Through the Looking Glass into the Secret Reading Lives of Students
We have a reading crisis in America. Despite one billion dollars spent each year on supplemental literacy products, 2/3 of American students are still below expected reading level by 4th grade. We don’t have a system to provide a clear view on what, when, and how often students are reading.
A recent Common Sense Media report found that children under 9 spend more than 2 hours a day on screens. What if we could use kid’s love for devices to generate a new view into the secret reading lives of students? Then turn that reading data into a Reading Fitness Tracker — motivating them to read more and engage in their own reading communities. In this seminar, Mim explores how technology offers new opportunities to engage with student reading and provide unique perspectives into reading activity.Event details and rsvp
