Reading is a lifelong skill that is critical to student success. Not until myON reader was launched was a program able to personalize learning and provide books and assessments digitally. Launched in 2011, myON reader is a personalized literacy environment that matches students to a recommended book list based on their interests and reading level that provides anytime, anywhere access on any device. The myON platform uses the MetaMetrics Lexile® Framework for Reading to provide valid and reliable embedded assessments and scientifically based predictions of future reading abilities. 

During this session you will:

  • Preview the largest online digital library with reading supports—professional recorded audio, dictionary and highlighting—and the embedded assessments that allow educators and students to track reading growth.
  • Learn how one district that started to implement technology added myON reader and is now observing astronomical reading results.
  • Discover how myON reader is building a community of readers in Hillsborough County Florida through a partnership with the school district and community partners to provide anytime, anywhere access to all children in the county.
