Introducing myON, Renaissance Learning's Digital Library
We have a new online resource for students!
All students have had an email from Mrs Goodwin with guidance for login including their usernames and passwords.
This Digital Library is available to students anytime, anywhere, even throughout the summer holidays, as long as they have a device with an internet browser. There is a link to it on Student Quicklinks. There are thousands of exciting books available all the time, no waiting lists or reservations. There is a high proportion of non-fiction (information) books, also short fiction books, graphic novels and a selection of challenging classic fiction. The information books cover a very wide range of interests, useful for 'just interested' or for project work.
A huge benefit is that if KS3 students who have their ZPD (Accelerated Reader reading range) connect this, myON will recommend books to the student according to their interests and within their reading ability range - and then prompt them to take a quiz to check their understanding.
myON is multi-functioning: many of the books have audio so that students can listen while they follow the text, then can enlarge the pages, use dictionary tools, make notes in their own journal, and create their own reading lists. myON remembers the last book they read, and where they got to. It also tells students how much time they have spent reading and how many pages they have read in the session. Students can even download up to twenty books to read offline.
This brilliant resource can be used by any Dene Magna students but is particularly useful for those who prefer to read non-fiction and less confident readers who would like to improve their reading skills.
Please encourage your student to log in and have a look at what's available - if they are a reluctant reader, this site may well have them enjoying reading!
