How LumiBook helps administrators

Less effort and time spent organizing professional development activity

LumiBook is more than just a book, a conference, or a PLC. It combines many professional learning activities into one experience, so instead of organizing multiple exercises for teachers, you only need to schedule one activity— time spent in a LumiBook.Expanded rich media.

Higher teacher engagement

With the ability to watch videos, converse with the author and fellow readers, listen to audio, and much more, LumiBook readers are far more engaged in professional learning than teachers who read only traditional texts.

Less money spent on professional development

Because authors can automatically update their LumiBooks with new material, readers can often get for free the content they would otherwise have to pay for in a second edition—potentially saving you thousands of dollars every year.

How LumiBook helps teachers

More to learn from your professional development

LumiBook is the most multifaceted PD resource available, with something for every type of learner, including audio, visual, textual, and user-generated content—maximizing learning for hundreds or even thousands of teachers at once.

A truly personalized professional development experience

Interactions in LumiBook can be customized to readers’ interests and needs, giving them the ability to engage with the content in the manner that suits them and to get answers to their own unique questions from other readers as well as the author.

More collaboration for more help and faster improvement

With thousands of readers collaborating in the pages of every LumiBook, your teachers won’t just be reading an ebook—they’ll be joining a deep PLC comprised of other teachers who can help them resolve issues and challenges and improve their practice.
