Education Week FREE Live Chat: Are Digital Textbooks Starting to Click? / March 9 2010 / 2 PM Eastern

Tuesday / March 9 2010 / 2 PM / Eastern Time

Although advocates of digital textbooks have been touting their advantages for years, it wasn’t until California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger announced a free, digital textbook initiative that the movement began to gain real traction in mainstream schools. But some experts say digital textbooks’ lack of purchase price can be offset by the cost of technical support and professional development needed to integrate them effectively into classrooms. Join two experts for an in-depth discussion of the challenges and promise of using free, digital textbooks in K-12 classrooms.

Guests:

Brian Bridges, Director, California Resource Learning Network

Neeru Kholsa, Executive Director, CK-12 Foundation

Katie Ash, Staff Writer, Education Week Digital Directions, will moderate this chat.
