CK12: digital STEM textbooks


Many school have been holding back on buying new curricula because of financial limitations (i.e recession woes) and recent national level reforms (NGSS, CCSS). As the recession fades and the standards get established, many districts will be looking for new resources, and it will be common for these new items to be located in a digital environment.

If teachers or district leaders want to find a digital curriculum that is free and provides several content areas to explore, I  recommend checking out CK12. They do a nice job presenting the materials, provide a decent amount of free content, and have digital textbooks that can be downloaded in various formats. I am going to keep my eye on out libraries like this and will post the good ones as they roll in.
