Improving students' reading skills and understanding of local and world events through a digital reading platform.

Guten exists to democratize reading mastery among students, providing tools and learning pathways so they become critical and proactive readers. Guten is a digital reading platform that brings world and local news to students, with language adapted to their reading levels, contextualizing concepts learned at school. Together with each news article, students find games that foster reading skills and verify if they understood what they read. Additionally, teachers have access to online reports, dashboards and lesson plans that show how their students are evolving and which skills are needing improvement. Guten brings actionable data to teachers on a daily basis, so they can personalize reading instruction. Their current focus is Portuguese language speakers in 4th to 9th grade in Brazil. To date, 35,000 students across the country have used the reading platform, and Guten aims to reach 1.5 million students in the coming 3 years.
