As we wrap up the strangest of school years, now is the time to use what we’ve learned about distance learning to make the summer months really count. This edWebinar will look at ways that teachers can customize digital summer reading programs for every student, measure their progress, and connect them to reading and to each other. We’ll look at best practices from around the country, explore the role of ebooks and how they are changing the definition of engagement, and highlight tech-based strategies teachers can use to foster genuine excitement for even the most reluctant readers.
This edWebinar is designed for teachers, librarians, and school and district leaders of middle and high school. There will be time to have your questions answered at the end of the presentation.
