New funding allows the company to offer pilots of its WIDA- and Common Core-aligned language-acquisition solution to a limited number of schools.

 

(San Francisco, CA) November 11, 2015 - Lingo Jingo, an award-winning language-acquisition solution supporting English language learners (ELLs) and educators, has been awarded a grant from the U.S. Department of Education (DOE).

The Small Business Innovation Research funding from the Institute of Education Sciences and the DOE allows Lingo Jingo to offer a limited number of schools the opportunity to sign up for highly-supported pilot programs. 

“Lingo Jingo is at the top of the list as most critical to addressing a pressing need in our country,” said Ed Metz, the program manager for the Small Business Innovation Research group at the DOE. “It’s an incredible opportunity to make a difference with language educators who sometimes don’t have immediate access to materials.”

Lingo Jingo’s online resources include content promoting the WIDA English language proficiency standards, the Common Core State Standards, and the California English Language Development standards. Lingo Jingo offers fully customizable instructional supports that follow leading English learning curricula to improve language development.  Districts using the solution can easily map Lingo Jingo’s content over their own curriculum, ensuring that the solution adapts to the needs of educators and learners alike.

“Lingo Jingo is dedicated to supporting language educators and offering rigorous, fun content which aligns with language development standards being followed in the classroom, including WIDA, Common Core and the California ELD. We are committed to supporting educators by providing an effective solution and making their lives easier,” said Douglas Chrystall, co-founder of Lingo Jingo. “Language acquisition is incredibly difficult, and our solution provides educators a way to accelerate learning for ELLs. By creating a flexible, easy-to-access platform, schools and districts have the ability to customize our content to meet their needs rather than the other way around.”

Since Lingo Jingo launched in 2011, districts across the country have adopted the platform to support ELL education as well as the acquisition of other world languages.
