Today, Google unveiled a free reading app called Rivet.
It has 2,000 free e-books, and tons of features, including reading the words aloud and having students record what they hear – with artificial intelligence then assessing its accuracy.
Teachers can create virtual classrooms and, I assume, monitor student progress (the ability to view student reading histories is not appear to be explicitly spelled out in the teacher’s guide, but I assume that’s the case).
The app can be downloaded on Android and IOS devices, and on Chromebooks. It’s unfortunate, however, that it can’t be accessed on the web without the app.
I’ve also embedded a video about the app below.
I’m adding this info to:
