MY ROLE

In 2014 Scholastic, historically a publishing company, decided to embrace the digital era and move all their educational content into the digital world.

I was hired to lead the transition of Read180, their leading program for students with learning disabilities and low proficiency in reading, into an iPad app that could be used both by teachers and students in the classroom environment.

Intro screen
The program is divided into 3 main sections, and in this screen students need to choose which path to select based on the stage they are at.

Reading selection
In the independent reading section students are free to select which topic they want to focus on, and for each of the topics, decide which reading to start. We added a rating system to help students make a more informed decision based on what other students preferred.

Reading preview 
Since students need to finish the reading they started before choosing another one, we added a description and a preview video for each of them in the selection area so that they could have more information on the reading before selecting it.
