I think this is a very worthwhile effort and one that I can support personally as a professor and as president of The International Education Institute. We began experimenting with early learning strategies about 15 years ago. Some of our early work can be seen on our somewhat outdated websites at http://ReadToSucceed.com and http://GuaranteedToRead.com . I also worked with the Children's Reading Foundation for 2 years and the Washington State Migrant/Bilingual Education Program for 7 years, and have gained valuable insights from these projects, as well. At KIMEP University in Kazakhstan I was the Distance Learning Coordinator and founder/developer of their program. I have built such experimental education websites as http://Virtual-University.us and http://IEI-TV.net, and I am involved with the http://Lingulus.com project to provide language training eventually in over 500 languages (about to launch with about 100 languages). There could be some synergy between these two projects, and Lingulus has a team of world-class programmers working on their project. I support this project in concept but look forward to assisting in more meaningful ways. Kenneth E. Harvey, PhD (CV, contact information, and work samples at http://Virtual-Institute.us/Ken)
