Following a comprehensive evaluation, the South Carolina State Board of Education has approved the Discovery Education Science Techbook for the K-5 and 6-8 grade bands, plus high school Earth & Space science, for statewide use as a core instructional resource through its state adoption process. South Carolina’s adoption of the award-winning Science Techbook empowers the state’s school systems to integrate this innovative digital curriculum into teaching and learning. Discovery Education is the worldwide edtech leader whose state-of-the-art digital platform supports learning wherever it takes place.
Delivered through Discovery Education’s flexible K-12 platform, Science Techbook drives engagement with exclusive phenomena and interactive content. Virtual and hands-on investigations, STEM activities, and a variety of instructional supports that enhance the delivery of impactful, blended instruction in person or at a distance.
Available with the Science Techbook are coordinated digital teacher guides offering unit, concept, and lesson overviews, standards connections, and differentiation activities to inform instructional planning and guide three-dimensional learning. Teacher editions also provide flexible pacing options, embedded teacher notes, and Pathways for Learning to address diverse learners.
“Discovery Education thanks the South Carolina Board of Education for their thoughtful review of the Science Techbook,” said Anna Strassner, Discovery Education’s Director of Educational Partnership. “The phenomena-driven learning experiences the Science Techbook makes possible will help South Carolina’s students develop the skills and gather the knowledge needed for future success.”
In South Carolina, the Discovery Education Science Techbook can be accessed through the Department of Education’s Instruction Hub as a curriculum pack.
Educators using the Science Techbook are also supported by the Discovery Education Community as they transform students’ learning experiences with dynamic digital media.
