Massachusetts’ Andover Public Schools (APS) announce the selection of Discovery Education Experience to support child-centered learning in K-12 classrooms districtwide. Created by Discovery Education, Discovery Education Experience is a digital service supplementing instruction across all K–12 curricular areas.
Discovery Education Experience—the latest iteration of Discovery Education’s Streaming Plus service—assists educators in creating real-world learning opportunities. The service’s standards-aligned content is assignable and can be bookmarked and saved for later use and remixed to meet the varying needs of diverse student populations in a safe and secure environment.
Research suggests students in elementary, middle and high school that have regular access to Discovery Education’s K-12 digital content service have higher attendance rates and are outpacing their peers on state assessments in reading, mathematics, and social studies. Access to Discovery Education’s supplemental content services can be linked to higher student achievement, especially for racial/ethnic minorities and students impacted by poverty, disabilities, and limited English proficiency.
To help APS educators integrate their new digital resources into classroom instruction in the coming school year, Discovery Education will provide district teachers professional learning opportunities.
This new partnership also offers APS teachers access to the Discovery Education Community, a global community of education professionals.
Located just north of Boston, APS currently enrolls approximately 6,000 students in one preschool, five K-5 elementary schools, three middle schools, and a senior high school. The district’s graduation rate is 96% (third highest in the state) and 95% of APS students are college-bound.
