Louisiana Public Broadcasting (LPB) and Discovery Education today announced the renewal of their 20-year partnership, which provides educators statewide high-quality digital content from Discovery Education’s award-winning K-12 learning platform. Thanks to this partnership's continuation, educators across Louisiana will continue to have access to dynamic digital resources and learning tools that support the delivery of engaging lessons statewide. Discovery Education is the worldwide edtech leader whose state-of-the-art digital platform supports instruction wherever it takes place.
LPB is Louisiana’s largest digital classroom over the air, on every device, in schools, and in the community. LPB’s Educational Services Department is committed to providing extensive information, lesson plans, materials, and digital resources to support formal K-12 education statewide. Through its 20-year partnership with Discovery Education, LPB has offered learners access to a deep library of digital resources through Discovery Education’s K-12 platform. Over the course of this collaboration, more than 58 million Discovery Education digital resources have been used by Louisiana's teachers and students in their academic endeavors.
The Discovery Education platform connects educators to a vast collection of high-quality, standards-aligned content, ready-to-use digital lessons, intuitive quiz and activity creation tools, and professional learning resources. Through the platform, Discovery Education facilitates engaging, daily instruction in any environment. These resources, sourced from trusted partners, are aligned to state and national standards, and help educators bring the outside world into teaching and learning every day.
Discovery Education’s K-12 learning platform works within school systems’ existing infrastructure and workflows and provides safe, secure, simple access methods for educators and students. Through expanded, lasting partnerships with Microsoft Teams, Google Classroom, Schoology, Canvas, Brightspace, and Clever, integrating Discovery Education’s K-12 learning platform into existing IT architecture is easier than ever.
“Louisiana Public Broadcasting is proud to celebrate its 20th year of partnership with Discovery Education,” said Clarence “C.C” Copeland, Louisiana Public Broadcasting’s President and CEO. “Together, we’ve built a collaboration that each day brings the world into Louisiana’s classrooms and helps connect what students are learning to their real-life application. We are proud to continue this powerful relationship.”
As a part of this partnership renewal, Louisiana’s educators will continue benefiting from the support of the Discovery Educator Network as they transform students’ learning experiences with dynamic digital media. A global community of education professionals, the Discovery Educator Network connects members across school systems and around the world through social media, virtual conferences, and in-person events, fostering valuable networking, idea sharing, and inspiration.
