The Words2Learn Mobile Learning Project helps accelerate the learning of academic and health career related vocabulary and concepts for adults preparing to enter postsecondary education and technical training through the creation of an app and the use of a state-of-the-art mobile learning management system. In the app, students are given five words per session, followed by multiple exposures to each word or concept in different formats to optimize learning. Words2Learn Mobile Learning makes use of a flipped classroom approach, so that teachers can use class time for additional support and opportunities to extend and apply what students have previously learned from the app.
This project is led and managed by World Education and is offered by World Education’s National College Transition Network to New England adult educators. It is funded by the Nellie Mae Education Foundation.
