See what Angela Wojtecki, District Library Media Specialist for Nordonia Hills City Schools, thinks about Kids InfoBits:
“This is a comprehensive, paid subscription resource which helps teach research skills to younger students in a safe and reliable online environment. Teachers will enjoy the easy search process and the breadcrumb trail left for students to visually see the path of their searches. Students will enjoy the ability to hear the article read to them using the ReadSpeaker text-to-speech tool, available in every search result and article. Content can be easily shared with students via Google Classroom and Microsoft integration. Students can also easily bookmark articles for research projects or save them to their Google Drive. Another feature is the ability to filter based on content levels – such as basic, intermediate, or advanced Lexile level. This allows for easy differentiation, as each content level is clearly marked with one of three distinct shapes. Schools will find that this resource meets the research needs of younger students in one developmentally appropriate package.”
