[br][br]On Wednesday, Google India launched a tutoring mobile app ‘Bolo’ to help young children read and practise their literacy skills.[br][br]The internet giant said it created Bolo app to forward its philanthropic efforts.[br][br]“We believe technology has the power to help transform teaching and learning; hence, we have been actively directing our products, programmes and philanthropy to ensure that all students are able to benefit from it,” said the company’s Product Manager Nitin Kashyap and Bolo’s Engineering Lead Zohair Hyder.[br][br]How does Bolo app work?[br][br]Google India said the app is designed for primary grade students.[br][br]It contains speech-recognition technology, text-to-speed features, and an in-app reading buddy, ‘Diya’. [br][br]Diya, an animated character, explains, corrects, and encourages the child as s/he reads aloud. She can also define unknown words and help to increase the child’s vocabulary, besides explaining English words in Hindi.[br][br]“Like a personalised reading tutor, the app assists them at every step, giving positive and corrective feedback,” says Google India.[br][br]The objective of Bolo app is to help children learn how to read by themselves. It provides them with a variety of free reading material sourced from Storyweaver, available in Hindi and English.[br][br]The company said Bolo will be available in other languages over time.[br][br]The reading difficulty of these stories increases over time, allowing the children to ease into tougher literature at a comfortable pace.[br][br]Google India explains that children can test their ability by playing word games and earning rewards and badges.[br][br]Multiple children can use Bolo app and track their progress individually. The app also works offline and is ad-free.[br][br]Tackling child illiteracy in India[br][br]Google India said it has been piloting Bolo in 200 villages in Uttar Pradesh over the past few months.[br][br]“Early results are very encouraging; we found that 64% of children showed an improvement in reading proficiency in just three months,” said the tech company.[br][br]For the next six months, Google India will be working with four non-profits—Pratham Education Foundation, Room to Read, Saajha, and Kaivalya Education Foundation—to expand their efforts in child literacy.[br][br]“Working together with parents, teachers, and the broader education ecosystem, we hope Bolo will contribute in shaping the future of India’s young learners and readers,” said Google India.[br][br]
