Targeted Technology Unlocks Literacy Skills for Struggling Readers

Literacy skills are foundational for success in school and in life. Students must be able to read texts critically and understand the message the author is trying to get across — and technology can help students develop their literacy skills in profound ways.

With this in mind, Samsung and Pearson have teamed up to create Literacy Lab, a powerful new literacy solution for schools that combines Samsung Chromebooks or Galaxy tablets with Pearson’s iLit software and teacher professional development to deliver a personalized learning experience for students.

“One of the great things about technology is that it allows us to customize the experience for students,” says Samsung’s Ted Brodheim. Because the solution can hone in on students’ precise needs, it can help fill the gaps in their literacy skills very quickly, allowing them to accelerate their progress. And as the system learns each student’s interests, it provides reading material that matches these interests, leading to stronger engagement.

Watch this video from the 2016 International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) conference to learn more about how Literacy Lab can help students learn material more quickly and enhance their reading comprehension skills.
