Why should you support the Academy of Discovery?

  • It is research based and research endemic. (eMints, Rockman et. Al, Digital Writers; see Rationale)
  • It is collaborative by nature. (Working across the country, and across the world on issues that really are engaging for students; see DiscoveryUtopias)
  • It is authentic (Concrete application of abstract/educational concepts; see Discovery Del.icio.us)
  • It is not more of the same, just with computers. (We ask ourselves the question: What can we do with this technology that we couldn’t do without it?; see DiscoveryIsms)
  • It is boundless. (Personal Learning Networks, anywhere and anytime learning, student-directed; see the Bloglines Account).
