Hi all, on the subject of education & technology...
I've always wondered why there are no Creative Commons, or similar
license, school books (that I know of anyway). One of the main costs of
education are books etc. and it would seem to me that a Math book isn't
going to change too often and that there would definitely be teachers
who would contribute to such a project.
I think an project modeled on what Oreilly are doing with SafariU
for Irish schools would be an incredible community resource.
Of course excellent content is the key here and there would likely be
resistance from the School Book business, but resistance is futile..
Anyway what do the ILUGers think?
