At PowerUpEDU, we partner with educational institutions to amplify early literacy learning with the goal of helping every child grow as a reader.
America has a national reading crisis.
PowerUpEDU targets phonological awareness and phonemic development using augmented reality. Letters, sounds, words, and concepts of print come to life with advanced augmented reality technology and standards-based lessons that can be facilitated by any teacher.
Backed by data that supports the development of comprehension skills and metacognitive awareness, this instructional resource has a measurable impact on young readers. The literacy concepts are all taught within a science context, allowing students to build background knowledge while supporting literacy development.
