Darren Criss has announced the release of his first solo project in more than seven years, an indie EP titled “Homework.”

The Emmy-nominated “Glee” actor and musical artist said he named the EP “Homework” primarily for two reasons. “For starters, I made it mostly at home. Whether writing or recording it at my own place or at friends’, it’s about as homegrown as you can get. It was produced mostly with real live instruments, getting back to what really started my life as a songwriter in the first place — guitars and pianos and words and music,” Criss said in a message to his fans. “The main idea behind this was to embrace me just being me as much as possible in the hopes of it reaching you in some kind of positive way.”

“Secondly, homework always took me way too long to do. It’s true what they say — an artist’s work is never done,” he continued. “It never feels ‘done’ until it’s out there for someone else to experience. And so here I am, ‘finishing’ it by releasing it into the world, and encouraging it to live its own life with you. You who have waited very patiently and supported me tirelessly through the years– my family and friends from school growing up in San Francisco, my friends from college in Ann Arbor, the fans that kicked off my career and the new ones that are interested into diving a little deeper into my backstory. This one’s for you. So here, I did some homework.”

From now until midnight on Friday, Dec. 15, Criss will be signing all physical copies of the CD through the pre-sale of an exclusive CD and merch bundle, which includes the signed CD with a pullout poster as well as a pencil bag, pencil, eraser, notebook, and pencil sharpener printed with lyrics from the EP. On Dec. 15, the bundles will start shipping and the EP will be released on all digital music platforms. Pre-sale tickets and meet-and-greet passes for Criss’ release day show in Los Angeles are available now.

Computer Games, Criss’ band which also includes his brother, released a music video starring Gaten Matarazzo of “Stranger Things” earlier this year. Today, Criss also released a music video — shot at his own home — for “I Don’t Mind,” the fourth track on the upcoming EP. Beyond his musical endeavors, Criss is set to star at Andrew Cunanan in the second installment of Ryan Murphy’s “American Crime Story” franchise, “The Assassination of Gianni Versace.”

School axes textbooks as pupils download homework onto their mobile phones

A school is getting rid of textbooks and encouraging pupils to download homework onto their mobile phones instead.

The new Hackney City Academy wants to eliminate the need for heavy rucksacks and is introducing curriculum texts that pupils can access through their mobile phone SIM cards and home computers.

The scheme for 'E-books' has been launched primarily to save on the huge costs of buying and replacing hundreds of books every year.

New age of learning: Headteacher Mark Emmerson said his school will get rid of textbooks and replace them with downloadable files

Academy headteacher Mark Emmerson is pioneering the E-books in his school, which is due to open next September.

Researchers at the University of Aberystwyth's computer department and text book publishers are developing the online editions and expect them to be up and running in time for the school to open its doors.

Mr Emmerson said: 'It will be as simple as downloading a ringtone to their SIM card, something practically all teenagers will now know how to do.

'You see people on the trains reading E-book versions of novels they have downloaded all the time. We are simply applying the same technology in the class room.

'The majority of pupils have their own mobile phones and access to internet at home. Homework requires usually only one or two pages of a book at a time, so it won't require too much information.

'Instead of pupils taking home a copy they simply go to a site and download the relevant information.'

Mr Emmerson said that traditional paper copies would still be available for pupils without mobiles and home computers. Internet access in the school would also be available to every pupil.

Textbooks will still be used by teachers and will be in school, but they will be very much as reference books not standard issue to pupils. Pupils will use PDFs of the pages they are working on in class or computers.

'We will still have some textbooks, but providing copies to every pupil is too expensive', Mr Emmerson said.

'This scheme will harnesses the latest technology and provide the ideal solution. We are only encouraging pupils to use their phones just for their homework. They still won't be allowed to use them in school.'

Health campaigners have highlighted the dangers that carrying over-loaded rucksacks can have on children's developing spines, while the lockers which line the corridors of every school are often seen as a security hazard.

Textbooks will be put on the schools internal internet site and pupils will access this online either on their laptop or phone.

It can then be saved to the SIM card, or downloaded to a computer, and used at any time by the student.
