Happy Tuesday CK-12ers!
Recently, we announced a few new features on your CK-12 dashboard that will make STEM concept-based learning easier than ever before. You can now use CK-12 to assign work to your students, share Flexbooks directly to your students' dashboards, practice STEM concepts using our new timed challenge mode and more.
Today we'd like to teach about CK-12 reporting. Using CK-12 reporting, you can easily see all your students' scores on assignments in one view. You will also see the class average.
Today's guest blog post comes from CK-12 user, Sandra Miller. Sandra is freelance short story author and graduate of Literature from NYU, where she wrote for the students journal and tutored students in writing. She recommends authors use professional editing services Help.Plagtracker. Now she is writing her first YA novel.
In this article, I will present you the top ten STEM resources for preK-12.
Are you tired of lugging piles of papers home at night to grade? What would you do with your free time if it wasn't filled with scoring assignments?
CK-12 recently announced a brand new feature to the CK-12 STEM toolkit that promises to make grading easier than ever!
Whether you'd like your students to review a concept recently taught in class or take a stab at something brand new to them, CK-12 assignments are the way to go.
Using CK-12 Assignments you can easily choose one or more concepts you'd like your students to practice and assign them with just a few clicks. The system will generate a list of questions for you and send the assignment to your students' CK-12 dashboard.
Every Friday, those of us here at CK-12 Foundation like to recap what happened in the world of STEM education during the busy week. This week, we're digging some awesome news and finds in the world of science.
Here are just a few things we came across that are worth mentioning. We hope you enjoy them!
It's back! The CK-12 Get Real Competition is back for its second spin at inspiring creativity and STEM learning in middle and high school students!
The Get Real Competition is a student competition where middle school and high school students are invited to show their creativity in learning K-12 science and math concepts while challenging their own learning.
This competition calls for students to put on their thinking caps, get creative, and create practical examples of STEM concepts in the real world. Now is the time to think of how those science and math concepts you're learning in class apply to the real world!
Today's post comes to us from Kristan Bakker. Kristan is presently a consultant in sustainable international development specializing in education, empowerment of girls, and prevention of violence of against women and girls. Kristan has worked on access to educational resources and technology in schools in South Africa, Uganda, and Tanzania. She lives in Deerfield, Massachusetts.
This post is a collection of serveral journal entries from Kristan's trip to Africa.
I am committed to providing access to quality education to marginalized children in the developing world because access to such education can have far reaching effects enabling students to be innovators, job creators, managers, and leaders in their country. Education for girls especially has been shown to delay early marriage, teenage pregnancy, and increase women’s participation in the formal workforce. Once employed, women have fewer children and invest their income in the family which means better nutrition, housing, and education for their children. In essence, I see education as key to ending poverty.
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 CK-12!
It was a super busy week here at CK-12 so we have a lot to share! Read on for more!

Friday has finally arrived! Wooo! We know it's been a busy few weeks with back to school and we completely understand if you haven't kept up with the happenings in STEM education. That's why those of us here, at CK-12 Foundation, like to do this Friday wrapups of STEM and general education news.
Let us bring you up to speed on some STEM education tidbits that we found interesting this week...
Welcome to CK-12! Let's take a minute to set a new school year resolution...
What do you want to do better? Incorporate more hands-on activities? Engage your students better? Teach the same topic using different modalities to reach the different types of learners in your class? Maybe your resolution is simply to save more time in your lesson planning. Do you have a specific resolution in mind?
This school year, regardless of what your resolution is, we bet CK-12 can help!
