Bookshare Creates Opportunities For Gifted Students

Beneblog: Technology Meets Society

As part of my holiday greetings this year, I would like to introduce you to two young people who have used Benetech’s Bookshare library to reach academic excellence and find the books that keep them engaged in their off hours. Two years ago, Steffon worked with us to a Bookshare how-to video and a video profile which also features his teacher Jill Dunaway who helped him become a Bookshare member. You can read our full profile of Steffon here.

Virginia DeBolt pointed me to this very inspiring story about a third grader in Albuquerque who raised $6000 to build a library in Ethiopia. The organizations listed are profiled by other young people. When I was a kid, Lucy the Elephant , was in a state of disrepair. A community group worked hard to get her placed on the historic register and raise money to restore her to her mid-century glory.
