Silver Spring, Md. (Friday, August 21, 2020) Georgia’s Atlanta Public Schools has selected Discovery Education to support the creation of more equitable learning experiences online, in the classroom, or wherever instruction is taking place in the coming school year. Through this new partnership, educators across the district will have access to Discovery Education Experience, a suite of new K-12 digital resources that they may leverage as they create high-quality learning opportunities for their students. Discovery Education is the global leader in standards-aligned digital curriculum resources, engaging content, and professional learning for K-12 classrooms worldwide.
Discovery Education Experience is a flexible K-12 learning platform that connects educators to a vast collection of compelling high-quality, standards-aligned content, ready-to-use digital lessons, and professional learning resources. Together, these resources give educators everything they need to facilitate instruction in any learning environment and create lasting educational impact.
Discovery Education’s team continues adding, contextualizing, and organizing exciting new content and timely resources to Experience each month in response to current events and the ever-evolving needs of educators. These resources, sourced from trusted partners, are aligned to state and national standards, and help educators bring the outside world into teaching and learning every day.
Finally, Experience is designed to work within school systems’ existing infrastructure and workflows. Through expanded partnerships with Microsoft Teams, Google Classroom, Schoology, Canvas, and now Clever, integrating Experience into existing IT architecture is easier than ever.
Atlanta Public Schools is the latest school system to select Discovery Education Experience to support student learning in the 2020-2021 school year. Other school systems choosing Discovery Education Experience to support in-class or remote learning include Topeka Public Schools, Corpus Christi Independent School District, and the Nevada Department of Education.
APS’s partnership with Discovery Education also continues district teachers’ access to 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 very excited to continue its decades-long relationship with the Atlanta Public Schools,” said Will Ward, Discovery Education’s Manager of Education Partnerships. “We are proud to serve the district’s educators and students, and look forward to supporting their efforts to provide all students equitable access to engaging digital learning experiences.”
