Teacher using bookshare

I think it would be helpful for teachers to be able to download and read books so they can see and experience it from the student perspective. This process would allow teachers to model and support students in the learning process in a more effective and efficient way.

I agree with my fellow teachers who have posted. I'm a teacher at a school for blind - ALL students have an IEP and also have a Visual Impairment. Why can't I look at the books - especially textbooks? This would be very helpful from a teacher point of view. IF there is a way to do this, please tell me how.

Thanks!

Hello,

Sponsors can download books on behalf of their members, but they do not have access to the Bookshare Web Reader. In order to download a book that you have assigned to a member, please follow the steps below:

1. Log into your sponsor account.

2. Find the book you would like to access either in "reading lists" or by using the search bar at the top of the page.

3. Click on the "Download" button located in the "Action" column for the book you wish to download.

4. On the next page, check the box next to the name(s) of the member(s) for whom you wish to download the book and choose the file format you would like it to be downloaded in from the drop down menu in the last column.

5. Click the blue "Prepare Books" button and then click "Confirm" in the pop up window.

6. On the following page, wait for the loading symbol in the "status" column for the book to change to the word "Available." When this word appears, click on it to download the book to your computer.
