LightSail strives to "turn students into readers." Through the integration of this adaptive literacy solution in the balanced literacy curriculum, students across all grades increase their reading level, reading time, and comprehension skills. In July of 2017 Lauren Bochicchio Beaver visited the EdLab to offer a demo of the application and share how LightSail fits into current reading programs.

Excerpts from the discussion
@00:34 ryanmallen555: It's great to hear about an organization that has so many former educators! I feel that perspective can bring a lot of advantages to any company working in education.
@13:54 Cinthia.Fabian It seems important to me to be able to read beyond what your content interests are or what your reading level has been determined to be. LightSail attempts to strike a balance in this respect.
@37:48 Brian.Sweeting I appreciate that the annotations feed into writing activities, it promotes better reading/note-taking habits.
