Virtual service 'Ignite Reading' teaches skills to Little Rock kids

A virtual, one-to-one, 15-minute-a-day tutoring program in elementary and middle school reading is getting a tryout in a dozen Little Rock School District schools this semester. Because of “Ignite! Reading,” about 1,000 pupils throughout Arkansas’ capital city don blue headsets with microphones, open their child-size laptops and interact with their individually assigned tutors such as Ms. Bridget who is located in distant New Jersey. “Puh, puh, pin,” one child in Madison Camp’s first grade classroom at Western Hills Elementary puffs into the headset mic to the delight of her tutor, who is visible in one corner of the screen that is mostly filled with a grid of three-letter words.
