Wow! What a busy week! We've been super busy here at CK-12 launching our brand new back to school campaign.
We know you've probably been busy actually getting back into the classroom or preparing to in the next few weeks. Either way, CK-12 has your back when it comes to STEM education news!
Here's the big stuff that happened this week in the wonderful world of STEM education.
This Tuesday we thought we'd teach you about a really cool feature that allows you to go above and beyond in the customization of your STEM FlexBooks at CK-12.
You already know that you can add and delete content from your FlexBooks. You know that you can use CK-12 science and math concepts to create a FlexBook from scratch. But did you know you can also customize the cover of your FlexBooks?! Well, you can!
Using our super duper easy editor tools, you can customize the cover image of your STEM FlexBook! Watch the video below to learn how!
It's that time in your busy summer to start thinking about the kids again! As you gather up your folders and dig out old lesson plans, let CK-12 help!
Here at CK-12 in beautiful Palo Alto, California, we've been busy all summer long improving our website and building out new STEM content to help make going back to school a little easier this year. If you've been away from your computer, be sure to check out some of our new features like Groups and our new navigation bar on the website!
Use CK-12 STEM content this school year to make planning for lessons a piece of cake!
It's Friday! Woo! That means it's time for those of us here at CK-12 to recap the happenings in the world of STEM and education!
Here are just a few things we came across that are worth mentioning. We hope you enjoy them!
Today is Tutorial Tuesday, which means it's time for us to share another CK-12 pro tip! Last week we covered our brand new CK-12 groups function for collaboration and sharing of science and math content.
This week we want to teach you how to spice up your customized FlexBooks and concepts with beautiful (and educational) media for back to school.
Follow these simple steps to embed detailed diagrams of triangles in math content, helpful videos on mitosis in your favorite science FlexBook, photos of your class demonstrating a science experiment step-by-step and more!
Every Friday, those of us here at CK-12 Foundation like to recap what happened in the world of STEM education during the week.
Good morning beautiful CK-12 users! Today, we'd like to walk you through CK-12's coolest and most useful function: customization.
CK-12 concepts and FlexBooks (online textbooks) are written to be engaging, educational and fun, but we know every teacher and every student is different. That is why we've made our FlexBooks and concepts 100% customizeable! Now every teacher can customize their online textbooks to fit their unique teaching style! And, like all CK-12 content and online textbooks, they are 100% free!
So, let's get started!
Three weeks ago, CK-12 Foundation co-founder Neeru Khosla presented an overview of the organization to a panel of technology experts and investors at the Launch Education & Kids Festival.
The event, held at the Microsoft Silicon Valley Conference Center in Mountain View, CA, highlighted innovative start-ups focused on both the K-12 and higher education markets.
Wow! What a busy week! If you're located in the US, you've probably been wrapped up in the news of trials and plane crashes. Or, maybe you're working on planning your classroom for students to arrive in just a few weeks. Either way, CK-12 has your back when it comes to STEM education news!
