The world is experiencing an education crisis. Even before the onset of the COViD-19 pandemic, 100 million young children did not attend school, and another 250 million go to school but fail to learn to read. Learning to read is a fundamental human right and we are in a unique time in history where technology provides the means to deliver this to the next generation.
Curious Learning reaches children with open-source applications designed for self-learning. The apps are delivered via parent smartphones, provide continuous learning, and are available on Google Play for free. The apps promote mastery in foundational reading skills in home languages and provide practice in reading text and learning new vocabulary.

Curious Learning began as research to see if kids learn from mobile devices. This project inspired many efforts, including the Global Learning XPrize. Our team leverages a decade of field experience to understand what works in learning technology. We cultivate skills in discoverable interfaces and localization pipelines. Our co-founders, Tinsley Galyean and Stephanie Gottwald, have twenty years of industry and academic experience in technology design, literacy, and education.
