Curious Learning creates software that lets children teach themselves to read. Our platform connects children with literacy content created by content partners, and uses machine learning and artificial intelligence to optimize learning outcomes. We reach children through deployment partners—schools, NGOs, companies, and governments–who can enhance their literacy education work by getting devices with our software to children. Today, we create US pre-K literacy outcomes for 100X lower cost and dramatically improve effectiveness of classroom instruction to level the playing field for kids starting school. In the future, we will identify and preventatively treat dyslexia, and allow people around the world to learn to read through our software that will come pre-installed on low-cost mobile phones.
