TEA and Renaissance Partner to Provide Students Access to Thousands of Digital Books and News Articles this Summer
Students and families will have unlimited access to age-appropriate reading materials developed for pre-K through grade 12
WISCONSIN RAPIDS, Wis. (June 23, 2020) – Renaissance and the Texas Education Agency (TEA), today announced an initiative to provide students across the state access to thousands of digital books and daily news articles this summer.
Through this partnership, students and their families can read on the myON by Renaissance platform using a shared account. They will have unlimited access to enhanced digital books in English and Spanish, with optional reading supports like naturally-recorded audio, text-highlighting, and an embedded dictionary.
Daily news articles in English and Spanish with multimedia resources are also available on the platform. All news articles are reviewed by a child psychologist for age-appropriate content.
To read on myON, students just need the login credentials found on these student-friendly bookmarks, available in English and Spanish. Students can access myON on almost any device and even download up to 20 digital books at a time for offline reading.
“We couldn’t be more excited to work with educators across the great state of Texas,” said Chris Bauleke, CEO of Renaissance. “We’re thrilled that so many families and their children will get to experience myON for the first time this summer—helping parents keep their children engaged, learning, and prepared for fall.”
