Tablet-based reading game and online learning community for young students to learn better reading comprehension.

Text Detective, a project of The Environmental Charter School in partnership with the Western PA Writing Project and Little Bird Games, is a tablet-based reading game and online learning community that supports students in grades 4-7 in improving their reading comprehension in science, social studies and literature. Text Detective is designed for children to teach each other how to read and understand texts through pre-built and player-created puzzles, but also serves as a tool for teacher inquiry, allowing them to reflect on collaborative teaching experiences and the use of digital learning tools.
