Streaming Media Renewed for Arkansas Schools


Through a recent agreement between Arkansas Educational Television Network and Discovery Education, schools in Arkansas will have access to Discovery streaming, a service that provides education-focused streaming multimedia content. The one-year deal renews an existing agreement, making the materials available to 1,358 school buildings in Arkansas, according to the companies.

Arkansas Educational Television Network is a public broadcasting service that also provides an education portal called IDEAS (for "Internet Delivered Education for Arkansas Schools"), which supplies learning materials, classroom tools, and professional development resources for Arkansas.

Discovery Education streaming offers more than 4,000 full-length videos and other resources, including photography, reference articles, curriculum development, assignment creation, and test creation tools.

In addition, AETN also provides access to the Discovery Educator Network, an online community of 26,000 educators that provides technology training, blogs, and various professional development tools.
