Open source textbooks are not going away as grants and other things continue to happen in this arena. The momentum is shifting. In this NASBE received a Hewlett Foundation grant to help states revise frameworks to allow inclusion of Open Education resources. If you work with state standards from the state level, perhaps you might want to contact the NASBE.
Hat tip to my friend Janet Grtonneberg at CAST for sending me this one.
US public school teachers - here is a contest for you.
"Please invite all the public school teachers you know to visit www.catalogs.com/teachers and answer the question: “Why does your class deserve to win a gift certificate from eNasco.com and how will you put the school supplies to good use?”
Participants have the opportunity to win up to $2,500 in school supplies for their classrooms."
