Story Shares Pilot Studies
We are piloting the Story Shares platform in schools and programs across the country. The Story Shares pilot studies enable us to gather feedback on our literacy solution, which will inform future development and help us to continue evolving Story Shares in a way that meets the needs of readers, educators, and schools. We are very grateful to our pilot partners for their input and insights.
If your school might be interested in becoming a pilot partner, please reach out to us! If you are already using Story Shares in your school or classroom, and have any feedback to share, we would always love to hear from you.
