Discovery Education Streaming Plus

Discovery Education Streaming Plus is a comprehensive digital service that motivates students to learn and helps teachers in every content area to transform their instruction. Containing thousands of standards-aligned resources, Streaming Plus provides you with the tools to teach your students to think critically about the content they use, see, and experience in their daily lives and to ask questions about the world around them.

Bringing the Real World Into the Classroom

Powerful, Engaging Content

Build students’ mastery in interpreting, understanding, and evaluating information across all subject areas and support multiple learning styles with this powerful and inclusive multimedia resource. Designed and driven by state standards, Streaming Plus uses engaging multimedia resources to add power to your lessons while supporting rigorous curriculum requirements.

Put Students in Control of Their Learning

Centered around the student experience., Streaming Plus is designed to allow students to:
  • Build background knowledge through research
  • Engage and interact with different types of text, both print and digital media
  • Identify main ideas and key details
  • Critically evaluate the information to draw conclusions
  • Cite relevant evidence to support their answers
  • Become confident, self-directed learners

Our most popular student-centric feature, Board Builder, promotes independent learning by challenging students to be content producers. With Board Builder, students create virtual project boards using multimedia and text to synthesize their thinking and provide evidence of their understanding of a concept or problem. Boards can be shared with the teacher, classmates, parents, and even with classrooms across the country.

Tailored Professional Development

Learn how to use the resources in the most effective way with in-product professional development modules and on-site professional development opportunities.


Discovery Education Streaming Plus is an annual subscription based service and may be purchased for an individual school or an entire school district.

What Administrators Are Saying

"Our kids are very technology savvy and they understand how it works and that has allowed us to bring, at their fingertips, some of the things they like doing best, which is just using technology. It's fun to them and they're learning at the same time. So, I think it's certainly motivating them. It's increased their interest, increased their engagement, and I think in most cases it has increased their achievement in the classroom."

"Discovery Education Streaming is an amazing resource for teachers and students. It allows students to explore and create in the classroom as well as at home, and can be life-changing for teachers if they utilize it in all of its capabilities."
