Through Enabling Writers, 496 local educators teaching in the early grades, children's book authors, representatives of Ministries of Education and professors in six different countries created 3,000 open-source, decodable and leveled digital books for early grade learners in 15 different languages (200 books for each language). Enabling Writers books are available through the Global Digital Library and the Bloom Library, among other sources.
On March 27, speakers from Nepal and Bangladesh will talk about their experiences and spotlight lessons learned and successful efforts.
Implemented by University Research Co.'s Reading within Reach project , Enabling Writers is the result of a prize competition conducted by All Children Reading: A Grand Challenge for Development to produce a book authoring software that can be used globally to develop decodable and leveled books for use in early grade reading programs. The competition was supported by the ACR:GCD partners-the United States Agency for International Development , World Vision and the Australian government-and resulted in the adaptation of Bloom book creation software.
