Using Read Live for Distance Learning


Webinar Video: Using Read Live in a distance-learning model


Presented August 26, 2020 by Ben Weisner, Senior Solutions Manager.

Many K-12 schools continue to depend on virtual schooling at the start of the new school year. Fortunately, Read Naturally provides an effective online learning resource that teachers, learners, and parents can take advantage of outside the classroom.

As a web-based program, Read Live is ideally suited for use in a distance-learning model. Teachers can set up Read Live so that students access their lessons from any iPad or computer. Students work through the independent steps of the program on their own and collaborate with a teacher (or parent) on the steps requiring teacher involvement. Together, the teacher and the student determine the combination that works best for each learner.
