What People Are Saying

"Our kids are very technology savvy and they understand how it works and that has allowed us to bring, at their fingertips, some of the things they like doing best, which is just using technology. It's fun to them and they're learning at the same time. So, I think it's certainly motivating them. It's increased their interest, increased their engagement, and I think in most cases it has increased their achievement in the classroom."

Superintendent
Sherman Independent School District, Texas

What People Are Saying

"The new Discovery Education Techbook app provides access to dynamic digital content to all students with iPad and helps extend learning beyond the classroom. Now, because I can have all the content my class needs to complete their work downloaded to devices before they leave school, I can give my students digital assignments to complete outside the classroom, regardless of their internet access beyond our campus."
