Discovery Education Selected by California’s Fontana Unified School District to Help Five Elementary Schools Reach “Moonshot” Goal of Enhancing STEM Education

— New Digital Content and Professional Learning Opportunities from Discovery Education Empower District Educators to Create Immersive STEM and Math Learning Experiences–

Silver Spring, MD (August 21, 2019) — California’s Fontana Unified School District (FUSD) announced today it has selected Discovery Education to support the enhancement of STEM and Math education in the school system.  In this new phase of FUSD’s multiyear partnership with Discovery Education, educators in five district elementary schools will receive access to engaging STEM-focused digital content and sustained professional learning opportunities, and all 6th, 7th and 8th grade Math teachers will begin integrating the company’s digital curriculum into Math instruction.  Discovery Education is the global leader in standards-aligned digital curriculum resources, engaging content, and professional learning for K-12 classrooms, and has provided FUSD educators district-wide access to its award-winning digital content services since 2015.

Located in Southern California’s Inland Empire, FUSD’s 45 schools serve approximately 41,000 students in a rapidly growing community 50 miles east of Los Angeles. While each school supports the district’s goal of ensuring every student is prepared for success in college, career, and life, every FUSD school or department is also challenged with reaching a “moonshot” goal designed to help propel the district into the future. At a recent district retreat, school leaders from Canyon Crest Elementary School, Randall Pepper Elementary School, Shadow Hills Elementary School, South Tamarind Elementary School, and Tokay Elementary School chose enhancing STEM education as their “moonshot” goal.  To support this endeavor, those schools worked with FUSD’s administration to find an external partner that could provide the needed resources and professional learning.  Following a rigorous review process, FUSD selected Discovery Education to provide the digital content and professional development support needed to build cultures of STEM teaching and learning in the five participating schools.

“Fontana Unified School District is incredibly proud of our five-year track record of continuous student improvement,” said FUSD’s Director Professional Development and Teacher Support Adele Thomas.  “However, each member of the district staff knows we cannot rest on our previous achievements.  To continue our trajectory of improvement, FUSD needs to push forward with both bold ideas and dedicated, high-quality partners.  We are excited to continue our partnership with Discovery Education, and we are look forward to working closely with their talented team on this project.”

STEM Connect is among the new Discovery Education digital services teachers from the five schools participating in this initiative will shortly begin integrating into classroom instruction.  STEM Connect is a cutting-edge, web-based, interdisciplinary K-8 supplemental resource. STEM Connect helps students develop the creative, critical thinking, communication, and collaboration skills they need for success beyond graduation, and was recently awarded the prestigious CODiE award by the Software and Information Industry Association. Featuring flexible, modular learning units, STEM Connect provides students an easy-to-follow educational experience that includes real-world challenges, career connections, and hands-on activities.

Educators at the five schools participating in this initiative will also receive sustained, job-embedded, professional development certified as meeting the Global STEM Alliance (GSA) STEM Education Framework, which was developed by the New York Academy of Sciences and SRI Education. During these interactive professional learning opportunities, educators will learn how to maximize their new digital resources, develop high-quality STEM lessons, scale STEM instruction in their schools, and create centers of STEM excellence.

In addition, educators at every FUSD 6th, 7th and 8th classroom will also soon begin using Discovery Education’s Math Techbook for teaching and learning.  An immersive digital curriculum, Discovery Education’s family of Techbooks are aligned to rigorous standards and updated regularly at no cost. Each Techbook provides educators with detailed lesson plans, embedded formative assessments, hands-on activities, digital simulations, and robust teacher supports that deeply engage students in learning. The Math Techbook connects students to math through real-world problems, helping all learners develop long-lasting mastery of mathematical concepts. In addition, the Math Techbook has been independently verified by EdReports.org to meet the highest levels of mathematical content and pedagogy.

FUSD educators districtwide will also continue receiving support from the Discovery Education Community. A global community of education professionals, the Discovery Education Community connects members across school systems and around the world through social media, virtual conferences, and in-person events, fostering valuable networking, idea sharing, and inspiration.

“Discovery Education is proud to support the five FUSD schools participating in this unique STEM initiative and we look forward to working with 6th, 7th and 8th Math teachers across the district as they integrate our services into instruction,” said Jeree Gooing, Discovery Education Partnerships Manager.  “Together, we will create the unique culture of STEM teaching and learning we know will help FUSD students succeed beyond graduation.”

In addition, the service’s up-to-date, high-quality, and ever-growing digital content collections, as well as a library of immersive virtual field trips, are drawn from trusted partners.

Discovery Education Experience’s engaging content is complemented by a rich library of creative, research-based instructional strategies for integrating digital media in meaningful, effective, and practical ways.  Aligned to McREL International’s 6-Phase Model of Learning, these strategies foster skill development, complement different types of content, and are conveniently paired with content at the point of use. The new Discovery Education Experience also offers embedded content creation and real-time collaboration features through the Studio suite of tools.

“The Social Studies curriculum that we utilize in the Newburgh Enlarged City School District imbeds 2-7 Discovery Education resources per unit in our K-8 classrooms. These resources enrich lessons and provide our scholars with more rounded and meaningful learning experiences,” said NECSD Director of Social Studies Amanda Greene.  “Being able to harness the streaming options through Discovery Education moves our district a step closer toward digital convergence and provides opportunities for educators to develop creative blended learning strategies.”

NECSD educators using Discovery Education Experience will also receive robust professional development from Discovery Education experts. Through these interactive professional learning opportunities, participants will learn best practices for integrating technology and digital content into teaching and learning in ways that will maximize the power of their new resources, increase student engagement in instruction, and improve students’ academic achievement.

NECSD’s educators will also receive support from the Discovery Education Community. A global community of education professionals, the Discovery Education Community connects members across school systems and around the world through social media, virtual conferences, and in-person events, fostering valuable networking, idea sharing, and inspiration.

“Newburgh Enlarged City School District is taking a leadership position in transforming social studies education in the state of New York, and Discovery Education is proud to support their efforts,” said Discovery Education Partnerships Senior Manager Sara Peters. “Superintendent Padilla and NECSD’s talented team of administrators and teachers are creating a new model of digital social studies instruction, and we look forward to aiding this innovative initiative.”

Virginia’s Henry County Public Schools Launches New Partnership with Discovery Education Supporting District’s Strategic Plan Inspire 2025

— Digital Resources and Professional Learning Opportunities Coming to Classrooms This School Year Set to Energize Technology-Rich Learning Environments–

Silver Spring, MD (July 11, 2019) — Virginia’s Henry County Public Schools (HCPS) recently announced a new multiyear partnership with Discovery Education, the global leader in standards-aligned digital curriculum resources, engaging content, and professional learning for K-12 classrooms. This new collaboration supports the school system’s Inspire 2025 Strategic Plan, which is guiding the division’s efforts to provide all students high quality curriculum, instruction, and assessments that prepare them for future success.

One of the central goals of HCPS’s Inspire 2025 plan is the development and launch of an engaging, innovative, and rigorous curriculum that prepares all students for college, career, and citizenship. To help meet this goal, Discovery Education is providing classrooms division wide access to the latest generation of the award-winning Discovery Education Streaming Plus, Discovery Education Experience.  This content will be delivered to students through the division’s recently implemented 1:1 initiative.

Discovery Education Experience supports instruction across all K-12 curricular areas. Through curated, personalized, one-of-a-kind digital curriculum resources delivered to the educator based on their preferences, Discovery Education Experience helps busy teachers save time and more easily differentiate instruction.  The experiential and highly relevant content within Discovery Education Experience helps students relate to and better understand subject matter, driving deeper engagement and learning. In addition, the service’s up-to-date, high-quality, and ever-growing digital content collections, as well as a library of immersive virtual field trips, are drawn from trusted partners.

STEMFormation will support the integration of  Discovery Education’s STEM Connect service into Fieldale-Collinsville Middle School’s classrooms.  STEM Connect is a cutting-edge, web-based, interdisciplinary K-8 supplemental resource that helps students develop the creative, critical thinking, communication, and collaboration skills they need for success beyond graduation, and was recently awarded the prestigious CODiE award by the Software and Information Industry Association. Featuring flexible, modular learning units, STEM Connect provides students an easy-to-follow educational experience that includes real-world challenges, career connections, and hands-on activities.

“Through our 1:1 learning initiative, the Henry County Public Schools have created a technology rich infrastructure districtwide,” said Sandy Strayer, HCPS Superintendent. “Through this new collaboration with Discovery Education, this infrastructure will now come alive with the right digital content that will create the modern classroom experiences that will engage today’s students.”

West Virginia’s Kanawha County Schools Deepens Partnership with Discovery Education to Maximize District’s Ambitious 1:1 Program

–School System Set to Begin Integrating the New Discovery Education Experience and Social Studies Techbook Into Classroom Instruction at the Beginning of the 2019-2020 School Year–

Silver Spring, MD (July 1, 2019)Kanawha County Schools (KCS), the largest school system in West Virginia, announced today it is deepening its partnership with Discovery Education, the global leader in standards-aligned digital curriculum resources, engaging content, and professional learning for K-12 classrooms. In the latest phase of this collaboration, Discovery Education will add a host of new digital curriculum resources to the district’s content collection, bolstering KCS’s 1:1 program and creating engaging, real-world learning experiences for students districtwide.

Serving more than 26,000 students each school day, KCS’s talented educators are dedicated to delivering to the region’s diverse student body a rich, world-class education that sets learners up for success in the future. Supporting the district’s efforts to prepare students for the world beyond the classroom is a trove of digital resources, including the middle school, earth science, and biology editions of Discovery Education’s award-winning Science Techbook series, which are available to teachers and students through the district’s learning management system.

Today’s announcement from KCS signals the start of a new stage in the school system’s six-year partnership with Discovery Education. Beginning at the start of the 2019-2020 school year, K-12 teachers and students districtwide will return to the classroom and begin using the latest generation of the award-winning Discovery Education Streaming Plus, Discovery Education Experience, for teaching and learning.

Discovery Education Experience supports instruction across all K-12 curricular areas. Through curated, personalized, one-of-a-kind digital curriculum resources delivered to the educator based on their preferences, Discovery Education Experience helps busy teachers save time and more easily differentiate instruction.  The experiential and highly relevant content within Discovery Education Experience helps students relate to and better understand subject matter, driving deeper engagement and learning. In addition, the service’s up-to-date, high-quality, and ever-growing digital content collections, as well as a library of immersive virtual field trips, are drawn from trusted partners.

Discovery Education Experience’s engaging content is complemented by a rich library of creative, research-based instructional strategies for integrating digital media in meaningful, effective, and practical ways.  Aligned to McREL International’s 6-Phase Model of Learning, these strategies foster skill development, complement different types of content, and are conveniently paired with content at the point of use. The new Discovery Education Experience also offers embedded content creation and real-time collaboration features through the Studio suite of tools.

In addition, KCS educators in grades 6-8 will begin integrating Discovery Education’s Social Studies Techbook into instruction this coming Fall.  The Social Studies Techbook uses an inquiry-based instructional approach that emphasizes informational text literacy, analytical writing, and problem-solving skills that students will apply in the classroom and beyond. This revolutionary digital curriculum is standards-aligned and features exciting content that strengthens literacy, critical thinking, and citizenship skills. Social Studies Techbook allows students to approach inquiry through the 5Es: Engage, Explore, Explain, Extend, and Evaluate. From stories of ancient cultures to current events, this comprehensive digital textbook takes concepts off the pages and brings lessons to life.

To help KCS educators integrate their new digital resources into classroom instruction in the coming school year, Discovery Education will provide district educators numerous professional development opportunities. Through these interactive professional learning opportunities, participants will learn best practices for integrating technology and digital content into teaching and learning in ways that will maximize the power of their new resources, increase student engagement in instruction, and improve students’ academic achievement.

“The integration of these digital resources from Discovery Education into our powerful learning management system will help students and teachers realize the full value of our 1:1 initiative,” said Rosie Rhodes, Kanawha County Schools’ Secondary Science Curriculum Specialist. “We couldn’t be more pleased to turn to our partners at Discovery Education to aid in this effort, which is giving students valuable tools to prepare them for the challenges of the 21st century.”

KCS educators will also continue to receive support from the Discovery Education Community. A global community of education professionals, the Discovery Education Community connects members across school systems and around the world through social media, virtual conferences, and in-person events, fostering valuable networking, idea sharing, and inspiration.

“Through their continued investment in digital curriculum resources and smart technologies, KCS is creating a powerful, flexible learning environment for all their learners,” said Discovery Education Partnerships Senior Manager Kelly Burleson. “We look forward to working more closely with the staff and educators of this inspirational school district.”

After submitting a short video communicating the science behind a possible innovation to solve an everyday problem, these young scientists rose to the top of the competition and were selected over hundreds of others, because of their science acumen, innovative thinking and exceptional communication skills demonstrated.

“The ‘3M Young Scientist Challenge’ supports young innovators who have demonstrated a passion for science, the perseverance to see their creative discoveries unfold, and a desire to improve the world around us,” said Denise Rutherford, senior vice president, corporate affairs, 3M. “We are excited to recognize this new generation of scientists as part of 3M’s ongoing commitment to STEM-equity and science advocacy for all students.

All 10 finalists will receive $1,000 and a trip to 3M’s Innovation Center in St. Paul, Minn., where they will participate in the final competition on October 28 and 29.
