Northside Independent School District (San Antonio, TX) and Prince George’s County Public Schools (MD) are among the first American school districts to view one million videos through Discovery Education streaming.

Streaming, a digital video-based learning resource, offers a library of up to 9,000 full-length videos divided into 71,000 content-specific clips that align with state and national standards. Teachers and students can search by keyword, content area and grade level, and the clips can be easily integrated into any classroom curriculum.
With “The Magic School Bus Gets Charged,” Prince George’s County’s Oakcrest Elementary School hit its millionth streamed video. Superintendent Dr. William Hite, Jr. describes this accomplishment as testament to the school’s educators’ “dedication to engaging students in learning through the integration of high-quality digital media into curriculum.”
