Quotes from students this year about the Discovery Education Science Techbook:
” Mr. Rowland, can I get Science Techbook at home?”
“Would it be OK if I took my username card home so I can work on this at home?”
“Science Techbook actually makes science fun!”
“We learned about Earthquakes on Friday and we had an earthquake on Saturday!”
“I think Science Techbook is the best because I love the videos, we all do!”
I have the distinct privilege of training teachers and students how to use technology in Greenville County Title I schools. After attending a workshop with Discovery Techbook in October, I decided to train teachers and students how to use Techbook and set that as my professional goal for the 2013-2014 school year.
Welcome Elementary School and Monaview Elementary School piloted DE Techbook this year. I decided to spend time working with teachers during planning and after school to help them plan lessons and navigate the app. The best part was modeling ways to integrate the amazing resources that are available to students using this app in their classrooms.
Welcome Elementary is a 1:1 iPad school and Monaview Elementary has a variety of devices such as laptops, iPads, mini iPads, Dell tablets, and 2 computer labs.
Both schools have a Virtual Science Lab and are able to partner with each other during Science experiments.
Here is a video as I introduce Techbook to students in 3rd grade.
