In this episode, we explore technology and the classroom. Specifically, we will be learning about the use of ebooks and how they can be used in a more cost efficient and productive way for schools. We will hear from Secretary of Education Arne Duncan and the founder of CK12 on the subject of eTextbooks. Our guest this week is Josh Franco, master teacher from Immanuel Schools in Reedley Ca, who will share his experience in the classroom with CK12 eTextbooks. Last summer, Josh created and published six STEM textbooks for Immanuel High School using the resources from CK12.
