How I Use It
I assign articles from the online textbook to students via Google Classroom or Edmodo. Students can copy-and-paste articles and save in their Google Drive so that they may edit, critique, and annotate the article and keep a digital copy them at all times.
My Take
CK-12 allows me to utilize a online textbook that is fully compatible with Google Classroom. It can become a "flipped" lesson. Students can use it to reinforce content and study material. It is available wherever students have Internet, so not bulky textbooks needed!
