The PM eCollection is a brand new platform that re-imagines guided and independent reading for the digital age.


Important notice regarding iOS10


The PM eCollection comprises three pillars:

The Content -

we've taken the proven strength of our
pedagogically sound, carefully levelled PM eCollection
and digitised them for use on ipads. The 200 titles in the
first release of PM eCollection are from PM levels 1 to 24

The eReader app -

we've designed an eReader
specifically for guided and independent reading. The
features of our eReader support students using PM
eBooks to learn to read.

The website -

we've created a sophisticated website for
teachers and administrators to easily manage students'
guided and independent reading experiences.


THE CONTENT

Each PM eCollection eBook is completely redesigned for
iPad compatibility, though retains the same pedagogical
underpinnings as the original PM Collection.

Purpose-built features to enhance students' experience
with the PM eBooks include:

  • audio support - students tap to hear a word, swipe
    down to hear a page

  • My Words - students touch and swipe a word to add it
    to their My Words list

  • ability for students to record their own version of the
    PM eBook

  • edit text function

  • draw and add notes to PM eBooks.

THE eREADER APP

The PM eCollection eReader app allows students and
teachers to choose a reading profile based on the needs of
learners in specific situations.

  • The Guided Reading profile disables the audio
    record functionality so that distractions are minimised.

  • The Independent Reading profile enables the audio and
    record functionality. offering full support for students
    reading on their own.

  • The Custom Reading profile allows the user to enable or
    disable My Words and audio functionality, and
    show/hide the text to create opportunities for retelling
    and other oral literacy activities.

The intuitive controls and navigation are perfectly suited to
today's digital learners. The gestures used for choosing and
reading eBooks in the PM eCollection are already well
known by today's students.
