We're delighted to be holding regular webinars in collaboration with literacy experts to talk about how our amazing tools help you teach literacy in your classrooms, and to answer your questions about how to improve your own use of these tools. Participants in these free webinars will have the option to ask their questions live on video (you will need a microphone and webcam) or by submitting them through a Q&A Panel within the webinar. Our moderator will present the submitted questions to our experts. Be advised we may not have time to answer everyone’s questions, so we'd suggest thinking in advance about what questions you may have.

Below is our upcoming schedule for topics to be discussed. Don’t see a topic you’d like to learn more about? Let us know! Use this form to submit your ideas and perhaps you’ll see it in an upcoming session. Be sure to check back often as new topics will be added. Don’t worry if you miss a session; we’ll record each session and offer them for viewing afterwards.
