Continuing on the theme of multi-media… SAFARI Montage expands

Given that the average American consumes the majority of their information from multi-media sources (see previous post), it seems that educators would strive to integrate more multi-media resources in the classroom.   The perfect solution?  SAFARI Montage.   By utilizing SAFARI Montage, you will never again need to worry about:

  1. copyright issues  
  2. spending way too much time trying to find high-quality educational video resources that suit your students’ age/maturity level
  3. having to fast forward through 80% of the video to get to the content you want your students to focus on

SAFARI Montage provides K-12 schools and districts a comprehensive solution for digital media networking and visual instruction.  Essentially, through one single interface, schools/districts can store, manage, and access all of their own visual resources as well as SAFARI Montage’s award-winning video-on-demand library, which includes resources from top publishers such as PBS, Schlessinger Media, The History Channel, National Geographic, and more.  SAFARI Montage’s unique media player is very sophisticated – no buffering, instant ability to slow down or speed up the video, add closed captioning with a click (great for special needs students) – are just a few of the cool features.  Also, teachers can customize and chunk video clips very easily, enabling teachers to select and share the exact content they want to.  Making the transition to digital media is easy and cost-effective with SAFARI Montage. 

Oh, and here’s some even better news… SAFARI Montage just expanded the number of video titles for grades K-12 to 2,500 videos and 13,700 images, bringing the total number of videos on the core and additional packages to over 7,000 videos and 20,000 images.  The K-8 Core Content additional resources enhance the 7th and 8th grade offerings in all subjects, including resources addressing career guidance in STEM occupations (very timely!).  Of course, true to SAFARI Montage’s high quality, all of the resources come from highly respected publishers and have been carefully reviewed by experienced curriculum specialists to ensure grade-appropriateness and standards alignment.
