Re: open-source labs and homework

A primary source of information on K-12 science and math instructional
materials is available at the Eisenhower National Clearinghouse site
You may want to consider a link with them.

I'm very gratified by the positive responses I've gotten
about this idea, both on- and off-list, and I've gone ahead and
set up a web page and an e-mail list; their URLs are given below,
along with a blurb about the project. Some of you will find that
your work is already linked to from the web page.

I hope you'll be as excited as I am about the
possibilities for cooperation that this project can open up,
and that you'll go ahead and subscribe to the e-mail list.
Possible topics of discussion once the list gets under way:
- What other resources can we link to from the OPE
web page?
- discussion of open-source licenses
- discussion of print-to-order and other types of
nontraditional publishing
- Methods of developing new teaching materials: What
has worked and what hasn't? What lessons can we
learn from the open-source software movement?
