The award-winning personalized literacy platform is now available to Canadian educators and students

(Minneapolis, MN) July 12, 2017 — myON, leading provider of digital literacy solutions, and NELSON, Canada’s leading education provider, have entered into a strategic partnership to personalize literacy learning for pre-kindergarten to 8th-grade classrooms. NELSON will take an exclusive role in sales, support, professional development, and marketing of the myON personalized literacy platform in Canada.

 We pride ourselves on providing access to the most engaging titles available to students throughout the world,” said Todd Brekhus, president of myON. “Through our partnership with NELSON, Canadian students will have 24/7/365 access to over 10,000 digital books with innovative supports to further engage in learning and support their academic achievement.”

The unlimited access that myON’s users receive through their digital literacy ecosystem complements NELSON’s long-standing, pedagogically sound learning products. With their individual accounts, students will have access to an enhanced digital reading experience through a digital library customized to their individual interests and reading ability. Literacy tools within the platform support independent reading and project-based learning modules. Educators can access embedded metrics to monitor each student’s reading activity to gain analytics and insights to inform teaching and student development.

“All of us at Nelson recognize and value the growing importance of personalized reading and learning in today’s modern classroom,” said Steve Brown, NELSON President and CEO. “Our partnership with myON will enable us to further augment our digital literacy offering, and deliver on our commitment to ensuring that Canadian classrooms have access to world-class resources and learning experiences."
