Our vision is to leverage technology to provide access to free educational support to every child around the globe. We have constructed an on-line portal where students across the globe can access variety of free eLearning materials powered by machine learning set of technologies. We know that knowledge and education are the basics of economic opportunity.
Giving children access to basic education from a young age is critical for the success of any country. We believe the biggest impact can be made by augmenting school activities with powerful e-Learning technologies. Our platform was developed to target ESL students in both US and global community.
This year we will focus both externally by reaching learners and schools across the globe and locally by working within our community here in Washington State.
Some ELS teaching methods are proven to be more effective than others for second language acquisition. Hedge (2000) found that conversational rules like openings and closings and learning how to pass from one conversational situation to another are imperative to language competency. It was found that story-telling, role-playing in pairs, and information gap exercises were most effective at allowing ESL students to grasp new language concepts. Distance Teaching and Mobile Learning (DTML) provides opportunities for each of these methods to be used to improve English skills for the most disadvantaged youth.
