We love Discovery Education! As a Discovery Educator Network STAR, I have access to a ton of resources from Discovery Education. As part of Teacher Appreciation Week, they have allowed me to try-out their new Science Tech Book for a few months. While their isn't an official version of the Tech Book for our state, we will be able to view the version that other states have been using.
Back when I was in elementary school I used to watch "The Jetsons" every morning. I imagined how wonderful it would be to have a hovercraft, video phone, and computer books. These days we do not yet have hovercrafts yet, but we do have Skype & eBooks. I'm hoping that the Science Tech Book is everything that I imagined. I'm picturing an eBook with interactive video clips & science vocabulary hyperlinked to a glossary. I can't wait to try this out!
