VBCPS’s new partnership with Discovery Education supports the district’s five-year strategic framework, Compass to 2020: Charting The Course. Discovery Education’s Science Techbooks will support district educators as they deliver standards-aligned instruction that is differentiated to meet unique student needs.

Using an inquiry-based format built on the Engage, Explore, Explain, Elaborate, Evaluate (5E) model, each Science Techbook includes standards-aligned content such as video, audio, text, interactives with hands-on activities, and virtual labs that help educators differentiate instruction and provide a rich and engaging learning experience for students. Additional student features include bilingual text-to-speech and leveled reading tools, and note-taking and highlighting capabilities.

The Discovery Education Community will also support Virginia Beach educators in their efforts to transform students’ learning experience with digital media. A global community of education professionals, the Discovery Education Community connects members across school systems and around the world through social media, virtual conferences, and in-person events.
