With their apps for iOS and Android, the millions of learners who don’t have a computer but do have a phone now have access to quality literacy instruction tools on their smartphones, tablets, and other mobile devices. The apps aim to improve students’ time-on-task by allowing ELLs of all ages to work through their lessons anytime and anywhere. Including more than 300 sequenced classes, the content covers phonics, decoding, vocabulary, grammar, writing, and listening. To help make learning English more fun and memorable, mobile users have access to musical lessons that feature catchy, interactive songs. Each lesson provides practice problems accompanied by immediate intervention and remediation with multimedia supports. Students can repeat lessons until they master them, earning a gold certificate when they become proficient in each of the standard’s benchmarks. Learn more.
