Prior to school closures, many American students were not reading enough to get to proficient literacy levels. In our current reality, this number is even greater. For some students, access to high-quality texts may have decreased more over the past months. As instruction has turned remote, educators can lean on digital resources to serve as a means for ensuring that all students get the exposure to the texts they need. This presentation describes how digital resources can serve as a bridge to accelerate learning and bring students “back to the page.”
In this edWebinar, learn:
- How increased exposure to texts can minimize learning loss and potential summer slump
- How to use technology to address the gap in reading fluency and access to texts
- How to leverage features of digital resources to differentiate and target specific literacy skills
- How to accelerate learning gains and engagement with game-based, digital programs
This recorded edWebinar will be of interest to preK through elementary teachers, librarians, and school and district leaders.
