— Program Provides Student Certification and Kicks Off with National Educator Sweepstakes Offering Educators and Parents Chance to Win $10,000 Grant for their Elementary School —

WASHINGTON, D.C. (November 13, 2014) – Intel Security, in partnership with Discovery Education, the leading provider of digital content and professional development, today announced the Intel® Security Digital Safety Program, a three-year  national education initiative designed to teach children to “Think Before You Link” and make safer decisions when using the Internet. The first and only Discovery Education-supported initiative focusing on cybersecurity education, the Intel Security Digital Safety Program will equip educators, students and parents with the tools they need to be confident, safe digital citizens. 

As part of the program, educators and parents who pledge their commitment and spread the word about online safety have the opportunity to enter a national sweepstakes.  Now through March 2015, eligible participants can enter for a chance to win cash prizes towards strengthening the digital safety and awareness programs at an elementary school of his/her choice.  One grand prize winner will be awarded a $10,000 grant, one second place winner will be awarded a $5,000 grant, and ten honorable mention winners will be awarded a $1,000 grant each to benefit the elementary school of their choice.  A special drawing will be held for educators in which ten winners will receive a trip to the 2015 ISTE conference in Philadelphia, an Asus Transformer Ultrabook, a two in one tablet/notebook, or McAfee LiveSafe™ service, a leading digital security solution for consumers.  

“Teaching our kids to be safe and savvy online is one of the most important things we can be doing,” said Michelle Dennedy, chief privacy officer of McAfee. “If we’re successful in these kinds of endeavors, we’ll be contributing not only to kids’ personal well-being but also to their future education and careers – all of which will spur economic development.”

“We are delighted to begin this multi-year partnership with Intel Security, bringing the power of their expertise in cybersecurity to bear in creating first-of-its-kind digital-safety curricula,” said Bill Goodwyn, President and CEO of Discovery Education. “This engaging, new approach to security education will empower students to be responsible digital citizens, and provide them with the skills needed to recognize possible online threatening situations.” 

The Intel Security Digital Safety Program will provide educators with standards-aligned resources, including self-paced lessons for use in the classroom to help engage students on timely, relevant topics like Internet safety and security.  At the conclusion of each module, students will receive cybersecurity certificate acknowledging they’ve completed the program and will act as a responsible cyber citizen.  Additionally, parents can access the program’s at-home family resources to further reinforce the importance of online safety to their children.

Through Intel Security and Discovery Education’s partnership, the Intel Security Digital Safety Program offers resources designed to teach students ages 8-11 in the United States and Canada ways to keep personally identifiable information (PII) private online, create stronger passwords, and how to deal with cyberbullies. In the partnership’s second year, the program is planned to expand to reach ages 11-14, and in its third year the program is expected to expand globally to offer its resources in the United Kingdom and Ireland.

The first module, available today, will be focused on cyber safety and teaches children ways to keep their devices and personal information safe. According to the McAfee “2014 Teens and the Screen” study conducted by Intel Security June 3, 2014, 14 percent of youth between the ages of 10 and 18 have posted their home address online, while only 61 percent have enabled privacy settings on their social profiles. It’s more important than ever to educate children about online safety and why it’s important not to overshare and to pay attention to settings and profiles.

“In today’s digital age, it is crucial that students understand how to act responsibly and protect themselves online,” said Susan Holiday, principal at Gladys Noon Spellman Elementary School in Prince George’s County Public Schools, MD. “I am thrilled that Intel Security and Discovery Education have come together to provide educators with important resources to help them inform students about appropriate online behavior.” 

Intel Security has already had huge success in equipping members of the community with some simple Internet safety tips. Since 2011, more than 250,000 school-aged children and parents worldwide participated in the McAfee Online Safety employee volunteer program (McAfee is now a part of Intel Security). With the support of Discovery Education, Intel Security hopes to make its curriculum available to millions of children, parents and educators around the globe.

The Intel Security Digital Safety Program is being launched during the fall policy conference of the Committee for Economic Development (CED) at the Willard Intercontinental Hotel in Washington, D.C. CED is a nonprofit, nonpartisan, business-led public policy organization that delivers well-researched analysis and reasoned solutions to the nation’s most critical issues.

–  Offers Middle School Students an Exclusive In-Depth Look at Earth’s Natural Resources While Reinforcing Real-World Math and Science Concepts Within STEM Careers –

SILVER SPRING, Md. (November 10, 2014)Discovery Education, the leading provider of digital content and professional development for K-12 classrooms, and Freeport-McMoRan, a leading international natural resource company, will host an interactive live virtual field trip on November 13, 2014, at 1:00 p.m. EST for students nationwide. The Dig Into Mining: Story of Copper live virtual field trip will give middle school students a front row seat to nature’s geological wonders and exclusive access to Freeport-McMoRan’s leading geologists and engineers who aim to inspire students to explore earth’s natural resources and the importance of copper in our everyday lives.

Hosted live from Freeport-McMoRan’s Arizona facility, this virtual field trip is part of Discovery Education and Freeport-McMoRan’s overall “Dig Into Mining: The Story of Copper” program, which equips educators, students and families with free resources designed to explain how metals are relevant in everyday life, and to highlight various science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) careers available in the rapidly growing copper industry. During this virtual field trip, students will go behind-the-scenes of a working copper mine to learn about the uses of transition metals like copper, gold and molybdenum, and meet with a Freeport-McMoRan geologist and mine planning engineer as they showcase real-world examples of how STEM is used in the workplace. Students and educators may submit questions in advance on the program website for a chance to have them answered live during the event. To register and submit questions for this event, please visit: http://www.digintomining.com/virtualfieldtrips

“I’m excited for my students to see first-hand how the skills they are learning in our classroom are also used by professionals in the copper industry,” said Tracie Belk, teacher at Shorecrest Preparatory School, St. Petersburg, Fla. “This virtual field trip will highlight the relevance and importance of science and math in my students’ daily lives, and open the door for them to explore future careers in STEM.”

“Freeport-McMoRan’s Morenci Operation is truly a marvel of STEM skills in practice,” said Tracy Bame, president of the Freeport-McMoRan Foundation. “This year’s virtual field trip will highlight just the tip of the iceberg of the STEM expertise necessary to discover and mine for copper.”

In addition to the virtual field trip, Discovery Education and Freeport-McMoRan’s program provides middle school students, educators and families with a comprehensive online site that includes hands-on resources to inspire students to explore the world of copper and learn how the earth’s natural resources shape their lives geologically, societally and economically. The program also offers 6th-8th grade educators standards-based classroom tools and lesson plans designed to encourage students’ development of key STEM, critical thinking and problem solving skills. Dig Into Mining: The Story of Copper’s family extensions allow students to share their classroom learnings with family members at home through insightful conversation about geology and the earth, and match their skills and interests to exciting opportunities within the copper industry.

TOYOTA AND DISCOVERY EDUCATION CHALLENGE EDUCATORS AND STUDENTS NATIONWIDE TO CREATE ORIGINAL VIDEOS PROMOTING TEEN DRIVER SAFETY

– For the 4th Year in a Row, Toyota and Discovery Education Will Reward a $15,000 Scholarship to the Winner of TeenDrive365 Video Challenge for the Best Idea to Get People to Drive Safely –

Silver Spring, Md. [November 6, 2014] – Toyota and Discovery Education, the leading provider of digital content and professional development for K-12 classrooms, today launched the 2014-2015 TeenDrive365 Video Challenge (formerly known as the Toyota Teen Driver Video Challenge).  Now in its fourth year, the Video Challenge invites teens across the country to create short videos to inspire their friends to drive safely and avoid distractions. 

Ten finalists will be chosen and their entries will be posted online for public vote.  The winner of the public vote will receive the People’s Choice Award along with a $5,000 cash prize and a trip to see a taping of a Velocity network show. 

Additionally, a panel of judges from Discovery Education, Toyota, educators and community leaders will select a first, second and third place winner.  The winners will be selected based on the creativity, content and presentation of their videos.  The grand prize winner will receive a $15,000 cash prize and work with a Discovery film crew to reshoot their video as a professional, TV-ready PSA.  The second place winner will be awarded a $10,000 cash prize along with a trip to attend a taping of a Velocity network show and the third place winner will receive a $7,500 cash prize.

Last year, more than 1,000 videos were submitted by teens from all 50 states.  Teens can submit entries today through March 16, 2015.  Additional details can be found www.TeenDrive365InSchool.com.

“When it comes to the critical issue of safe driving, teens can be one of the biggest influences on other teens.  This contest allows teens to make their peers aware of the very serious topic of distracted driving, in their own way – using creativity, innovation and ingenuity,” said Dr. Terry Grier, Houston Independent School District’s Superintendent of Schools. “Through this partnership, Toyota and Discovery Education are empowering students, parents, and teachers to have the critical conversations about the life changing choices teens can make behind the wheel.”

The program is part of TeenDrive365 (www.TeenDrive365.com), Toyota’s comprehensive campaign that offers online tools, expert advice, local events and social media elements to inspire parents and teens to be safer drivers together.  TeenDrive365 builds on the programs and resources Toyota has offered for over a decade. Since TeenDrive365’s launch last November over 1 million people have visited its web site, and over 20,000 have taken Toyota’s safe driving pledge. 

In addition to the Video Challenge, TeenDrive365 will continue to offer the same popular resources and online tools it launched last year, such as The Cost of Driving Calculator, which helps parents teach their teens about the financial implications of life behind the wheel, Toyota’s Mutual Driving Agreement, which allows teens and parents to set expectations for safer behaviors behind the wheel, and Heads Up!, a driving simulator game which demonstrates the dangers of multitasking while driving by presenting the player with a series of challenges they have to complete while steering a Toyota vehicle around a practice course. Safe driving events are also offered around the country; including behind the wheel defensive driving courses and teen safety clinics in partnership with local Toyota dealerships.

“With the reduction of safe driving programs from the school day, Toyota’s efforts to empower teens to make the right choices behind the wheel are more important than ever,” said Bill Goodwyn, President and CEO at Discovery Education.  “We know that when it comes the issue of safe driving, teens play a major role in influencing the behavior of their peers.  We are proud to partner with Toyota and educators nationwide on this critically important endeavor and know that their work is literally saving lives.”

Last year’s winning video featured a young boy who visits a tarot card reader and learns he has the power to dramatically change his future by avoiding driving distractions when he becomes a teenager. You can view the video at www.teendrive365inschool.com/teens/video-archive.

Offered by USC Shoah Foundation and Discovery Education in support of the official 70th anniversary commemoration of the liberation of the former German Nazi concentration and death camp.

LOS ANGELES, Nov. 06, 2014 – Twenty-five teachers from around the world have been chosen by USC Shoah Foundation – The Institute for Visual History and Education and Discovery Education to participate in a unique professional development program in Poland as part of Auschwitz: The Past is Present, a global communications and education program that will support the official observance of the 70th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz on Jan. 27, 2015. This unique educator professional development opportunity is just one component of the education initiative between Shoah Foundation and Discovery Education.  The Auschwitz-Birkenau State Museum and the International Auschwitz Council are the organizers of the official commemoration event.

The educators from 11 different countries representing four continents will attend a four-day workshop designed to deepen their understanding of the historical landscape of Poland before, during and after the Holocaust and increase participant knowledge of authentic sites including Auschwitz-Birkenau.

During the program teachers will work with IWitness, USC Shoah Foundation’s educational website that brings testimonies from survivors and witnesses of genocide, including the Holocaust, from the Institute’s Visual History Archive to secondary schools via multimedia-learning activities. Sixteen activities based on testimony from survivors and witnesses of Auschwitz will be available in IWitness by the official commemoration. Four new activities have been released to date.  Teachers will also have the unprecedented opportunity to meet with a large number of Holocaust survivors prior to attending the commemoration ceremony at Auschwitz-Birkenau State Museum.

“Survivors shared their stories because they understood how vital it was that future generations never forget what happened at places like Auschwitz,” Said Dr. Kori Street, USC Shoah Foundation Director of Education. “By bringing teachers to a place where so many atrocities occurred is a way to show survivors that we take seriously our responsibility of keeping their voices strong forever.”

The Auschwitz: The Past is Present ITeach Professional Development program will begin in Warsaw on Jan. 23, 2015 at the Museum of the History of Polish Jews and conclude at the official ceremonies at the Auschwitz-Birkenau State Museum on Jan. 27, 2015.

By working together on this important project, USC Shoah Foundation and Discovery Education are filling an ever-present need to keep history alive for generations to come. Interacting with testimony as a primary source in IWitness shows young people how the past informs our present and what this means to students today.

USC Shoah Foundation and Discovery Education are also creating an exclusive Virtual Field Trip to bring the 70th anniversary commemoration directly into classrooms to provide students everywhere with a deeper understanding of the continued importance of the Holocaust.

Available to schools across the United States and globally in the spring of 2015, the Virtual Field Trip will provide students with firsthand accounts from survivors returning to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz, and motivate them to engage in a meaningful dialogue about history and its relevance today.
