Multi-Modalities are Here!
Beginning this month, we at CK-12 are excited about the launch of our new, multi-modality platform, available for the majority of our expanding STEM concepts.
Some of the features of Multi-Modality Concepts:
1. Flashcards from StudyBlue
2. Study Guides - Teacher and Student Contributed
3. Videos and Multimedia
4. Critical Thinking - Questions submitted from Students
5. Exercises - Test your Knowledge of the Concept
Whether students learn best by reading, watching a lecture, or playing around with interactive models, CK-12 provides the ideal resources for them.

Here's What's New
|SHARE: Now, you can share - via Twitter, Facebook, or E-mail - components/modalities from individual concepts with family, friends, and fellow students. Create your own customized groups as well. Click on the Share arrow, as seen.|
|RATE: When in a particular modaility, use the Thumbs Up or Thumbs Down to indicate favorability. Note: You do need to be signed in to CK-12 to perform this function.|
CK-12 and Braingenie are One!
|Braingenie builds deep mastery and sharpens problem-solving skills through the most comprehensive K-12 math and science practice content. We have recently added links on the Braingenie skill pages (videos and practices) to comparable material on CK-12's main site as well. Check it out!|
|NOVA revolves around a simple premise: the world of science is exciting! This award-winning, PBS program (produced by WGBH Boston) has partnered with CK-12, aligning selected video content with our concepts.|
Here is an example from the Concept "Fish" - this NOVAvideo helps in overcoming misconceptions about sharks.
NASA: Special Recognition with CK-12
|Continuing our groundbreaking partnership with NASA, 30 contributors and developers of the FlexBook entitled "Modeling and Simulation for High School Teachers: Principles, Problems, and Lesson Plans," were honored for their efforts at a ceremony that took place on August 10th at NASA Headquarters in Washington, D.C.|
|"If it wasn't for your experience and your passion for sharing knowledge, we might not be here today," Lesa Roe, Director of NASA Langley, said proudly. "Your combined efforts will have a positive and lasting impact as teachers - and states - across the nation work toward improving their science standards."|
