Democratizing early literacy through innovation

In the wake of the pandemic, it’s estimated that nearly a third of children in early grades — disproportionately children in under-resourced communities — are missing early reading benchmarks. Meaningful advancements in AI and learning science are enabling the development of solutions that more deeply support students, in class and at home. So what are the opportunities and risks? Join us for a discussion on what it will take to bridge troubling literacy gaps across the globe.
