Sora, by OverDrive Education Review

What do we like about Sora?

The app gives teachers and students technical agency to promote a lifelong love of reading. Teachers can assess their students' development by using Sora.

What skills does it improve?

The app uses the Lexile reading score and supports all reading proficiency levels. This aids teachers in developing lesson plans that are specific to each student's level of ability.

What age is it appropriate for?

Sora is appropriate for all ages students, teachers and schools. It is an app that can be used for young people in schools, from pre-K to high school. And teachers can use it as part of their reading curriculum in a variety of subjects.

Is Sora free?

Sora is available for free to download on all Android and iOS devices.

Is Sora easy to use?

It is simple to use Sora. Although it's intended for younger users, even mature people can navigate it with ease. It's fantastic that the Sora books are separated according to their Lexile levels. This addition is quite helpful. Additionally, there is a preferences button that enables you to further filter all of the available options by your preferences.

How will students benefit?

The app allows students to read for free while borrowing ebooks and audiobooks from practically every genre. To access the large selection of books and reading materials that their school has made available to them, all students need to do is log into Sora using their school account.

The app contains materials from their classroom and school library. Additionally, students can borrow any reading materials they might require for their schoolwork. or the neighbourhood library in their village or town. Access to the municipality or city's public library is regularly added by schools.

Students can read easily thanks to Sora. Each student can now easily access any book they want to read with just one click thanks to the seamless transition they have made between the student and reading. There are numerous aspects of Sora that are quite advantageous to the reader. For me, Sora's dyslexic font setting is its standout feature. This demonstrates genuine understanding and thought for OverDrive. An excellent effort was made to include all students. Additionally, you can change the reading setting. As a result, you can alter the lighting, font size, and type of typeface.

What can Sora improve on?

Sora has nothing to improve on.

How much does Sora cost?

Sora is available free of cost. 

Final thoughts

Sora is a great app, in my opinion, as someone who values reading as one of the most fundamental life skills one can possess. It is fantastic for use in schools, by teachers, and by students. It might improve the lives of all students and inspire them to interact with books and form solid reading habits.
