Thinking Beyond eTextbooks

Artículo sobre el informe Out of Print: Reimagining the K-12 Textbook in a Digital Age (PDF) de la SETDA (State Educational Technology Directors Association). Como dice la autora, "el propósito original del libro de texto era distribuir contenidos en una época de escasez de la información". Vía @jordi_a.

I love the fact that they are recommending a shift that considers all digital resources –rather than just replacing a print textbook with an electronic one (with perhaps some embedded multimedia elements for good measure). They recommend districts should develop a vision that "looks beyond textbooks alone and considers flexibility, quality, and effectiveness of ALL materials."
