Impact of Digital Reading: Study

Between 2015-2017, Worldreader, Results for Development (R4D) and Pearson’s Project Literacy partnered to develop and
implement a digital reading pilot called Read to Kids for parents of young children among under-resourced households in Delhi, India. The pilot project reached over 230,000 households, the majority of which had no children’s books.

57,000 individuals accessed at least one eBook, and 7,000 households reported changing their reading habits to read more frequently. The study found that a combination of in-person and digital reading works best at normalizing digital reading in children, and the cost of the project was very low per household. The full report is here.
