Who are they?
Lalilo is a virtual assistant which helps educators teach primary school students how to read.
The startup was launched in 2016 by 3 engineers from École Polytechnique, with the goal of ending illiteracy with AI. In France 20% of the students who graduate from elementary school (collège) can’t read proficiently enough to keep up with the academic demands of the classroom. In the U.S, that number goes up to 30%.
By providing individualised learning to students they want to drive that number down to 0.
To reach this goal, they have brought together experts in pedagogy, teachers, designers and technologists who work hand in hand to build the best classroom tools for students and educators.
Lalilo joined Renaissance Learning in 2021 to accelerate its development and reach more and more students throughout the world.
