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.
Applications are now being accepted!
