As a result of low quality education, ineffective pedagogy, and a lack of participation by families and communities in promoting reading skills, learning outcomes in India remain staggeringly low. Rote learning, the most common pedagogical approach, leads to failures in comprehension, letter/word recognition, and fluency.
Sesame Workshop India Trust, with support from All Children Reading, has introduced Play. Connect. Learn. in order to deliver low-cost, self-paced, adaptive mobile and web technology applications to encourage families and communities to promote early, basic and proficient reading skills in their mother tongues.
This project will reach out to 12,000 children and their parents.
