Creating Reading Challenges that Build a Culture of Reading

We know how important it is to you to help your students develop a genuine love of books. But how exactly do you do that? In this free webcast, we get expert advice from Felix Brandon Lloyd, co-founder of Beanstack, on strategies school librarians can use to foster a culture of reading at their schools. Felix is an experienced educator and entrepreneur who co-founded Zoobean. A former Washington, DC Teacher of the Year, he previously founded the company Skill-Life, Inc., which created the online financial education game Money Island. He and his wife Jordan appeared on Shark Tank in 2013 and gained an investment in Zoobean from Mark Cuban. Beanstack by Zoobean helps educators and librarians create, manage, and measure reading challenges. Using a website customized to each school or library and an easy-to-use mobile app, Beanstack makes it easier to track reading, keep readers motivated, and gain actionable insights.
