Digital Discoveries series host Tim Holt does and excellent job of explaining to the intended audience, of El Paso Independent School District teachers, some basic to fairly advanced conepts in applying digital technology to facilitate instruction. Beginning with "Analog to Digital" where teachers learn how to convert regular paper and pencil assignments into assignments that are facilitated through the use of digital technologies through the latest issue presently available which explains how to use Skype to improve instruction, Tim Holt's low key, literate, and highly personable approach to these video vignettes, along with the valuable information that he presents to teachers, make this series a must see not only for teachers in El Paso ISD, but for teachers nationwide.
