Mr. Mendez gave an overview of the NSTA Learning Center and described how it can be used as an online textbook when teaching science pre-service teachers. He shared examples of successful application in pre-service teacher classrooms and then invited guest professors Mohr, Day, and Jones to share their experiences using the Learning Center with teacher candidates and to answer questions from the audience.
