APS partners with Discovery Education to provide 21st century learning tools in science, social studies and health classes.

APS has partnered with Discovery Education to take science, social studies and health education into the 21st century. Classrooms across the district are incorporating interactive digital tools that address Common Core State Standards and ignite student curiosity.

Over the next few years, students at all levels in science, social studies and health classes will transition from using traditional textbook to "techbooks," up-to-date and relevant online tools that incorporate current issues into the curriculum and improve learning opportunities for all students.

Techbooks also are more cost effective than textbooks, coming in at about half the price. The techbook provides anytime, anywhere, any device access. They work with any hardware the district has available -- iPad, tablet, mobile device, laptop or desktop. Students and parents have access at home as well.

Though Discovery targets science, social studies and health, the digital and non-digital tools are being used across the disciplines to prepare students to compete in today's technological world.
