Read2Go

What’s It Like? Read2Go is an ebook reader for students who need help reading print. It’s one of a number of ways to download and read books from the Bookshare Library. Upon setting up a student’s membership, teachers are asked to determine and save just a few settings, like font size and the voice used for audio playback. Teachers only need to enter their students’ information into Read2Go once. From that point forward, any registered student can browse and search in the library, then download and read books independently with just one touch. A search can also generate a list of choices pre-selected by a teacher.

Price: $20

Grades: K-12

Pros: An intuitive interface gets kids into their reading simply and quickly.

Cons: Access is limited only to those with a Bookshare subscription.

Bottom line: Although it doesn’t contain its own learning content, Read2Go opens doors for kids who struggle with reading.
