Books for every reader: How digital can make a difference
In the wake of upheaval caused by COVID-19, schools across the world faced a difficult decision at the beginning of the school year. Should they reopen and resume in-person lessons, or continue with remote instruction in some capacity, whether full-time or as part of a hybrid learning model? Though most schools in the U.K. have returned to in-person classes, it’s critical that they have contingencies in place so that no matter what, learners will have seamless access to as many learning resources as possible. This is when ebooks and audiobooks can make a huge impact.
In this webinar, OverDrive Education Account Manager Meredith Wemhoff and OverDrive Education Librarian Hannah Monson will show you how digital books can play a pivotal role in adapting your curriculum to the new education landscape. You’ll learn:
- How to empower students with always available access to ebooks and audiobooks, no matter where they are
- Tips for building an inclusive digital library that meets students’ unique reading needs
- How free digital marketing resources and flexible spending options can help you get the most out of your digital library
Meredith Wemhoff is an OverDrive Account Manager on the Global Libraries and Education team and has the pleasure of collaborating with schools in the United Kingdom to bring digital content to their entire school community. She holds a degree in Spanish education, and is passionate about supporting primary and secondary school teachers and leaders.
