EBSCO Discovery Service as a Classroom Learning Resource
Are you overwhelmed with all the online choices that you have to choose from to incorporate into the classroom? Are you looking for some short cuts? Join Christopher for an engaging session on how EBSCO can assist you with navigating all the various resources. EBSCO is just not a resource for the “upcoming Science Fair project” but a resource that both teachers and students will come to rely on for learning in the classroom. Perhaps “Siri” or “Alexa” may be one of your future classroom helpers!
