Discovery Education Techbook

I'm sure you have heard, VBCPS has adopted the Discovery Education Science Techbook for Virginia for grades K-5. But ... did you know you have access to it now? You do! Not only do you have access, but you are encouraged to go ahead and begin exploring it.

Check out this introductory flyer for more information.

I know we are coming to the end of the school year and everyone has a lot going on. Don't stress about having to implement something new. Use of the techbook is completely optional at this time, but take a sec to give it a look. I'm pretty sure you'll like what you see and maybe, just maybe, you'll be intrigued enough to want to take the #vbDigiText Challenge! It's a fun way to help familiarize yourself with this new resource. I think once your in you will be amazed by what you see!

If you do begin to explore, and you are on Twitter, please use #vbDigiText to tweet about it!


Googlepalooza Tidewater is coming! It will be held in Hampton on June 23. If you are interested in learning more about Google Apps for Education, this is a great opportunity!
