Implementation Planning

Four levels of implementation

Adoption of a literacy environment such as myON happens on a continuum.  School districts and educational institutions across the nation must consider available resources and timing. To that end, myON suggests four levels of implementation. Each of these levels might be long or short-term goals or can evolve to the next level over time, depending on specific needs and objectives for your school/district or program.

Level 1 Independent Reading Level 2 Curriculum Connections Level 3 Actionable Data Level 4 Systemic Adoption

Levels of myON Implementation

Learners access books and regularly login. A love of reading is fostered, and programs such as independent reading, a virtual library, and personalized literacy are possible.

Faculty use myON for instruction to connect with standards and align with curriculum. Benchmarks are administered and the creation of book lists, writing tasks and checklists support literacy learning.

Faculty use myON analytics for data driven decision-making and action-based learning-research. System features are used to inform teaching and learning and improve student achievement on an ongoing basis.

The myON solution becomes an integral part of comprehensive district-wide and school-wide efforts. myON is part of daily instruction and embedded into multiple initiatives and programs.
