Our e Books are available on an unlimited, simultaneous basis, 24/7, on any inter-net enabled device.
This means that teachers at Dixon, where students have access to their own i pads, can select from these titles and always have enough for all their students to use, without the school having to buy multiple copies of the same book.
The improved hosting platform has made navigation between and within titles easier and the page appearance is vibrant and colorful.
Teachers may choose to project material from the e Book pages onto a screen for the whole class. They may be reading a story together or discussing charts and tables from a text. These books help our school embed technology into instruction while saving money on books.
E Books can be used simply to increase the number of books students can get their hands on. The school may be closed for a holiday but the e book library is still open and accessible.
Electronic books are unparalleled in how they can build confidence and self esteem in struggling readers. Success is credited to the ability, of some e books, to narrate the story, while allowing students to feel like they’re in control of what and when they read. When students listen, repeatedly, to a strong model of fluency, the better they internalize the skill.
