Capstone and Amira Learning Announce Strategic Partnership to Ensure Literacy Growth for All Students

April 10, 2024

MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. – April 10, 2024 – Amira Learning, the first provider of an AI reading tutor, and Capstone, an innovative learning company merging children’s content with easy-to-use edtech tools for K-5 classrooms, libraries, and homes, announce their strategic partnership aimed at ensuring all students receive meaningful reading practice with the Science of Reading interventions they need and the quality content they crave.

This collaboration brings together Amira Learning's cutting-edge AI technology with Capstone’s extensive collection of engaging and educational content to provide students with an incredible and unique literacy solution. By combining the power of personalized, data-driven instruction with dynamic reading materials, the partnership can ensure students are able to grow in fluency and comprehension because every child deserves the chance to become a reader.

Amira Learning's flagship product, the AI reading tutor was developed by a cadre of leading literacy experts and scientists based on 30 years of research. Through AI, the program analyzes each individual student's reading abilities in real time and provides personalized interventions based in the Science of Reading. Amira also helps educators tailor instruction and intervention so teachers can target skills and close reading gaps. Students reading with Amira experience twice the growth of their peers using other reading programs.

Capstone offers an extensive collection of children’s fiction and nonfiction books, interactive eBooks, and digital resources designed to inspire curiosity and foster a lifelong love of reading. Through this partnership, Capstone StoryPacks, curated collections of standards-aligned content, are integrated into the Amira reading tutor. Amira then recommends engaging fiction and nonfiction stories to students based on their individual skill gaps, providing educators with immediate data to help guide direct instruction.

“We are thrilled to partner with Capstone to empower educators and students with the tools they need to succeed in literacy,” said Mark Angel, CEO of Amira Learning. “By combining our expertise in AI-driven instruction with Capstone’s exceptional content, we can create a truly transformative learning experience that meets the needs of today’s diverse classrooms.”

“Our partnership with Amira Learning allows us to deliver our engaging content to provide personalized literacy instruction and support to students around the world and reflects our continued focus on helping every reader succeed.
