Lerner Digital Enhances Lerner Interactive Books
MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. – Lerner Digital, a division of Lerner Publishing Group, today announced enhancements to its Lerner Interactive Books product line, as well as updates to the Lerner Digital eReader App for the iPad. Effective immediately, all Lerner Interactive Books now include a third audio speed to model pronunciation and fluency while helping beginning readers, struggling readers, and English Language Learners build reading skills and confidence. All school customers that have previously purchased Lerner Interactive Books from the Company and its distributors will automatically receive the new enhanced versions at no charge.
Launched in June 2010, Lerner Interactive Books have been adopted in nearly 2,500 elementary and middle schools across the country. Lerner Interactive Books are the first in the school market with three adjustable speeds to support the reading skills of nearly every learner. Students can adjust the reading pace—from behind-grade-level to on-grade-level to an adult read-aloud speed. As readers progress, they may increase the pace of the audio, as well as turn off the audio and read out loud along with the highlighted text. This graduating audio option helps striving readers improve their literacy skills at their pace while building reading confidence.
