Move Forward with Mobile Learning!

An initiative by Team WorldEd 

Move Forward with Mobile Learning

 

Welcome to the Move Forward with Mobile Learning site! This site was developed to support 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: Cell-Ed, Learning Upgrade, Amrita Learning, and Codex: Lost Words of Atlantis. 

While the Adult Literacy XPRIZE competition has ended, our work to provide high-quality professional development and support the field in harnessing mobile learning in their work has not. On this site, you can explore and access resources and tools to support effective mobile learning integration in adult basic education contexts. 

 

COMING SOON! Our leadership team will leverage the momentum of the competition in support of a broader mobile learning initiative; one that will provide open education resources and professional development to educators, practitioners and others in the field through an inclusive community of practice. Join our community of practice to move forward with mobile learning! For more information, contact edtech@worlded.org

POSTCARDS FOR LEARNERS

Adults new to learning online might be overwhelmed by the range of learning content available to them in an app. Or, they do not understand what it is they might learn there. Creating a few print-based reference materials can help make learning content less abstract.
