Quick Tip-A Truly "EPIC" Resource

What? Another blogpost so soon? Yes, y’all! While exploring the wide world of Pinterest tonight (and trying unsuccessfully to learn how to use it from a business standpoint), I came across something unbelievably fantastic! It was a sponsored pin from a company called Epic. Apparently it is “like Netflix for books.” That was the tagline, anyway. As I am still trying to figure it out, I can’t say whether that is true, but get this: IT IS FREE FOR EDUCATORS!!! From what I can tell so far, there is a huge selection of great books.

You can find this amazing resource at www.getepic.com. It can be used on computers, tablets, and smartphones. All I needed was my school email to join. Once I created my account, I was able to browse by age and subject. Some of the books have a “read to me” option as well. Another useful feature is the option to create reader profiles for your students. They can complete various challenges to earn badges. It seems to work a little better on my iPhone than my laptop, and I haven’t had a chance to check the iPad version. Like I said before, I’m still learning about it, but I thought you all should have that opportunity too. Let me know what you think! Happy Reading!
