Discovery Education is a division of Discovery Communications, whose networks include Discovery Channel, Science Channel, and Animal Planet.
Intended to replace traditional textbooks as the new primary instructional resource for elementary schools, each edition of the Discovery Education Techbook series is built to address individual state science standards. In addition to vivid digital content, a real-time assessment component included within the Techbook measures student progress and recommends individualized resources that reinforce classroom instruction.
As a holistic learning system, the Techbook integrates the nature of science and inquiry into every phase of learning. With stunning videos, colorful text passages and interactive simulations, the Techbook kindles student interest in how science relates to their everyday life, stimulates critical thinking and deepens students’ understanding of core concepts.
Aiding implementation of this new service is a variety of teacher resources. Ranging from valuable refreshers on science content for educators to full days of custom, in-person staff development, these resources build educators’ capacity to leverage the power of digital content to engage students.
Finally, the Discovery Education Science Techbook is a substantially less expensive option per student than textbooks, with additional savings derived from a lack of textbook replacement or inventory costs.
