LeVar Burton and the Reading Rainbow team have launched a new Kickstarter to fund a new Digital Reading Rainbow that will be available to any kid with an internet connection. A school version will also be available, and it will be free to any in-need school.

As someone who benefited a lot from educational shows like Reading Rainbow and Wishbone, I think this is wonderful. It looks super useful in a teaching setting, as well as something that would do great in libraries. I'm also really pleased to see that there is a focus on helping schools that need the help (and so often get ignored by education departments).

I'll totally be sending some money their way.
