans, video, games and activity resources were only a registration away, and this offering proved compelling.
