Discovery Education Techbook LIVE provides participants with some of the most effective strategies for transforming classrooms through the meaningful integration of Discovery Education Techbook digital content.

Discovery Education experts and educators will inform and inspire through presentations, conversations, and demonstrations – sharing ideas, knowledge, and instructional strategies to transform teaching and learning and support your digital transition.

How to Participate
Join us to watch live-streamed presentations by the Discovery Education team, Techbook-using educators, and students.

  • Register to receive updates, agendas, viewing instructions, and follow-up information about the event and archives.
  • Join the conversation using the hashtag #TechbookLive. Let other educators in your district know about it so they can participate too!
  • Host or participate in a viewing event with other educators in your school, district, or local area.

Event Agenda
Our agenda is full of great information and ideas and strategies for utilizing the resources found in Discovery Education Science, Social Studies, and Math Techbooks, including a keynote presentation by Michael Sandridge (Carroll County Public Schools, MD) and featured session by Shelby Bailey (Warren County School District, MO).  Because this is a virtual event, join from anywhere and stay as long as you are able – the whole day, part of the day, or whatever works best for you and your schedule.

In addition to our schedule below, we will also be featuring the Iron Teach Competition.  This pre-recorded program will highlight Discovery Education Spotlight on Strategies (SOS) activities throughout the day.
