Your child’s education doesn’t have to stop in a book, there’s a cornucopia of educational apps that will keep your child’s mind active in and outside the classroom! My boys are visual learners and love to learn with educational apps. I will go to great lengths to get them to read, often. They love reading books and they enjoy reading ebooks, especially when they get a chance to create their own ebooks! One such app is the newly launched eBook Plaza from PreK12 Plaza, a new, free, bilingual, multimedia resource, providing teachers and parents with blended lessons supporting English-language standards.
The eBook Plaza app provides free access to hundreds of eBooks in six reading levels each, in English and Spanish. In addition, it allows students to create their own eBooks, adding text, images, and their own voices.
The benefits of eBooks and blended learning are many! Your child will have the opportunity to work independently while improving phonemic awareness and print-concept awareness. They will also develop literacy skills while increasing engagement at all levels. Most importantly, blended learning can result in improved student success, satisfaction, and retention.
Your child will also have the opportunity to get those creative juices flowing by making their own eBooks, adding to the hundreds of books already in the app in English and Spanish.
The free eBook Plaza app is available on iTunes, Google Play and Amazon Marketplace. Additional information and downloads are available at: PreK12Plaza (English) or Plaza Bilingüe (Spanish) You can learn more about PreK12Plaza and follow them on social media: Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest.
