It’s never been easier to buy, read, and read about books we want to buy, so why is reading on the decline? Because, all too often, more screen means less reading time. It doesn’t have to be that way.

Rather than resist screen time altogether, let’s harness the power of these devices by tuning into what makes them so compelling for today’s young digital natives. This asset-based approach to device-based reading is helping re-shape what the future of reading looks like.

In this edWebinar, we will discuss what the future of reading requires:

  • Easy, instant access to a diverse range of books
  • Global libraries that quickly become personal libraries centered on individual student needs and interests
  • Social components that redefine what literacy engagement looks like
  • Easy, pre-built interactions aligned to standards

Join our edWebinar to explore, discuss, and experience research-informed, classroom-tested approaches to stimulate lifelong reading habits in K-12 students. A special offer to pilot Glose for Education will be extended to all educator-attendees.

The presentation will be of interest to K-12 educators, librarians, and curriculum and instructional leaders.
