A literacy app for adult learners developed by Southern Methodist University and Dallas-based Literacy Instruction for Texas is moving forward in the $7 million Barbara Bush Foundation Adult Literacy XPRIZE competition.
XPRIZE named the Dallas team, People ForWords, one of five finalists in the competition Friday. The remaining teams come from around the U.S. and the world with groups from India and China among the finalists.
“It’s a badge of honor for innovation,” Corey Clark, deputy director for research at SMU Guildhall and one of the game’s developers, told Dallas Innovates about becoming a finalist.
