Indiana and Louisiana are next states to adopt DE Science TechBook!


Congrats to science teachers in Indiana and Louisiana! You join those in Oregon as among the first in the country to have a true alternative to traditional textbooks. Both states recently adopted the Discovery Education Science Techbook as a digital core instructional resource for elementary and middle school science instruction through their state textbook adoption process.  You can check out the press release for it here.

Yes, this means that they can use textbook funds to purchase a digital solution instead. Each edition of the Discovery Education Science Techbook series is built from the ground up to address individual state standards and is intended to serve as the new primary instructional resource for Indiana and Louisiana elementary and middle schools. The dynamic, interactive resources included in each state’s edition support the 5E model of instruction. A real-time assessment component that measures students’ progress and recommends individualized resources that reinforce classroom instruction is also included.

That’s 3 down… which states should we go after next?

    Yea for LA! We are so proud to have this option for our state, and to be one of the first that will be using this fantastic approach to learning.
