MOORESVILLE, N.C. (AP) — The Mooresville Graded School District is offering more digital textbooks to its students.

The district says it is expanding its partnership with Discovery Education to bring digital social studies textbooks to middle school classrooms. The all-in-one resource works with iPads, tablets, mobile devices, laptops or desktops and other devices.

Mooresville’s district piloted Discovery Education’s Social Studies Techbook. It previously adopted the Science Techbook series, as well as Discovery Education Streaming Plus for use throughout the district.

Discovery Education launched its digital textbook series in the fall of 2011 with a Techbook program for K-8 science. It announced in March 2012 the expansion of the series to include middle school social studies and high school science subjects.

Students in 41 states and in Canada have access to the Techbook series.
