Get the Most Out of BookFlix with Training Designed Just for You

Written by // Emily Rozmus Wednesday, 07 November 2018

When INFOhio licensed the quality eBooks from Scholastic's BookFlix for all Ohio students, parents and teachers five years ago, we knew we were into something good. With over 130 fiction and nonfiction pairs of popular titles, BookFlix is a resource that engages students, even reluctant readers, and brings them back again and again to read, listen to, and learn from digital text. With a new interface and helpful features, BookFlix is now more user friendly than ever! And INFOhio users sure love the new interface. October 2018 was one of the highest use months BookFlix has had, and Ohio students, teachers, and parents make it our most used resource overall.

Are you feeling excited by the idea of this great digital content available to you at no cost? Intrigued by integrating technology into your reading time, but still not sure how to start? Make sure you make the most of BookFlix by taking training designed just for busy teachers and resource-strapped schools and districts. INFOhio has created the BookFlix Class in the INFOhio K-5 Digital Content Learning Pathway to accommodate both individual teachers and groups of staff members who want to learn BookFlix basics and design instruction around digital content.
