Discovery Streaming is an amazing resource that is provided to all GCISD teachers and students through Region XI. If you don't already have a login, you can get your campus passcode from your librarian.
Here is a quick start guide created by the Technology Department: https://drive.google.com/open?id=0ByzzW1TXENtbNzhfeEE5ckhzQjA
Once you're logged in, you can search for videos (and video clips) by keyword, subject, grade level and even specific TEKS standards
When you click on a specific video's page, you can read a short synopsis, preview the video, select specific clips or download the video. Some videos also come with lesson plans (found under the Materials dropdown).
From the "Classroom Manager" dropdown at the top, teachers can create classes and student logins. Discovery Streaming has great instructions for creating student accounts (http://goo.gl/xnsmpM). Tip: make their login the same as their GCISD Google account. Once your students have logins, you can assign videos for them to view and students in grades 6-12 can search for videos
