Over the past two school years, abrupt shifts between remote, hybrid and in-person learning forced schools to reimagine how to deliver instructional resources to students — and digital books helped meet a critical need. However, a return to in-person instruction doesn’t necessitate a return to the status quo. Digital books aren’t just a useful tool for the remote classroom. They’re also a critical tool in the fight to increase reading equity.

This session is a must-attend for anyone looking to build a digital library from the ground up or exploring new ways to leverage their existing ebook and audiobook catalog.

Attendees will be able to engage via session Q&A and have the opportunity to try a demo of Sora if they do not already offer it at their school/district.
