Read what they are saying about our solutions

myON is a great tool for PYP. My project depended on being informed about the world and relationships between countries that I wouldn’t have known, had it not been for myON News. myON allowed me to choose what I wanted to read, instead of mandatory reading that only got rid of my will to read.

myON is a great complement for our students’ media literacy. Our school is a current applicant for the MYP program and myON was assessed as one of the relevant resources with a positive and transdisciplinary impact on the school curriculum. We use it to contextualize and develop our units. It helps foster love for reading as students can read according to their interests and the real-time reporting of performance allows students to take responsibility for their progress.
