Impact of the Kindle Classroom Project

The impact of the Kindle Classroom Project is clear and simple: Students read more and like reading more. On average, students double the number of books they read in a year. They also identify more strongly as readers and report that reading is much more enjoyable.

  • Since the KCP's inception, generous supporters have donated 2,818 Kindles and 2,636 e-books to the Kindle Classroom Project! More than 1,000 people from around the world have donated their used Kindles.
  • The KCP has served 3,829 students in 122 classrooms at all levels, including elementary, middle, and high schools.
