Steve teaches science in Oregon at Thomas Edison High School, which serves stu- dents with mild learning disabilities.

Read Steve's insights on integrating digital media and technology into the classroom: How do technology and digital media support your teaching and your students' learning? "Technology and digital media have expanded my ability to engage with stu- dents and enrich their learning experi- ences. Integrating digital media contex- tualizes complex topics for my students and encourages deeper curiosity; this is particularly true with resources from PBS LearningMedia.

Color Access Policy Manager (CAPM) makes printing in color cost effective for your school.
