INFOhio FY2019 Resource Collection Update
INFOhio is licensing and renewing high-quality, digital, instructional content for the 2018-2019 school year that all Ohio PreK-12 students, their parents, and their teachers can use at school, at home, and on the go. INFOhio has licensed Science Online and renewed videos in INFOhio's Digital Video Collection (DVC) for all Ohio PreK-12 schools to use at no cost to schools.
Ohio's PreK-12 use of Science Online, formerly part of the Libraries Connect Ohio collection, has steadily increased during the last three years. As science and math teachers have come to rely on this resource, INFOhio will continue the subscription to Science Online for the PreK-12 community through June 30, 2020. Science Online includes:
- 2,500+ science, technology, and math topics, updated monthly, that support Ohio’s Learning Standards and STEM initiatives
- more than 62,000 digital items including full text encyclopedia and news articles and biographies
- more than 1,600 experiments and activities
- more than 4,000 video clips and animations
- 10 eLearning Modules that teachers can embed in their learning management system
- Google Classroom integration
The Digital Video Collection (DVC) is INFOhio's collection of streaming educational titles that support Ohio's Learning Standards in nearly all subjects and grade levels. Popular DVC series include Bill Nye the Science Guy and Eyes of Nye. Many of the videos renewed include teacher guides with assessments, lesson plans, activities, video scripts, and Spanish language translations. DVC playlists make it easy for teachers in any content area to find collections of videos for use in the classroom or at home.
INFOhio will provide more information in the coming weeks on digital content that will be available to all PreK-12 schools from INFOhio and Libraries Connect Ohio.
