ReadyRosie is an early education tool that is currently helping schools and communities across the nation deepen and scale their parent engagement efforts by leveraging the power of video modeling and mobile technology to meet and equip parents where they are. ReadyRosie has hundreds of brief videos in English and Spanish that model everyday interactions in familiar environments with real parents.
The two missions with ReadyRosie are to improve Kindergarten Readiness and Literacy by Grade 3. ReadyRosie leverages the power of video modeling to have parents and caregivers effectively interact with children from Birth to Grade 3. Each video is 1-2 minutes in length, focuses on an early literacy or math standard, and models real families interacting together. Research through Penn State confirms significant increases in the vocabulary exchanged and surprising behavioral improvements as well.
