Providing a Window to the World

The staff at District 62 have long recognized that using digital learning tools are vital to the student experience because “kids today are growing up in a digital world”.  However, while technology tools are important to students, without digital resources being integrated into the overall teaching and learning process, it is difficult to see the true benefits of a digital classroom.  
Des Plaines CCSD 62 partnered with Discovery Education to introduce Streaming Plus to all their schools. Integrating video, multimedia, and other tools from Streaming Plus across their curriculum, District 62 teachers were able to dive deeper into topics and provide students with a more in-depth understanding of the concepts.  
Today, Streaming Plus is used across the curriculum to bring the real world into the classroom and to enable students to see and experience things they would not otherwise be able to. Learn More About Des Plaines 62's Success.
