Our recent experiences of in-person, hybrid, and distance learning have highlighted the need for flexible, engaging literacy tools that promote equity, inclusion, and ease-of-access (for 1st graders and their parents!)  This session will focus on important considerations for digital literature for elementary schools including Section 508 standards for accessible online tools, real-human audio read-aloud and other supports for English Language Learners, inclusivity, support for educational standards, ability to differentiate for different reading levels, and multi-user access.  Attendees will receive one month of access to Capstone Connect, Capstone’s newest subscription including PebbleGo, a huge library of interactive eBooks, and teacher tools for K-5.
