Investing in technology to improve learning: Sign On for Literacy Competition
Private Sector Engagement to Ensure Sustainability
Sign On for Literacy is a venture capital style grant competition, serving as a platform to mobilize financing and convene diverse partners to identify, test or scale science and technology development solutions to improve literacy. The competition is led by the All Children Reading Grand Challenge for Development, in collaboration with the World Federation of the Deaf, the Nyle DiMarco Foundation, and Deaf Child Worldwide.
This competition seeks to identify and support technology-based solutions to improve literacy and learning outcomes for deaf children in low-resource settings. Innovations aim to provide greater access to local sign languages, early grade reading materials, and/or reading instruction by engaging families, schools, and communities.
