Designed by teachers and influenced by students in K-12 schools, LightSail’s personalized platform ensures that every child is always reading books that are “just right” for them. Students choose books from the digital library, complete embedded assessments as they read, and engage in real-time dialogue with their teachers. LightSail serves hundreds of thousands of students in nearly 500 districts across the US, Latin America, Asia, Europe and Africa.
Impact on Illiteracy
LightSail is committed to using data to improve literacy rates of society’s most vulnerable. In 2016, a Johns Hopkins study found that students reading as little as 30 minutes a day on LightSail advanced at a rate 2.7x faster than expected. In other words, students reading on LightSail saw nearly three years of growth in a single year.
