How to use
Those of you who have students in Year 8 and above will remember the audio book launch last year so this is just a reminder. For Year 7, this is something that we’ve mentioned in library lessons and many are keen to give it a go.
There are two ways of accessing the books, both through an app provided by “eWheelers”:
Simply click the icon below…
…or alternatively, download the app on a phone or tablet. You start by downloading the app from whatever app store you use; either Google Playstore for android but if you have an iPhone then it will be Apple Store. The app is called “ePlatform by Wheelers”.
Once downloaded, your child is prompted to search for school. They need to look for “The Ridgeway School and Sixth Form College”. There will be a prompt to log in with their school sign in (the first part of their email address without the “@ridgewayschool.com” suffix) and password either at that point or when they’ve selected a book to listen to.
Many set text are included and the company we are using constantly monitor the selection and will modify them taking into account both by analysing the borrowing history and requests that students can make through the site.
