AEM Explorer


Update on the AEM Explorer, November 2020

After many years of guiding educators, students, and families through a process of finding helpful access features of digital text readers, the AEM Explorer has reached the end of its technological lifespan. Fortunately, the digital text readers that students commonly use today have access features built into them, enabling authentic explorations. In place of the AEM Explorer, Personalizing the Reading Experience provides contemporary recommendations for supporting learners in finding and using access features of common digital text readers.
