I was able to download the video, but I cannot click on any of the links within the video, nor can I click on the play button for the first video that is embedded. Any way you can provide it in a different format?

This fits with our VA 3rd grade science standards taught in the last quarter of the school year. Will the video be available throughout the school year? Also, we have over 50 elementary schools. Would it be possible to download the video to be distributed in-house on our video-on-demand system?

@Carol: Yes! This would be a great webinar for second grade students. I would encourage them to join. Thanks!

Cathy Selzer says:
04-Oct-11 09:35 AM

Sounds like a great learning opportunity and I'd love to take part, but my students have an early release on that Wed. I would also like to know if this is available as a "live only" or will it be available on tape for later viewings. Thanks.

Carol Watts says:
04-Oct-11 08:30 AM

I teach second grade...would this be effective for early second graders

Stephanie Stern says:

How long is the webinar?

Siemens STEM Academy says:
03-Oct-11 05:11 PM

@Elaine, the webinar will be most appropriate for a K-5 audience. However, during the webinar, Dave will at some point briefly discuss the Siemens We Can Change the World Challenge, an environmental sustainability competition for students in grades K-12. Hope that helps!

Elaine says:
03-Oct-11 05:05 PM

Why does it say in the header "Focus on K-5", but below it says grade levels 3-12? Which is it?

Robin Satnick says:
03-Oct-11 02:30 PM

My ecology would love to be hear the webinar. Will be be taped so we can show it at a later date? We live on the west coast and will be out of school when it starts.

Perky Smith-Hagadone says:

OMG!!! My sixth-graders have been LOVING Living with Tigers, the 2003 version that I've shown in class, and now I find out that the new version is going to kick off Tiger Week beginning on Nov. 4th! Dave Salmoni is going to have some avid fans, and hopefully some future conservationists, watching these shows. Thanks to Discovery Channel & Dave Salmoni for great educational programming. Sincerly, Nancy Sheridan 6th Grade English Teacher
