LightSail is the adaptive digital reading and curriculum building platform that helps students, classes, schools, reading intervention programs and governments exceed their literacy goals. Using the Lexile® framework, students receive an objective measure of reading ability by which to measure their literacy growth.
As a literacy-centred platform, LightSail has the flexibility to also host published content in multiple languages. Educators and curriculum developers are empowered to import relevant texts, create assessments across subject areas, and align to relevant curriculum standards.
Our award-winning solution embeds in-text assessments that motivate students to increase the volume of their reading along with the difficulty of their chosen texts. LightSail teachers, program managers, M&E professionals, donor organisations and education ministries get real-time access to meaningful data about student reading progress, performance against curriculum standards and program impact.
LightSail students get access to personalised libraries filled with thousands of engaging, just-right texts to choose from, covering STEM, Social Sciences and Fiction.
