Reading In Motion Partners With CauseLabs To Boost Program’s Technology Capabilities So More Students Learn To Read
Partnership focused on using technology tools to increase sustainability and scalability of successful school-based literacy program
Denver, CO. – Sept. 8, 2014 – Reading In Motion and CauseLabs today announced their partnership to pursue new ways of sustainability through technology tools so more teachers and schools can use the music and drama literacy program to inspire students to read at their full potential and start them on the path for a lifetime of successful learning.
CauseLabs, which builds tools to impact people, and Reading In Motion, which partners with schools and school districts to get kindergarten and first-grade students reading at grade level or above through its engaging and innovative literacy model, are working together to transform the program’s visuals into live tools that bolster program efficiency and usability. The new tools build upon the visual concepts and designs of Greater Good Studio.
“Reading in Motion has been wildly successful in their partner schools and technology is one tool to help scale the program so more children have an opportunity to benefit,” said T.J. Cook, CauseLabs CEO. “We build tools to impact people, and in this case, are focused on creating a joyful experience for teachers and program coaches who use the platform.”
“In CauseLabs, we’ve found a partner in our arts-based literacy mission, not just a technology vendor,” said Karl Androes, executive director, Reading In Motion. “The CauseLabs team continues to bring passion and new ideas that demonstrate a commitment to our program’s usability.”
