iLearn4Free is developing M4Read, which is a mobile learning application that can be adapted to different languages. Our scientific, research-based reading materials and activities are modeled after the “Big Five” focus areas recommended by the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development: phonemic awareness, systematic phonics, vocabulary, fluency, and comprehension.
Children are challenged to learn sounds and recognize new words as they play interactive games. M4read contains four key components: Learn, Reward, Stories and Results. The educational structure is comprised of 30 to 35 units, depending on the language, with each unit focusing on a specific phonemic skill. Each unit consists of a sound introduction, three games and a story. The games include word completion, word sorting, word matching, sound matching, memory tests and more. In each game, the user will win a point for each correct answer made. A certain number of points is required to move on to the next unit, and the points can be spent on fun reward activities that act as motivators.
