Good news! District Administration (DA) Magazine has announced its 2011 Readers’ Choice Top 100 Products awards, and Bookshare is one of the winners! After conducting a thorough review of hundreds of submissions and research into the products, the editorial staff picked Bookshare as one of the Top 100. The winners include products for districts of all sizes and technologies for many uses, from information systems to assistive technologies. It is a great honor to be included in such a list! We thank DA for recognizing the benefits Bookshare offers students with disabilities.
Nominations require testimonials from school administrators that explain the impact of a product or a service on a district and students. Other than the one quote posted with the announcement, we don’t know who submitted testimonials on our behalf, or what they said, but we thank all of our nominators!
With his submission, Randy Pine, IEP teacher, District 27Q (N.Y.), said, “Bookshare has leveled the playing field for students with reading disabilities. All students can now take part in discussions and for the first time for most, feel positive about themselves and their school experience.” His words echo the sentiments we hear from educators around the country.
You can read more about the nomination and selection process on the DA website.
