Board of education work session, september 8, 2020
Silver Spring, Maryland (18 August 2016) – Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Schools (WS/FCS) in North Carolina and Discovery Education, the leading provider of digital content and professional development for K-12 classrooms, today announced a three-year collaboration that will provide students and educators with dynamic digital tools and personalized professional development that will support the MLCs initiative.
Beginning in the 2016-2017 academic year, WS/FCS educators will incorporate Discovery Education’s Science Techbook (Grades 5-12), Social Studies Techbook (Grades 6-8), and Math Techbook (Middle and High School) into classroom curriculum as part of this new partnership. In addition, Discovery Education Streaming Plus, a robust multimedia service supplementing learning across all K-12 curricular areas, will be available in all K-12 classrooms in the district.
The district’s Mobile Learning Communities (MLCs) program will be aided by this new collaboration. This initiative, which began in the 2013-2014 school year, allows students in the district to use their own devices for learning. The program’s objectives are to boost student achievement, innovation, communication, and teamwork by integrating technology into instruction; to assist students in achieving media literacy mastery and developing positive digital footprints; to increase student participation and expand learning outside the classroom; and to provide a digitally rich learning experience for all students.

Silver Spring, Maryland, May 29, 2014 – Discovery Education, the leading provider of digital content and professional development for K-12 schools, announced today the addition of four new employees to its Educational Partnerships team, who will collaborate with educators and administrators to develop personalized strategies that promote each learner’s progress. The new workers would work out of Discovery Education’s Charlotte, North Carolina headquarters.
Katie Morrison is the new Director of Urban Partnerships at Discovery Education. Morrison will work with Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools and other big, urban school districts across the country to promote the introduction of digital curriculum, custom professional development, evaluation tools, and educator groups that support the transition to diverse digital learning environments in her new role.
Morrison held the positions of Chief of Staff for Innovation & Incubation and Director of Restructuring Operations at Chicago Public Schools (CPS) before joining Discovery Education. She oversaw a range of strategic measures during her time at CPS, including the implementation of legislation to promote a new, student-based school budgeting mechanism and capability consolidation efforts.

Business and it trade talk i
The new Junior Achievement Discovery Center, a 25,000-square-foot facility on the Alliance Academy for Innovation campus in Cumming, was officially opened this week by Forsyth County Schools. It is planned to take students from all over northeast Georgia and teach them how to be financially literate members of society. People got their first chance to walk through the space, which has been in the works for several years, on Thursday after hearing from community leaders including Forsyth County Superintendent Jeff Bearden and UNG President Bonita Jacobs.
Over the next year, between 15,000 and 17,000 students from Forsyth County and beyond will come to the center to learn and play, according to Lee Highsmith, executive director of the Junior Achievement North Georgia District. “They’ll learn everything there is to know about financial literacy, entrepreneurship, startups, teamwork, and the soft skills that employers are looking for in their potential workforce,” Highsmith said. “This is a fantastic opportunity for young people,” says the author. Junior Achievement, according to Highsmith, begins teaching financial literacy skills to children as early as kindergarten, beginning with simple concepts like the difference between a need and a want and continuing through eighth grade, where students learn about credit and budgeting and how to be financially stable and autonomous. Students will be able to come to the center with their peers until they reach sixth grade, according to Highsmith, to play out a large-scale game of life. They will apply for work, earn a paycheck, and be responsible for the bills and taxes that they will face in the real world.
