iRead is a 4-year (2017-2020) project that aims to develop personalised learning technologies to support reading skills. This software combines a diverse set of personalised learning applications and teaching tools for formative assessment. We focus on primary school children across Europe, learning to read and learning english as a foreign language including children with dyslexia who are at risk of exclusion from their education. The project is funded by the EU H2020 and comprises 17 partners from across industry and education in 9 European countries. Our work is organised into three strands: innovation, design and evaluation, with different expected outcomes and stakeholders.
