This roundtable builds on previous research by Yore (1986) that identified six research foci for future research related to science and reading, (1) nature of science and science education; (2) nature of the reading process; (3) nature of science text; (4) nature of the reader; (5) teachers' attitudes toward and knowledge about science reading; and (6) instructional uses and strategies related to science reading. The next generation of e-textbooks in science offer, no require, renewed focus of the research agenda. The roundtable and accompanying paper would discuss the development of new technologies, the issues inherent in a more complete understanding of teaching and learning with these new technologies, potential new theoretical frameworks, and will conclude to audience participation in the elucidation of potential new foci and/or significant interactions that were enabled/activated when utilizing the newest generation of e-textbooks in the teaching and learning of science.
