    Techbook iPad App

    Bridge the Digital Divide with the Discovery Education Techbook™ iPad App

    Discovery Education and Apple help bridge the digital divide with the new Discovery Education Techbook app for the iPad available at no cost through the iTunes store. Through the app, users may download the interactive Techbook™ content they need — from an individual video to an entire concept — to their iPad when they have internet connection. Once downloaded, that content is available to students, anywhere, anytime even without any internet.

    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."
