Discovery offers free site license for widened unitestreaming portfolio

Discovery Education announced a brand-new promotional offer giving a free site license for its popular “unitedstreaming” digital video-on-demand service with every license purchased at list price. This new offer is available immediately and runs through April 15, 2005, the company said. With more than 4,000 full-length, core-curriculum videos divided into more than 40,000 content-specific video clips, the service gives educators the ability to enhance their lesson plans with rich multimedia content that is correlated with individual state education standards. To take advantage of this buy-one, get-one-free offer, which is open to any new or existing unitedstreaming customers, call (800) 323-9084. Discovery Education also announced that it has added more than 250 new video, DVD, and CD-ROM titles to its Discovery School line of educational products, bringing the total collection to more than 1,000 titles. In addition to all-new titles in history, math, health, and literature, Discovery has added four new video series covering science, geography, and social studies. These include “Greatest Discoveries with Bill Nye,” an eight-part series featuring stories of how the great discoveries of science were made, how they affected the development of scientific knowledge, and how they touch our lives today; and “Daily Planet,” a series from Discovery Channel Canada that finds science in the most unusual places: firefighting, hurricane tracking, space travel, fishing, golf, and more. As with all Discovery School products, these titles also include complete lesson plans correlated with national standards for easy integration into teachers’ existing curriculum, Discovery said.
