Discovery Education offering schools free digital textbooks


Heeding Carvalho’s call, Discovery Education announced that it will offer its Techbook series—a series of digital textbooks featuring K-12 science; physics, chemistry, and biology; and middle school social studies—for free from now until the end of June 2013.

In addition, Discovery and ISTE will provide educators with the chance to participate in more than 40 virtual professional development sessions, also at no cost, to support educators in effective classroom implementation of digital tools.

“There is a new imperative of digital learning in this country,” said Senior Democratic Member of the House Education and the Workforce Committee Congressman George Miller (D-Calif.), author of the Transforming Education through Technology Act. “The digitization of America’s classrooms is one of the most important issues we as a society can tackle today.”
