Prince George’s County Public Schools Recognized for Innovative Use of Digital Content

 

The following information was sent to us by ShaVonn McConnell: 

 

Discovery Education recognized Prince George’s County Public Schools (PGCPS) over the weekend for its innovative use of digital content to engage students in learning and improve achievement. PGCPS recently reached “two million views” of Discovery Education’s digital content. In recognition, Discovery Education representatives presented a Visionary District award to Superintendent Dr. William Hite during the 2011 Powering Up with Technology conference.

 

In recent years, PGCPS has enhanced the use of streaming video, podcasts, online textbooks and curriculum-related web resources. All schools in the district have access to Discovery Education resources.

 

Discovery Education’s digital content, which is available in more than half of all U.S. schools, captures the minds and imaginations of students by tapping into their natural curiosity and desire to learn. Through the service, teachers and students have access to a library of 150,000 resources that cover all curriculum areas and are aligned to state academic and testing standards. Designed to address multiple learning styles, Discovery Education’s digital content is scientifically shown to improve student achievement.
