tidbITs for teachers: BeeLine Reader


BeeLine Reader is a Chrome extension that provides eye-guiding color gradients to improve focus and reduce screen fatigue, which is important for students who are distance learning. It has been featured as a top reading tool by Common Sense Education, Digital Promise, Understood.org, and Google Education.

After installing it, type Alt-S to activate it.

BeeLine uses a color gradient to guide your eyes from the end of one line to the beginning of the next. This makes reading easier and faster because it allows readers to transition between lines quickly and effortlessly. Many people are able to read 20% or 30% faster with BeeLine, even on their first try.

BeeLine Reader is normally $1.99 but you can request free use during COVID-19 by emailing education@beelinereader.com.
