Literacy and language arts

We study how educators can use technology to increase equity and accessibility of high-quality learning opportunities. SRI Education works to improve how students learn to read and write, particularly for early learners and students in special populations. Our researchers study and evaluate instruction; develop and validate literacy assessments; and support online learning. We have a strong focus on teacher development and supporting English learners, students with disabilities, and low-literacy adults.
