mLearning Resource Hub

Welcome to the mLearning resource hub and community of practice (CoP).

Mobile Learning (mLearning) means learning anytime and anywhere. For adult learners, mLearning can give access to language learning, literacy development, and skill building – using a mode of instruction that best fits within the demands of their busy lives and using the devices they are most likely to have. This website is a hub for connecting to guidance and resources for initiating or enhancing mobile learning programming for adults with English language, literacy, and other basic skill development needs.

Move Forward with Mobile Learning was the tagline of Team WorldEd for the Adult Literacy XPRIZE Communities Competition, which ended in August 2019. Team WorldEd, a diverse, virtual community of adult education providers, was named the Tier 1 Achievement Winner in the Barbara Bush Adult Literacy XPRIZE Communities Competition presented by Dollar General Literacy Foundation for its innovative and award-winning strategies to empower adults with low literacy skills to use four free mobile learning tools that were free during the competition: Cell-Ed, Learning Upgrade, Amrita Learning, and Codex: Lost Words of Atlantis.

The mLearning Leadership Team

The mLearning Leadership Team is made up of education leaders who care deeply about increasing access to educational opportunities for adult basic skills and literacy learners. This innovative group of adult education practitioners and leaders agree that the way to reach more learners is to build innovative mLearning opportunities in their programs. The Leadership Team regularly meets to share effective practice known in their professional networks – and then contributes those resources to this CoP.
