BIBLIONASIUM ADDS MULTI-MEDIA CONTENT AND TOOLS TO FACILITATE BOOK DISCOVERY FOR YOUNG READERS
Just In Time to address the Summer Slide, Young Readers are Introduced to Books via Advanced Digital Tools
The COPPA Compliant Social Reading Website for Kids, partners with publishers to bring digital content to its audience
BiblioNasium, the fastest growing COPPA compliant, social reading network for young readers, is announcing the launch of new features that support multi-media content and tools for presenting stories and books to its audience of kids, their parents and educators.
These new features, such as the option to share author webcasts, book trailers, sample chapters online, group activities and other digital content, serve to add another dimension in encouraging and engaging kids about reading.
“There is a great deal of creative and valuable digital content generated by children’s book publishers, educators and also the kids, around books and we want to share those with our audience,” notes BiblioNasium Founder and Chief Executive Officer, Marjan Ghara. “We want to support the many ways this generation of digital kids can be introduced to books and excited about reading.”
BiblioNasium’s existing robust platform offers the best social networking features for children, in a safe and controlled environment. Children have the ability to catalogue, track and tag the books they read, as well as review and recommend books to the members of their community.
“Multi-media is increasingly used in classrooms and we as publishers offer many curriculum based digital content and activities around the themes of our books. BiblioNasium is a great platform for connecting this content to its audience”, says Marty Keltz, a former Senior Executive at Scholastic and now Co-Founder of Independent Publishing Group CritterKin.
Specifically designed for children (K-8th grade) BiblioNasium is a multiple award winning company. It’s mission is to help close the literacy gap for children by using the power of technology, social networking, digital content and gaming to encourage, engage, and excite them to become regular readers. Children are registered either through their educators or their parents, who have oversight and control over their activities on the site.
BiblioNasium was awarded Best Websites for Teaching & Learning by the AASL (American Association of School Librarians) and also won the Erudient Prize for Innovation in Global Education at the Milken/Penn GSE EdTech Startup competition. It was also recently awarded 2014 Literacy Support, Cool Tool by EdTechDigest.
