UC-N-LEARN and Region 4 Announce Ed Tech Partnership for Texas Schools
The partnership will provide more effective intervention curriculum for students with dyslexia.
UC-N-LEARN, an education technology venture, is partnering with Region 4, an education service center in Texas, responsible for improving efficiencies and student performance. UC-N-LEARN’s platform will digitize Region 4’s Reading by Design curriculum providing teachers with real time tracking of student’s progress.
Region 4 serves a seven-county area comprising 47 public school districts and 40 open-enrollment charter schools, representing more than 1.2 million students, 105,000 educators, and 1,500 campuses. Reading by Design is a reading intervention curriculum created for students who are having difficulty with reading.
UC-N-LEARN was founded by Amir Bar, who has dyslexia and wanted to develop a tool to help teachers leverage data and technology to identify the unique learning needs for each individual student. UC-N-LEARN is a member of the innovation lab (iLab) at Harvard University. Recently, it was selected to receive a grant as part of the Harvard Social Impact Fellowship Fund.
“Our technology enables teachers to find the optimal practice to tailor the intervention for each student’s unique learning needs,” said Amir Bar. “We are grateful for Region 4’s leadership at reading intervention and their determination to be at the forefront of education technology.”
