New York’s Newburgh Enlarged City School District (NECSD) (opens in new tab) announced today it has selected the latest generation of Discovery Education Streaming Plus, Discovery Education Experience (opens in new tab), to support social studies instruction in the district’s seven K-5 elementary schools, two K-8 schools, and two middle schools (grades 6-8).
To support the implementation of the Integrated Social Studies/ELA Curriculum (opens in new tab) designed by the Putnam Northern Westchester BOCES (opens in new tab), the district has launched a new partnership with Discovery Education, which also provides NECSD educators the professional learning they need.
Discovery Education Experience’s content is complemented by a rich library of research-based instructional strategies for integrating digital media. Aligned to McREL International’s 6-Phase Model of Learning, these strategies foster skill development, complement different types of content, and are 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.
