Lalilo is a French-American edTech startup developing a web-based app for primary classrooms that differentiates reading instruction in English and in French using artificial intelligence. Children in grades kindergarten through 2nd work through self-paced and targeted exercises to develop and practice essential early literacy skills. Lalilo also aims to create a valuable tool for teachers in making their work more efficient and effective in the areas of data reporting, grouping students, and providing individualized extension exercises. The Lalilo team believes that the personalized technology experience can end illiteracy.
