The Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD), Discovery Education, and Annenberg Learner today announced a new partnership providing educators, students and families access to high-quality digital resources, furthering our commitment to adaptive and enriching education during the unprecedented disruption of the global COVID-19 pandemic. From the press release:
“We all face a critical challenge as the pandemic continues,” said Wallis Annenberg, Chairman and CEO of the Annenberg Foundation. “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? 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 LA public schools in this important endeavor, and making Learner’s incredible resources available to them.”Read the full press release.
Discovery Education will incorporate Annenberg Learner content into Discovery Education Experience, which will enable even more educators, students and parents across the country the opportunity to engage with Annenberg Learner’s educational content.
To help educators integrate their new digital resources into instruction in the coming school year, Discovery Education will provide Los Angeles Unified teachers dedicated professional learning. Through these interactive professional development sessions, participants will learn best practices for using their new digital resources. Effective professional development will maximize the power of these digital resources, increase student engagement in instruction and support students’ continued academic development.
