Utopic’s project offers a library of resources that includes mini VR games that assess reading skills. About 20% of students in OECD countries do not attain the baseline level of proficiency in reading and according to the UN, one in four young people in developing countries are unable to read. In this context, it is very important to motivate and engage children and to understand their proficiency in reading.
Utopic is creating VR games that have been specifically tailored to increase children's motivation while assessing their reading skills in a non-traditional, more sociocultural way of approaching to testing. To do so, their platform tracks the students’ activities and then measure the results that will in turn enable teachers, parents or students to understand children’s reading skills.
In 2020, Utopic Studio received cryptocurrency funding (125 ETH) from the UNICEF CryptoFund. Find out more here.
