Questions and opportunities surround the still-nascent iPad textbook market. T.H.E. Journal looked at the offerings from the 'big three' publishers--Pearson, McGraw-Hill, and HMH--to discern where the industry is, and where it might be headed.

Last post I mentioned the Geometry in Construction group from Loveland, CO and how they closely mirror many of the things that are done in Manufacturing and other pathways.  This time I would like continue with some of their resourcse available on the Conceptual Learning Concepts web site.  Under their "Downloads" section you will find a number of resources that might give you a inside look at how blending academics with CTE can be done and not spend all year trying to do it.  http://www.contextuallc.com/page8/page8.html

Check out their other resources and let me know if you are interested in learning more, bringing them in as a speaker, or having our own workshop in KS.  mkollman@ksde.org
