In my last Tech Tip, I wrote about the 1,200 eBooks that are available through INFOhio for students in grades 3-6. But what about high school students? Exciting news for INFOhio students and educators at the high school level! Licensed through the RemoteEDx initiative, the EBSCO Ebook High School Collection is accessible through the INFOhio website.
This robust collection provides students and educators with full-text eBook coverage that aligns with your school’s curricula. Gain fast and easy access to over 12,000 eBooks that support a quality learning experience across all academic subject areas, including history, language, literature, science, and technology. Content includes a selection of classic literary works, important historical documents, and general reference materials.
What’s nice about the EBSCO eBook High School Collection is that students have unlimited and simultaneous access to all these eBooks. With simultaneous access, teachers have the flexibility to assign class-wide readings.
Research students can benefit from the built-in citation tool that makes citing work a breeze, as well as the Notetaking feature that assists students with research by allowing them to take notes on eBooks and save them to their My EBSCOhost folder for later viewing.
Struggling readers and auditory learners comprehend best when print and sound are presented together, so using their device’s built-in screen reader to have the text read aloud to them will be a great benefit.
How to Access the Collection
You can access the High School eBook Collection from the INFOhio homepage (INFOhio.org) and click on the Grades 9 – 12 resource button.
From the Grades 9 – 12 resources page locate the EBSCO Ebook High School Collection tile and click the “i” button in the top right corner.
