The Most Epic Digital Library For Kids and Educators

Today most kids prefer screen time to any other sort of entertainment.

Children aged 5 to 16 on average spend 6.5 hours a day in front of a screen as compared to 3 hours in 1995. This fact is no longer shocking, but still quite disturbing.

Yet, we can hardly imagine our life without technology and it implies increased screen time.

Technology has a profound impact on education as well.

So if we cannot fight this phenomenon, then we should embrace it and make sure the benefits outweigh the drawbacks.

How to NOT waste your kid’s screen time?

Start by monitoring and managing the platforms your kids are on. But most importantly we need to encourage them to use high quality educational apps that are both fun and useful.

Usually good apps come with a price. But quite often they are worth it.

As parents and educators we are responsible for what our children are exposed to when browsing their smart devices. So we need to source the best quality apps or websites and pitch them to our children.

Luckily there is a wide variety to choose from.

One of my favorite educational apps that I personally use and recommend is Epic!

What is this Epic! app?

Epic! is an ebook app specifically designed for kids aged 12 and under. In fact it is not just an app, but a whole platform, an extensive digital library of hand-picked, high quality books that will spark every kid’s interest in reading.

With Epic! you have unlimited access to more than 25,000 quality books at a fixed monthly subscription rate.

You no longer have to purchase and download these books one by one. They are all in your personal library that you can take anywhere.

Why I love Epic! Digital Library?

Aside from the many cool features I will list below, Epic! stands out from similar apps with its multi-platform accessibility.

Don’t have an iPad or a Kindle? No problem! You can use it on laptop or PC, online or offline.

What else is there to love? A lot.

Let’s dive in.

Variety of formats and a growing library

While eBooks are the main content on Epic! platform, there also tons of high-quality and popular children’s learning videos, teacher-created quizzes, audio content, teacher-curated collections and more.

And this library is growing every day.

These many learning formats encourage children to discover and learn on their own.

Personalization

On Epic! all children get their own profiles. Once they start exploring and reading, the platform analyzes their preferences and personalizes the learning experience to each and every child.

This means that if your kids are into STEAM reading right now, they will be offered new books and collections within the category.

Personalized learning experience is a powerful way of encouraging children to dive deeper into their favorite subjects.

Multi-skill training

Epic! is essentially a reading tool. But it also come with a set of many cool features like built-in Webster’s kids vocabulary and read-to-me books. All of this helps children strengthen not only their reading skills but also their vocabulary and pronunciation.

Gamification

As a parent of two and an elementary school teacher, I know firsthand how important it is to keep kids engaged to continue learning despite all distractions.

Motivation is key in this context.

Epic! does a great job at motivating kids with fun badges and awards. And the cool part is that these incentives become less frequent as children dive deeper into learning process. It allows the love of reading to be key.

100% Free for teachers

Last but not least, all of these comes at zero cost for educators and schools!

To be honest, the amount of resources available on Epic! is worth a lot more than the monthly subscription rate. And giving access to this library completely for FREE is extremely generous.

So no wonder that 87% of classrooms in the U.S. are already using Epic!

I bet you can’t wait to try it out!

All you have to do is sign up as a teacher, set up all your students with individual accounts and start learning.
