CK-12 Recap from ISTE and NCSC 2013

  
  
  
  

Two weeks ago, a few of us at CK-12 Foundation had the pleasure of attending and exhibiting at ISTE in San Antonio, Texas and NCSC in Washington DC. We had the opportunity to meet with lots of familiar faces as well as spread the news about CK-12 STEM content to hundreds of new connections!STEM and CK-12

We were impressed with the number of teachers, tech coordinators and administrators we met who work in schools who have already or will soon go 1:1 with devices. We had a lot of fun sharing CK-12 STEM Flexbooks with them and showing how they can dowload textbooks and concepts to their devices. 

Here are a few of the questions we received and their answers: 

  1. What is a Flexbook? A Flexbook is a free, digital, standards-aligned STEM textbook that is fully customizeable. Flexbooks can be downloaded to any device for free. We've also broken our Flexbooks down into concepts, or bite-sized chunks of learning material. 
  2. We don't have iPads. How else can we use the content? All STEM Flexbooks and concepts are available on any device including, but not limited to: iPads, Kindles, Nooks, Android tablets, computers and smart phones. You can also easily print any of our content into traditional paper books.STEM and CK-12
  3. How much does it cost? All CK-12 STEM Flexbooks and concepts are 100% free. There is absolutely no charge for content or subscription. 
  4. What's the catch? There is none! CK-12 Foundation is a family-funded organization that gladly provides free STEM content and always will. Our goal is to make learning easier and more effective. 

We also had the opportunity to meet some of our super cool CK-12 Champions. Champions are people who not only use CK-12 Flexbooks and concepts, but also promote them to grow their usage.

We talked to them about some of the things they are doing to spread the CK-12 word. Activities include:
  • Meetings with other teachers and administrators
  • Speaking at conferences (one of them actually spoke at ISTE!)
  • Wearing a CK-12 t-shirt
  • Handing out CK-12 material at events and conferences
  • And more!
