All Discovery Education Techbook users can download the app for free.

Discovery Education’s new Techbook app enables educators and students to access and interact with Discovery Education's rich digital textbook content in locations without Internet access. Through the app, users may download the interactive Techbook content they need — from an individual video to an entire concept — to an iPad wherever and whenever they have an Internet connection.  Once downloaded, that content is available to students anywhere they take their device, 24 hours a day.

Multimodal content including an interactive glossary and interactive text supports all learning styles by enhancing text passages with sound, video, text-to-speech, English-to-Spanish, English-to-French, different reading levels, and three font sizes.


What Educators 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.”
