Paradigm Inertia In Reading Science and Policy – Part 1: Children of the Code

The “Children of the Code” project conducted over one hundred in-depth interviews with leading scientists and scholars whose expertise contributed to our prevailing understanding of the “the code and the challenges involved in learning to read it”.

Interactive Orthography

Imagine how different everything about literacy learning (and teaching) would be if the orthography was itself able to interactively guide and support learners through learning to recognize and understand any unfamiliar word they encounter. Interactive Orthography
