"Students in Albuquerque Public Schools won’t get updated textbooks in science or social studies this year—or perhaps ever. Instead, they’re getting what district officials are calling 'techbooks.' The APS board recently unanimously approved an $11.3 million, seven-year contract with Discovery Education, which provides web-based resources instead of physical books. Discovery offers videos, interactive lessons, educational games, reading passages, and glossaries. The contract also includes training for teachers, which district officials said will be forthcoming this semester."
