Four Steps to Improve Equity and Close the Digital Gap with a Shared eBook & Audiobook Collection
Districts making the shift to digital need resources that support access, equity and affordability. By considering a few key questions, successful shared eBook and audiobook collections can address these issues. To meet the reading and learning needs of all students, there must be a diverse catalog of titles available for purchase. To address varied device programs at schools, the platform must be device agnostic. To bridge the WiFi gap at home, there must be a download option for offline reading. Sara Gold, WiLS K-12 Community Liaison/Service Specialist, will detail the creation of the Wisconsin Schools Digital Library Consortium using these guidelines and how the project came to to fruition with vision, planning and patience. Sydney Kalnay, Training Specialist from OverDrive Education, will discuss launch stages: authentication/content, training and marketing your collection to ensure student engagement.
