Bookshare has always been one of my favorite resources for accessing digital content and I loved it even more after OSEP funding allowed them to offer the service for FREE to our students with disabilities. If you’re unfamiliar with the program, feel free to look over this tutorial from my session Bookshare: Providing Digital Books for Students with Special Needs. This is from an educational session I will be offering at the Partners in Education Conference sponsored by the TN Department of Education in Nashville next month. If you’ll visit their site and click on the ‘Getting Started’ tab, there are terrific links and resources there to answer most all of your questions, as well as a YouTube channel full of quick video tutorials. So, sign up and get those kids the materials they want in the format they need with Bookshare!
