California’s Digital Textbook Initiative, Phase 2

The California Learning Resource Network (CLRN) has just released the draft report for Phase 2 California’s digital textbook initiative. This second phase of the initiative covered reviews of digital textbooks on history, economics, social studies, and other social sciences. Phase 1 was announced last spring, and its report was released in August. It covered the hard sciences: physics, chemistry, algebra, calculus, etc. You can find the phase 1 report here.

Do you know the best part about this program? It's a review of free digital textbooks for high schools. I went to high school in California; one of my textbooks was older than me. I'm not complaining, just illustrating their budget problems.

Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader:"I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."
