Can we put the hardcopy text aside?

picture-9.pngDiscovery offers great opportunities for teachers. Science teachers at Edward Little are investigating ways to go without a textbook.  They are exploring the great opportunities Discovery has to offer. For teachers the Science packages and the builders will help enhance the curriculum, for students it will help each of them as they incorporate their space in the Student Center with teacher projects and assessments.

    I think this is definitely a great way to bring schools into the 21st century and better engage students.

    Tracie Belt and I are 7th grade science teachers in Florida who have gone digital for the rest of the school year. We blog about it in the Florida DENLC blog. Check it out to see the pros and cons of going digital and how our classes have changed over the past few months.

    Good luck Edward Little. I know your kids will appreciate the change!

    Discovery is so “right-on” in their move to change science in our classrooms!

    This is great to see this school taking the leap and exploring the options that go well beyond the textbook. My school doesn’t use textbooks for Science, but Battle Creek Science kits (think Foss-type). I constantly add to and enhance with resources from DE Science. DE Science tends to engage the students more and is very well laid out and meets my state’s standards easliy.
