myON Updates and Literacy Toolkit

posted Nov 13, 2014, 5:27 AM by Susannah Moran
Yesterday's Wednesday Webinar was chock-full of information about the two recent myON updates. If you need to re-watch it, or share it with your school, here is the link for the recording.

We began with a look at our pilot and how our top schools are doing. Everyone got excited by the reading kids are doing!

Next, we looked at some of the biggest improvements in myON and discussed how they would impact teaching and learning. Some highlights include:
  • Updated Lexile assessments
  • New communication center for students to help them manage when they take their benchmark assessments
  • Book Player and Dictionary updates
  • New controls and reports for admins
and, of course, the introduction of the Literacy Toolkit which allows users to highlight text, add shapes and sticky notes, and keep a literacy journal, all right within the book player.
