World Read Aloud Day + Tackk


World Read Aloud Day motivates children, teens, and adults worldwide to celebrate the power of words and creates a community of readers taking action to show the world that the right to literacy belongs to all people. World Read Aloud Day is now celebrated by over one million people in more than 80 countries and reaches over 31 million people online.

On March 4, World Read Aloud Day calls global attention to the importance of reading aloud and sharing stories.

Tackk is excited to help support #wrad and the amazing educators and students participating around the world. As big supporters of Global Read Aloud focusing on a lot of the same concepts, we couldn't be happier to provide our free tool as a resource during the program.

Here are a few ways to use Tackk before, during and after #wrad:

1. Collaboration

We recently launched Tackk Stream, an easy and fun way to have a conversation. Streams live at the bottom of your Tackks and allow students and teachers to interact with each other by posting comments, photos, video and more.

Connect with classes around the world and collaborate using Tackk Stream.

2. Creation

Tackk provides a way for students to capture thoughts, research, ideas and stories. Ask them to discuss plot details, character development, ideas about what will happen next in a blog post. Let them choose from headlines, text, photos and video to get creative.

As a teacher, use Tackk to guide your ideas and lessons around the book. Show off what book you're reading, how your students are responding, then send as a newsletter to parents and school faculty.

3. Documentation & sharing

Show the world what you and your class did during #wrad. Create photo galleries, add Vines and Instagram videos and other visual media to capture reactions and feelings. Continue to use Tackk after #wrad to assign projects and have conversations about the book.
