Schools are embracing digital books at an accelerated pace for the instant access to assigned titles they provide all students – both in-class and those participating in distance learning.
However, it can feel a bit daunting to understand the different options available. How do you determine the right platform and mix of titles all while staying within budget?
The simplest way is by getting advice from experts who have already successfully done it.
In this eye-opening webinar, you’ll hear from Kim King, director of virtual learning & media services for the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools, who will share her district’s experience powering their curriculum with digital books. Topics will include:
- Delivering students one-to-one access to curriculum anchor texts and a circulating collection of supplemental titles.
- Leveraging digital books to build students’ content knowledge and enthusiasm for reading
- Linking to titles and collections directly from the learning platform
This is a can’t miss session for educators looking at best practices for utilizing digital books to support their curriculum. Register today!
