Our Partner

GLEN World (GLobal ENglish) is a nonprofit that seeks to bridge the opportunity divide for young English Learners (ELs) from disadvantaged backgrounds. Their premier product is GLEN Learn, an app with curriculum devised by UCSB + CMU faculty that aims to bring children from "zero to reading."

Problem

Currently, GLEN Learn has a suite of existing curriculum designed by the GLEN World team. Students work through a variety of guided lessons for vocabulary, phonology, and orthography, with interactive activities and stories. However, students that advance at different paces have no options to work faster or slower, according to their needs. Moreover, teachers are unable to assign lessons that may align with other curricula they are teaching in the classroom.

Solution

Utilizing GLEN World's existing Admin Dashboard, we wanted to provide a web app that allows teachers to create their own custom lesson plans for GLEN Learn. Teachers will be able to select lesson types and word groups that auto-generates lessons that they can assign to students on specified dates. Students will then be able to access and work through these assignments on the GLEN Learn app!
