Twin Falls School District Host Community Night About Digital Media In The Classroom
Twin Falls, Idaho (KMVT-TV) - Do you have questions about the Twin Falls School Districts use of digital media and technology tools being used in the classrooms? The district and Discovery Education will host an interactive community night that’s designed to answer your questions.
During the event, teachers, administrators, and Discovery Education representatives will lead interactive sessions to provide families and community members an opportunity to see the hands-on and digital resources that are transforming Twin Falls School District’s classrooms into 21st century learning environments and inspiring and engaging students.
The Idaho State Department of Education and Discovery Education announced a partnership in March to give every Idaho classroom access to digital content. Digital resources provide interactive learning experiences, bring the world to classrooms, are updated in real-time and improve student engagement and achievement. Through the partnership, which is funded with a generous grant from the J.A. and Kathryn Albertson Foundation, Idaho teachers and students have ready access to Discovery Education streaming PLUS, a library of 150,000 dynamic and engaging resources that cover all curriculum areas and meet Idaho Content Standards and the Common Core State Standards. The community night will be followed by a one-day, intensive professional development opportunity for all teachers in this region to learn more strategies and innovative ways to integrate digital content into their lesson plans.
The partnership with Discovery Education is part of Students Come First, Idaho’s effort to create 21st century classrooms in every school and give students and teachers access to the best tools and educational opportunities, no matter where they live.
The meeting will be Thursday, September 27 from 6:30 to 8:30 pm at the Canyon Ridge High School. Call the district office at 733-6900 if you have questions.
