Multi-Sensory Technology to Change the Way Millions Learn English
Over the last decade, surveys conducted across government schools in India have highlighted a significant gap in the reading and comprehension ability of students. In 2013, EnglishHelper launched an initiative RightToRead, with the objective of improving reading and comprehension skills of students in government schools using technology. By 2016, RightToRead had expanded to reach in excess of one million students across five thousand schools to learn English.
Under the RightToRead program, improvement in English reading and comprehension was observed across multiple grade levels. Can technology-enabled reading solve India’s reading challenge quickly and at scale?
