Beth Dichter's curator insight, September 20, 2014 10:02 PM

Check out this new eBook from the Smithsonian Science Education Center. You may download it for the iPad or Mac and it will be interactive. It is also available as a pdf. 

This book is designed for students in grades 3 - 5, introducing them to insects from a range of locations. In the interactive version you will find pictures, videos,  the sounds of the insects habitat and students may click or tap underlined words and hear definitions of the words. There is also an animated map in the interactive version. 

There is also a coloring book that you may download, and all are free!

Help students learn about why insects are beneficial, how they survive and how they impact their ecosystem.

Slidedocs - spread ideas with effective visual documents

Slidedocs - spread ideas with effective visual documents | Research Capacity-Building in Africa | Scoop.it

Slidedocs help you spread your smart thinking by combining visual communications with short chunks of written copy. Their scannable nature makes them great pre-read, reference, and leave-behind materials. Their modularity makes it easy for people to incorporate your ideas into their own communications. And these features together make slidedocs the perfect companion to both written documents and presentations.

I am looking for applications to build student portfolios and this looks like a good one :-)
