California’s Digital Textbook Initiative

The California Learning Resource Network (CLRN) recently completed phase two of the textbook review process for the state’s digital textbook initiative and has released a draft report of the results. During the first phase, math and science books were reviewed and the second phase included the review of history-social science texts in addition to math and science. The final report for phase one and additional information can be found on the CLRN website.

Recently Brian Bridges, director of the California Resource Learning Network, participated in a discussion with Education Week and Neeru Khosla, executive director of CK-12 Foundation, called “Are Digital Textbooks Starting to Click?” A copy of the transcript from the discussion has been made available on Education Week’s website.
