Bookshare for Beginners8:00 am & 10:15 am

Learn how Bookshare helps students who face barriers to printed text because of visual impairments and physical and learning disabilities to embrace reading.

Make 2016 the Year of Fast, Easy, Independent Reading8:45 am & 11:00 am

Discover how quickly and easily your students with print disabilities can read thanks to Bookshare’s latest feature. Previously offered only to Individual Members, Bookshare Web Reader is now available to students on an organizational account and is the easiest way for members to read books independently at school and home. Using their own teacher-supplied logins, students simply find their book and select “Read Now” to read instantly in a browser.

Encourage Anywhere, Anytime Reading with Mobile Tools9:30 am & 11:45 am

For many students, using tablets, phones, and other devices is now second nature, and students with print disabilities are no exception. Capitalize on this trend by connecting your students with apps that make accessible reading quick and painless. Come and see how Read2Go, Go Read, and other tools help students read and learn at school, at home, and on the go.
