July 12th, 2013

From eSchool News staff reports

At the 2013 International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) conference in San Antonio last month, a number of ed-tech companies introduced new curriculum software products, or enhancements to existing curriculum software. Here are some of the highlights.

Capstone Digital discussed enhancements to its myON reader, a complete literacy solution that gives students anytime, anywhere access thousands of award-winning digital books online. The enhancements include apps that Untitledthat enable students to access the service from any Android device and even the Kindle Fire HD. (An iPad app already was available.)

myON is a personalized literacy environment offering more than 5,000 enhanced digital books from more than 32 publishers. Its intelligent technology suggests new books for students to read, based on their indicated preferences and their ratings of books they’ve already read—like Netflix for reading. The digital platform also makes parental involvement easy, and students in one-to-one computing programs who don’t have home internet access can download books offline for at-home access.
