After months of painstaking research and digital reading platform comparisons, it became clear that LightSail is THE solution to support our students in meeting their English literacy academic goals, and to instill a love for reading in them.
LightSail’s Literacy-in-a-Box empowers rural communities with low-to-no internet connectivity to use the same literacy tools that students in well connected cities benefit from. This creates an equitable opportunity for all learners to unlock their true potential through the development of literacy skills. Literacy-in-a-Box includes the entire LightSail platform with more than 200 features and 150 data points for educators to assess, review and monitor. Students can each access a library of 6,000 complimentary books. The platform can operate with zero Internet for months at a time in extreme conditions — from -5° Celsius to 60° Celsius. Our Literacy-in-a-Box can be deployed on any Linux low cost device that can be found for around $200. We are confident that Literacy-In-a-Box will contribute to raising literacy rates and positively impact lives in the developing world.
