It's SUMMER - and teachers rejoice!

"Though we've gotta say goodbye, for the summer..."

Okay, not really.  We'll still be here, all summer long, planning for the new school year, prepping to bring you more terrific educational DVDs and teacher resources.

So while you're reading, decompressing, enjoying the beach, taking classes yourself, designing new bulletin boards, and doing all those other things teachers do over summer vacation, if you need some help from us, we're still here, 8 am-6 pm EST, every weekday. Call us (toll free: 888-242-0563)or email us ([email protected]).

When you come prepared to write an essay, "What I Did on My Summer Vacation."  (Just kidding! Have some fun!)

New Release - Inventing the Future

Apple computer company. (And their amazing Macs, iPods, iPads, and iPhones.)
Wireless internet.
Can you imagine what life would be like today if the people who’d come up with those ideas hadn’t been able to get the money to transform their ideas into reality? Imagine life without those things?
I can’t.  And likely your students can't, either.
Entrepreneurs and venture capitalists have transformed our society time and time again. People with ideas…and people who bet their money on those ideas. Our new DVD, Inventing the Future, focuses on those two groups of people, and helps your students understand the system of risks – and rewards – that fuels innovation and leads people to change and enhance our everyday lives.
Discover how Steve Jobs and Mike Markkula (Apple Computer), Sandy Lerner, Len Bosack, and Don Valentine (Cisco Systems) created two companies that have greatly impacted our lives today.

Want to see how this DVD aligns to National or your state education standards? Go here and plug in Inventing the Future, your grade level and subject area, and which standards you want to investigate. The correlating standards will be shown to you.
