Welcome to join this meeting of experts from multiple disciplines (including cognitive science, neuroscience, education, computer science, policy, and education technology [EdTech])  to make progress on developing evidence-based technology-aided tools to support at-risk children across languages and cultures at three critical stages: 1] preschool oral language/vocabulary and numeracy; 2] reading acquisition; and 3] reading comprehension support (with consideration of links to STEM). Additional focus on opportunities and challenges in and around adult literacy and second language literacy will also be considered.
