We are thrilled to announce that we have received a Phase II SBIR grant from the U.S. Department of Education’s Institute for Education Sciences (IES) for $900,000! It is a wonderful validation of the work completed during Phase I and the potential for LoomVue to revolutionize English Language Learning in middle and high schools. We are excited to continue our collaboration with WestEd who will be conducting a full-scale evaluation as part of the Phase II grant.

Check out our video summary of our Phase I work, which also introduces some exciting new priorities for Phase II including a mobile app.
