TEST Digital Resources

Hello Students, Families & Educators!

Are you ready to listen to some audiobooks? Got a favorite ebook or read-along you want to catch up on? Want to watch videos about sharks? Interested in exploring your favorite topics? Got a big research paper coming up? We’ve got just what you need!

Digital resources are excellent for reports, references and fun! They are an extension of the materials available at your school library and are purchased for your school by Heartland AEA. 

Now Access Our Digital Resources Through Heartland AEA OneClick!

Iowa’s AEAs are moving to a single sign-on approach to accessing digital resources. That means that the generic school username/password is no longer needed! Students and teachers can log in using their school email through a link called AEA OneClick. Why the change? AEA OneClick provides better privacy and security and adds more convenient access.

If your district is an AEA OneClick district, click the icon below to start exploring!

AEA Scout searches most of the digital resources at the same time and includes notetaking, translation, text-to-speech, persistent links, sharing and organizational features. Teachers can share folders of curated resources and link resources to a district’s LMS or a Google/Word doc and more! Check it out!
