Adeiso Primary and their e-readers

Since Worldreader launched the iRead pilot in November, we’re seeing astonishing improvements in primary students’ reading comprehension– their sub-scores improved an average of 13% in just 6 months!

This week the primary students at Adeiso, Ghana wrote poems and rhymes which show how having e-readers and, importantly, reading a lot (they are spending up to 50% more of their time reading) is changing the way they express themselves.  A special thanks to Writers Project Ghana– they asked the students to test their writing skills after a reading workshop.  Here are a few of them for you to enjoy.
