EnglishHelper Launches ReadToMe In Collaboration With Intel And AWS
Intel and AWS enable English skills program implementation in government schools
To remove barriers to improving English language skills in government schools across India, EnglishHelper (EH), a language learning technology company and social enterprise, created ReadToMe®, an AI software that facilitates multi-sensory reading and comprehension. Intel, in collaboration with Amazon Web Services (AWS), enabled EH to effectively scale this solution to supporting the students of more than 25,000 digitally equipped schools in multiple states, expecting to grow to beyond 100,000 schools in 2021-22.
“Technology is transforming education, changing how students learn and empowering them at every stage of their journey. The ability to read, write, and speak English can open a multitude of opportunities for children. Intel architecture and AWS cloud enabled scalable computing capacity while keeping costs low and delivering advanced features that enhance the learning experience under EH’s RightToRead program. Together with EH and Schoolnet, we are working to expand this collaboration to other states in India to elevate learning outcomes across the country,” says Akanksha Bilani, Regional Alliance Head – Asia Pacific & Japan at Intel.
ReadToMe® has been implemented for students from grades 1 through 12 under EH and Schoolnet’s RightToRead program. Independent evaluations have found that students undertaking ReadToMe®-enabled classes showed 20–40 per cent higher improvement in reading and comprehension. The program also includes the implementation of a learning solution called EnglishBolo™ to equip teachers with improved proficiency and familiarity with ReadToMe® through a blend of self-learning and live tutoring sessions.
Utilizing Intel architecture and AWS technology, EH can now achieve uninterrupted scalability and implement its solutions in more than 100,000 schools across India. This solution will effectively help EH make a lasting impact on the lives of over 20M students and 500,000 teachers, enabling them with improved learning abilities and promoting continual growth and progress.
