Discovery Box is a tool to collect items in a virtual box. The purpose is to provide you the "tools to build up an argument or description of an event, person, or historical period". It is literally a virtual box with different compartments that you can use to sort items that you need for your argument, description, or project. You can display text, videos, audio, links, and more in your box and use different compartments of the box to organize things by different topics.
There are teacher resources, case studies of it in use, and a gallery of Discovery boxes that you can view.
I see it as a tool for students to use when working on a project to collect different resources and information in one place so that they can sort and organize it.
The boxes can be displayed as a project, or the materials gathered can be used in a different presentation format.
