It has been exciting to watch our teachers and students
use Science Techbook™ in their classrooms during this first year
of implementation. The change that is taking place not only brings a
powerful digital resource into the classroom, but embraces a method
of teaching that allows our teachers to become facilitators of knowledge.
Interactivity is the critical function that separates static text from a fully digital resource. With Core Interactive Text, Discovery Education Earth & Space Science Techbook™ takes interactivity to a whole new level. Designed to reach every learner, Core Interactive Text (CIT) is Science Techbook’s groundbreaking user interface that captures the unique benefits of digital – sound, video, images, explorations, text-to-speech, note-taking and highlighting – with one-button simplicity.
Mastering science vocabulary is critical to student success in Earth & Space Science. Discovery Education’s Interactive Glossary brings science vocabulary to life. This landmark multimedia resource includes:
Digital explorations are dynamic interactive learning tools developed exclusively by Discovery Education. They provide a superior way to understand how vital processes on Earth and in space -- like metamorphic rocks – work and to determine the cause and effect relationships between key variables.
From short video segments illuminating different aspects of Earth & Space Science to cool Earth & Space Science segments from “Head Rush” where Kari Byron checks out “Entering a Black Hole,” Discovery Education Earth & Space Science Techbook provides a full range of engaging videos that will connect with visual learners.
