MyON Reading: Introduction

A personalised digital library at every student’s fingertips

'Renaissance myON Reader' is a student-centred, personalised literacy tool that gives students access to more than 6,000 enhanced digital books. Titles are dynamically matched to each individual student’s interests, reading level and preferences. Combined with a collection of close reading tools and embedded support systems myON Reader fosters student engagement and achievement across all subjects and promotes a lasting love of reading. 

At Hodge Hill College, every student has now been given a log in for the free to use myON website and we strongly encourage all students to take advantage of this and to use it as part of their natural learning routine and as part of their study at home and in school.

MyON reading software provides us as teachers and you as parents with the ability to monitor your child’s reading progress and promotes a high standard of basic literacy skills; a vital tool for both academic progress and a valuable life-skill for life beyond education in future employment.

After your child has logged on and created their profile, they will have the opportunity to specify their reading interests, which will promote greater enjoyment of reading on a much wider scale than ever before. No more boring books about topics that they don’t enjoy reading about! But best of all, due to reading age data that we collect on all pupils at the school, the programme specifically offers up options from a choice of thousands of texts that are aimed at your child’s level of reading ability. Long story short, it offers the right books to the right pupils. Through reading texts pitched at the correct level, students will progress at a faster rate and this will inevitably be beneficial to student comprehension across all subjects. 

Below, we have provided access to a range of helpful documents including a myON ‘how to guide’, a ‘parent guide’ and a detailed tutorial session within which a member of the myON team discusses the benefits of the software itself. Please take a look at these initially if you are experiencing any difficulty, but one of the main benefits of the software itself is its ease of access to users.

We hope that you as students and parents enjoy this software and use it to its fullest potential. At Hodge Hill College, we are excited to offer this to our entire school community as we aim to provide every student with better opportunities and better futures. 

If you require any additional support with your use of myON Reading, please do not hesitate to contact the school at myon@hodgehill.bham.sch.uk and we will aim to resolve your queries as quickly as possible.
