Responding to the Needs of Adult Literacy Programs

Adult literacy instructors are increasingly using technology to supplement or precipitate learning. While programs are increasingly using digital tools, 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, sponsored by the Dollar General Literacy Foundation, 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 distance and blended learning solutions.

****The Mobile Learning Fund application is currently closed. Applications will be accepted again on July 1st.****
