eBook Educators Group

where educators come to learn from one another

Is it possible to use this forum to collectively compile a group of tools for use by students on a Kindle? I am thinking of research and developing as PDF files or mobi. files various reference charts and tools that would be useful for a variety of age groups.

I found a number of math formulae through a search on About.com and there are also many variations of the Periodic Chart of the Elements as an example. Is there a public domain version of Roget's Thesaurus that we could convert using Calibre as well as a collection of music reference charts?

If there was a place to upload resources and make them available for all, it would serve as a useful tool for everyone.

That would be great. I have collected some myself. I believe that teacher created references would also be useful with full credit provided to that teacher/district of creation. I have been in touch with the State University of New York at Cortland, NY (SUNY Cortland) and they are very interested in working on such a compilation for the implementation of ereaders in a classroom environment. Let's take the ball and run with it.

Google Books has an amazing number of "academic support/reference texts" that are in the public domain. We could create a collection here for folks to use.
