Overview: 

Adult learning programs and other organizations that provide direct services to adults with limited literacy are increasingly looking to mobile learning to extend learning opportunities. The Adult Literacy XPRIZE Communities Competition, funded by the Barbara Bush and Dollar General Literacy Foundations, aims to “put free learning tools in the hands of those who need them the most, so learning can happen anytime, anywhere.” They will provide apps designed for native English-speakers and English language learner adults.

Join ACLS, SABES, and other adult education colleagues to learn how you can increase access to free mobile learning apps for adults in your program and in your community by registering here for this webinar from 2:00 p.m. - 3:00 p.m. ET,  presented by Team WorldEd for the XPRIZE Communities Competition.

Description: 

Adult learning programs and other organizations who provide direct services to adults with limited literacy are increasingly looking to mobile learning to extend learning opportunities. Team WorldEd will provide support and access to synergy that comes from working with others as part of the XPRIZE Communities Competition. We will discuss the purpose, requirements, and strategies of this competition for those who have joined or are thinking of joining Team WorldEd. We’ll hear about learner recruitment strategies being planned and implemented and check in about what assistance and recruitment materials Team members would find helpful.

Note: Because this event is offered through our SABES partnerships, you will register for this webinar through this link rather than directly through the SABES Calendar.
