Pearson India has launched “MyPedia Reader Storybook” which comprises of 42 stories written by the winners of MyPedia Reader Creative-writing Contest 2017.
“Imagination and creativity is a crucial educational objective to adequately equip the next generation for their future. Children are powerhouse of talent. Each one of them has different skill and if nurtured properly, they can certainly grow up to do wonders in their respective fields,” said Pearson India’s Vice President Ujjwal Singh while speaking at the launch.
Pearson received over 1500 stories from young authors of the country for the contest. The youngest author whose story got published is of eight years and a student of class four. Award-winning author of children’s literature in English – Santhini Govindan, children’s writer – Arundhati Venkatesh and quintessential story teller for children – Indira Ananthakrishnan, were the jury members of the contest.
“We, at Pearson, love stories, and have designed MyPedia Reader which is an endeavour to share these stories with the world. While each story we received was beautifully crafted, but the ones that made it to the book brings a fresh new perspective”, Singh added.
My Pedia is one of the digital learning programme run by Pearson India that promises measurable improvement in children’s’ learning and enhancing their English language skills.
“With MyPedia Reader we wanted to create a fertile ‘children-learning- from-children’ atmosphere that encourages and nourishes the innate imagination and creativity of children. We provided a platform to children to share their stories and ended up with a path-breaking learning solution for reading and writing of English language,” he added.
