Capstone Digital, developer of personalized learning environments for students, has released a new way to encourage the love of reading.
myON reader doesn’t just put stories in front of students. Instead, each student is asked to fill out a questionnaire that helps identify that student’s interests, ability, preferred genre’s, and the like. myON then recommends stories for the student to read that will most likely catch and keep the student’s attention. Studies have shown that an engaged reader learns faster and retains more of the story.
Todd Brekhus, president of Capstone Digital, said: “Today’s students personalize their lives digitally on a daily basis through music, games and social networks. myON reader leverages those skills to engage students in an online, integrated reading environment using the same premise: digital personalization.
myON is an online platform that offers a growing library of more than 1,000 titles from Capstone imprints. Supported features include highlighting, audio and dictionary.
