What is ReadyRosie?

ReadyRosie is an early education tool that is currently helping schools and communities across the nation deepen and scale their parent engagement efforts by leveraging the power of video modeling and mobile technology to meet and equip parents where they are. ReadyRosie has hundreds of brief videos in English and Spanish that model everyday interactions in familiar environments with real parents.

Readyrosie equips and inspires families with children from birth through 3rd grade.

How it Works

1

Deliver.


Parents and caregivers receive daily texts, emails, or app notifications in English and Spanish.

2

Demonstrate.


Everyday activities are modeled in brief videos by real families.

Student Achievement

Research

In an evaluation study done by Penn State Researchers, families were videotaped interacting with their child “as they normally would." The families were individually recorded before and after a three-week exposure to ReadyRosie. Researchers analyzed the change in both the quality and quantity of language, using the following variables and seeing the following results:

80%
increase

Total Number of Words

40%
increase

Total Number and Complexity of Utterances (sentences)

25%
increase

Total Number of Open-Ended Questions

60%
increase

Total Number of Child Responses

10%
decrease

Total Number of Commands/Directives, like "no" and "put that down."

This study is ongoing and will have final analysis and results in 2016.
