The National Association of Headteachers (NAHT) recently published an article on the importance of reading, referencing the recent report, ‘The Power of Reading’:
The article highlights three key priorities:
- Early oral language development
- The systematic application of phonics
- Broadening the volume of reading whole books for pleasure
This is directly in line with what the iCanLearn Team are also promoting and exactly what iCanRead offers. We are pleased to be tackling the same big issues in education.
One of our recently published case studies focuses particularly on early years. The exclusive features of iCanRead directly promote early oral language, development of phonics, and certainly reading for pleasure, through our reward-based reading logs and book reviews.
This is great news for the iCL team and serves to galvanise the team as further confirmation of the importance of the work we are doing and what we are trying to achieve.
