According to a 2016 OverDrive and ASCD survey, educators across the country agree that they see at least one benefit in using eBooks and audiobooks over print in the classroom. The most commonly cited benefit was the ability to deliver individualized instruction.
Digital reading allows students to absorb content at their own pace. Students can explore learning online or offline, with familiar devices like a Chromebook™ or tablet.
For the youngest students, eBooks offer a gateway into a lifelong relationship with technology. OverDrive Education’s K-12 catalog provides over two million titles to choose from and eBooks come equipped with features such as an exportable note-taking and highlighting tool, a built-in dictionary, and a dyslexic font.
