Types of E-Reading Programs:

Our school and library projects start with a Worldreader E-Reading Solution. What's an e-reading solution? A BLUE Box or Book Pack contains everything needed to bring digital reading to a school or library: e-readers, e-books, and Worldreader’s expertise. Find out more.

Individual

Individual programs allow students to have their own e-readers, providing maximum impact. In certain cases, schools permit students to take their e-readers home.

See the case study:

Shared

Shared programs let e-readers be shared between students within classrooms and school libraries. This e-reading model increases student exposure and encourages group work.

See the case study:

Community

Community programs often serve community members of all ages, ranging from children to adults, at public libraries or community resource centers. Community programs can allow patrons to check out e-readers, if they please.

The Early and Transitional Reading Programs team is responsible for getting digital books into schools and libraries in the developing world. We design Worldreader’s E-Reading Solutions, deliver them, ensure their implementation, and monitor their continued success.

Essential to this success is the involvement of the schools, libraries, and operational partners that utilize these e-reading solutions. The Early and Transitional Reading Programs team develops and maintains these essential partnerships while also continually innovating the suite of technologies that enhance Worldreader’s school and library e-reading projects.
