Discovery Education

Discussion

Discovery Education's STREAMING Video Service offers a growing library of over 9,500 full length videos, 77,000 content-specific clips, and more than 150,000 multimedia assets which integrate seamlessly into any curriculum.  Brevard has subscribed to this library since 2007 and continues to utilize it extensively.  Between August 2011 and June 2012, our teachers and students have downloaded and/or streamed in excess of  132,000 instructional videos/video segments.  Discovery offers our teachers and students exclusive access to such popular titles as Planet Earth, Life and Myth Busters.

The subscription cost for this program is $100,860.00 and will be funded by Educational Technology as it has been previously.



Recommendation
Approve the renewal of the Discovery Education STREAMING service for all district school, teachers, and students.
