about the innovation

Creating readers and writers in Latin America

What we do?

We create opportunities for active engagement in reading and writing, in Spanish.  Seven students and a teacher produce this podcast as a space to talk about language and literature, in a way that is both significative and fun.  

Why we do it?

In Latin America, according to PISA, 50% of all 15 year-olds can't understand simple texts. We believe that our education systems have done a fair job in teaching our children to read and write, but a lousy job in creating readers and writers. We want to change this narrative by creating engaging opportunities to love reading and writing, free for everyone to use.
