The OverDrive Education team is traveling to 9 states (including 1 in Canada) on our K-12 Fall Tour! We enjoyed meeting many of you, our school partners, in person. We had over 250 teachers, librarians, curriculum coordinators, technology specialists, and others take part. They left with tools to make the most of OverDrive in the school community and classroom.

We have begun our Spring Tour! See if we’re coming to your city and register on our events page and connect with other attendees on our Facebook events page.

OverDrive is for everyone in your school community

At each session of the OverDrive Education K-12 Tour, our goal is to ensure that every person leaves with a call to action. Attendees will learn how to increase usage and awareness of digital content in their school community. We cover topics from the benefits and features of our browser-based readers, OverDrive Read and OverDrive Listen, to using digital content in the classroom. Attendees learn new tips and tricks for Marketplace, as well as how to access valuable marketing and training resources in the Resource Center.
One of the best aspects of the workshop format of the session is the chance for all of you to interact with each other and our team. Each group will have discussions on a variety of topics, from how to get more students involved in digital content creation, to using OverDrive to assign class sets. We’ll hear from OverDrive veterans and newbies and our team expects to gain valuable feedback, insight, and questions to help grow the future of OverDrive Education.
