Renaissance Power Sessions – CPD

These Power Sessions are designed to advance your implementation and usage by focusing on fundamental aspects of Renaissance literacy products – Star Reading, Accelerated Reader & myON – to increase knowledge and use throughout your school.
We hope to open your eyes to what is possible with our products, and whether you are just starting out, have been using them for years, or are somewhere in between, you should find a session here with content that is new to you and will have an impact on increasing literacy levels within your school.

We have a group of Featured power sessions that are running live every week that you can book onto, with additional access to over 20 On-Demand power sessions to all other available sessions that you can simply download and watch.

Below the list of on-demand sessions, you will also find links to our live Getting Started sessions as well which take place multiple times every week. These sessions are fantastic as a comprehensive overview of Star Reading, Accelerated Reader & myON for new staff or as a refresher session to reorientate yourself, simply book onto the time that best suits you.
