Responding to the Needs of Adult Literacy Programs

Adult literacy instructors are increasingly using technology as a way to supplement or even precipitate learning. While programs are introducing technology, including blended learning, they are often operating without the appropriate technology solutions to support their curriculum—proven solutions that are affordable, easy-to-use, and engaging for learners.

The Mobile Learning Fund builds on ProLiteracy’s rich history of providing quality instructional materials through the National Book Fund. Our goal is to continue building capacity among literacy programs by supporting the adoption of blended learning solutions, thereby helping learners make faster gains and reaching those learners who are on waiting lists or who cannot regularly attend classes.

*** As of 9/9/2021 the Mobile Learning Fund is only accepting applications for Learning Upgrade licenses generously funded by Dollar General Literacy Foundation. If you submit an application for other licenses available we will keep your application on file and contact you as soon as we are able to.***
