While this week’s recognition by USCCF is quite recent, DE has long been pushing the boundaries of education since it was first launched in 2004. Bill Goodwyn, CEO and President of Discovery Education, recently spoke with HP Matter about the intersection of technology and education – and how his team has worked to move both the company and the industry forward. After reading through the interview, it’s not too hard to see why Discovery Education has been honored with the highly-regarded – and well-deserved – honor!
