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 Chemistry
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. tb
Mastering science vocabulary is critical to student success in chemistry. 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 chemical processes -- like electrochemistry – work and to determine the cause and effect relationships between key variables.
From short video segments illuminating different aspects of chemistry to cool chemistry segments from “Head Rush” where Kari Byron checks out “What makes an ammonia-powered fountain gush?” Discovery Education Chemistry Techbook provides a full range of engaging videos that will connect with visual learners.
