Access Free Mobile Learning Apps for ESOL and Literacy

 

Welcome to the Team WorldEd site for the Adult Literacy XPRIZE Communities Competition! On this site, you can access resources to learn more about the competition and tools to support you and your learners. 

This is an unprecedented opportunity to extend access to learning through four field-tested apps designed for low-literacy adults and ELLs. The four apps achieved the highest learning gains for these adults in an international competition.

  • Start by reading the Team WorldEd FAQ.  Then, download the apps to review them yourself and pick one or two to share with learners and other prospective app users.
  • Use Team WorldEd code 3366 to access the apps in the Google Play Store. Each app begins at basic literacy and starts with a literacy level assessment. The log-in features vary from app to app.
  • Plan your on-boarding of learners based on which app you choose.

Take advantage of this limited-time opportunity now! The four apps are available free of charge only through August 2020, but must be downloaded by August 2019 and accessed at least 3 times.

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.
