LOS ANGELES (CNS) - The Los Angeles Unified School District, the education division of the Annenberg Foundation and a company that creates digital education materials today announced a partnership designed to give teachers, students being taught remotely and their parents “access to high-quality digital resources.”
“Through this new partnership, Los Angeles Unified educators, students and families are empowered to interact with more than 300,000 exciting digital resources, standards-aligned activities and vetted, high-quality content carefully curated by grade level. These new digital resources will play a critical role to support continued learning on any device; whether at home or in the classroom,” according to a statement.
Los Angeles Unified Superintendent Austin Beutner said the district is “grateful to Annenberg Learner and Discovery Education for helping us provide students with the tools they need to receive a great education.”
The partnership will give teachers and students access to the Discovery Education learning platform selected by the district based on the choice of educators.
The platform “connects educators to a vast collection of compelling high-quality, standards-aligned content, ready-to-use digital lessons and professional learning resources,” according to the statement. “Together, these resources give educators what they need to facilitate instruction in any learning environment, with the ultimate goal of generating long-lasting
Discovery Education will incorporate content from Annenberg Learner, the education division of the Annenberg Foundation, into its Discovery Education Experience platform, “which will enable even more educators, students and parents across the country the opportunity to engage with Annenberg Learner's educational content.”
‘How do we keep bolstering dynamic digital education content when so many children are learning at home while also opening new doors to learning for everyone?” said Annenberg Foundation Chairman and CEO Wallis Annenberg. “This is something our foundation's been engaged in for many decades now, especially with our Annenberg Learner initiative. That's why I'm so proud to be helping Discovery and the L.A. public schools in this important endeavor, and making Learner's incredible resources available to them.”
Discovery, which is based in Charlotte, North Carolina, will also hold development sessions for L.A. teachers, the statement said.
