What Librarians Think About Discovery Education’s Techbook

The School Library Journal recently shared its coveted review spotlight with Discovery Education’s Techbook series.

The Journal’s glowing review of Techbook called it a well-designed, multimodal resource capable of enhancing learning and adapting to individual student needs.

“These relevant, reliable digital textbooks are a welcome addition to classrooms and school districts that value 21st-century learning skills,” wrote Audrey Sumser, a librarian from Akron, Ohio.

Sumser’s review explores the inner workings of the Techbook series (Science Techbook, Social Studies Techbook, and Math Techbook), from how its comprehensive content is organized, to how flexible its digital offerings are, to just how customizable Techbook can be. For example, Science Techbook offers 35 state-specific editions to meet the needs of vastly different state standards.

We’re pleased to see our hard work at Discovery Education being recognized. Earlier this year, we were identified in The Ohio State University’s SpotOn initiative as the top digital resource publisher in K-12 Science, 6-8 Social Studies, and 6-12 Math — our audience for Techbook. And Tech & Learning‘s 34th annual Awards of Excellence named Science Techbook for NGSS as a winner in the New Products category.

Accolades like these are invigorating, but what’s more important to us is that our resources are truly helping students. So we were encouraged when we learned of identifiable student success outcomes as a result of Techbook in school districts like Rock Hill Schools, Rowan-Salisbury Schools, and Oak Ridge Schools.
