Partnership will provide content to supplement middle and high school curriculums

reading-platformCricket Media, an education media publisher, and myON, a business unit of Capstone, announced that a wide array of content from Cricket’s portfolio of children’s books and magazines will now be available to the millions of students reading on myON.

With the additional content from Cricket, myON now offers more than 8,000 titles from nearly 70 publishers through their publisher program.

Cricket Media’s content increases myON’s collection of short-form passages increasingly sought after by educators. Cricket will provide literary and informational texts from its digital library, including content from its children’s publications, Cobblestone and Odyssey.

Earlier this year, The Parents’ Choice Foundation selected each of Cricket’s 13 magazines as 2015 Parents’ Choice Awards winners.

myON, a personalized literacy platform, provides online access to more than 5.5 million students world wide. Students can access myON at school or home on laptops, desktops, tablets, and mobile devices for an online or offline reading experience.

myON creates a collaborative reading environment where students, educators and parents work together to support student reading performance by leveraging reading supports–embedded dictionary, naturally recorded audio, highlighting, digital literacy tools and metrics. Students also have access to a safe social network where they can read, rate, review, and recommend books to classmates.

Once implemented, school districts benefit from unlimited and concurrent access to all digital books within the literacy environment, accessible on laptops, computers, and mobile devices for both on and offline reading.
