Curious Learning's results are described alongside the global learning X-Prize, which our research helped to inspire.
Project to provide children with tablets loaded with literacy apps reports encouraging results in Africa, U.S.
A Georgia State Scientist and his protege are part of a team that puts pre-programmed tablets into the hands of children in remote international villages and in the rural south. Amazingly, the outcomes are the same. With little to no instruction, they're teaching themselves to read.
Our researchers from MIT, Tufts and Georgia State University bring tablets to Roanoke, Alabama to see if our successes in Africa and India – increasing emerging literacy through child-driven learning – might be duplicated in a rural American school.
