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."
