English Now! Come explore an innovative, blended learning model
English Now! learning circles are an innovative, blended learning model incorporating face-to-face meetings and online content (online course and mobile apps). We will look at how ten different adult education programs across the U.S. worked with ELLs in weekly learning circles over a one year period using a blended mix of digital content and small group meetings facilitated by a teacher or volunteer. We will describe the English Now! implementation framework, share the tools and resources from the project, discuss learnings from the programs about what works, share resources for onboarding learners to apps, and focus on how participants can adapt the model within their own contexts and programs. The English Now! project is generously funded by the Dollar General Literacy Foundation.
