It is encouraging to see how more and more schools are recognizing digital textbooks as an economical choice and strongly encouraging, if not mandating, their use. Several States are supporting this initiative. In fact Florida has proposed that all #K-12 classrooms be outfitted with digital textbooks by 2015. Backing this initiative are organizations like #CK-12 Foundation, a non-profit organization based in California with a mission to produce free and open source K-12 materials to meet student and teacher needs.

Feedback and some more copyright resources

Congratulations on your initiative, it must be so exciting and I am sure readers are finding this detailed description to be really useful- I know *I* am. Copyright education is SO important for faculty and it is great to see you highlighting it. However, teachers are not well served in getting a chart in telling them what they can and can NOT do re fair use. For teachers to have a good understanding of fair use they need to understand that charts are not the law and can not substitute for a solid understanding of how fair use applies to digital learning. I have changed my approach to this topic by sharing resources from the Media Education Lab and this wikispace that help teachers understand not only what the law says but what they and their students CAN do with copyrighted materials UNDER that law. Happy to share more, but I encourage you (and your readers) to take advantage of how the law supports teaching and learning in a digital age by exploring these resources!

Enjoying the series so far. Looking forward to the remaining 3 articles.

FYI: the link to the first article at the top of the page has a trailing quote symbol ("), so it results in a 404 error...
