Diverse eBooks for Early Readers

Written by // Emily Rozmus Tuesday, 29 September 2020

This award-winning book tells the story of Peter and the adventures he has on a snowy day. Readers young and old can imagine the red snow-suited figure of a young boy playing in the wintry city. Many will also remember that Peter is an African-American child, and recognize that childhood delights are not determined by race, location, or gender. Everyone has fun in the snow.

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.

Make sure you make the most of BookFlix by taking training designed just for busy teachers and resource-strapped schools and districts.

Reading on the Screen: Why Supporting Digital Natives Matters!

Written by // Emily Rozmus Wednesday, 13 December 2017

Today's digital natives are primarily "tech comfy." Teens may need to show adults how to use SnapChat, but age and experience help adults know more about how to evaluate the content on this platform and other digital spaces.

In order to create critical thinkers who are able to comprehend, analyze, and evaluate digital content, educators must be intentional in preparing  students for 21st century learning. That includes reading content on the screen from a variety of sources—blogs, social media posts, databases, articles, and forums.

To learn more about the Summer Slide, try a search for “summer slide” or “summer learning loss” in ISearch (use your school or district's INFOhio username and password if prompted).
