Get ready for back to school with the latest from DE!

Whether you prefer made by DE or made by you, we’ve made it easier—and more intuitive—to find, build, and deliver compelling lessons that capture students’ attention, no matter what you’re teaching.

Easily Find Time-Saving Resources for Daily Lessons

From game-like interactives and ready-to-use activities to instructional strategies and professional learning support, easily find just what you need, right when you need it. Better search options and improved navigation through our new Explore page lets you browse by subject, then offers personalized suggestions based on your activity, grade levels, and topics of interest.

Get Creative with Studio

Start strong this back-to-school season with Studio—now with quicker workflow and a few other fun tweaks that will make this your favorite tool for daily instruction. Take advantage of tons of ready-to-use activities or build your own! With Studio, you can quickly modify a “Made by DE” instructional activity, start from a template using proven SOS strategies, or start from scratch and let your creativity flow.

Our latest updates give you the power to:

  • Quickly preview a Studio lesson or activity from the student perspective.
  • Use images as buttons for student navigation through the activity.
  • Try new, fun fonts and animated button options to liven up the lesson.

Ensure Time on Task and Promote Student Agency

The DE platform is delivering a brand-new student experience, just in time for the new school year. Your learners can now enjoy:

  • A refreshed Assignments section that makes it easier to prioritize, launch, and complete assignments.
  • Personalization options that let them jazz up the look and feel of their home page.
  • A new Explore page that helps them dive into DE resources with enhanced search filters and curated content collections.

And don’t forget, our lessons are easy to present for whole class instruction or you can assign and share through our integrations with the most widely used EdTech tools and learning management systems. Deliver lessons quickly and easily, no matter where learning is taking place!
