Many teachers and educators are already discovering that Booktrack Classroom is a great tool for digital learning, so it's no surprise that libraries are also starting to explore how they can best use Booktrack and Booktrack Classroom to cater to readers and writers.
Here are just some of the amazing feedback we've been getting from librarians and digital educators on social media:

Don't take their word for it though, try out Booktrack Classroom for yourself! Getting started is easy. Just sign up for a teacher account at www.booktrackclassroom.com, and you can start adding "students" to your digital classroom.
Booktrack Classroom is a closed educational platform, which means that Booktracks created by the students you have added to your class are private and can only be read by you and other members of the class. There are also a variety of free tools on offer, such as free lesson plans for all levels of students.
Libraries interested in running holiday programs with older students, and those looking to share their stories with a wider worldwide audience can sign up to Booktrack Studio, our global publishing platform for authors.
