The  GogyUp  Literacy Support System
Built with adults from limited literacy backgrounds and their employers, the GogyUp Literacy Support System (LSS) is:
  • The GogyUp Reader: a free app that embeds phonemic awareness and vocabulary acquisition within any text. Curated readings in our in-app library also contain no-fail puzzles to build comprehension. 
  • The GogyUp Trainer: a standalone, human resource tool for supervisors and any employee. The GogyUp LSS expands the opportunities for the employee to train and learn how work confidently and safely.  The supervisor gets a new window in to how well employees understand their assigned work:
                1) Using any pre-existing training documentation,
                2) Upload it to your GogyUp Trainer,
                3) Select key vocabulary and concepts you need your employees to know to work safely and efficiently, 
                4) Publish and send to employee
GogyUp Reader accounts on any Android, iOS smart device or the Web.
                5) Follow employee progress, identify areas for intervention, and effortlessly keep a log of who has trained for what.

GogyUp’s Literacy Support System (LSS)

GogyUp LSS reduces language barriers between employees and supervisors as it increases employee literacy – enabling your company to increase safety and productivity while expanding your employees’ skills and knowledge.

The right people with the right experience at the right time.
Our name, GogyUp (go-jee-up) reflects our mission to combine the right pedaGOGY with the appropriate technology to expand access to literacy instruction, reduce workplace language barriers and increase economic opportunity. 

Our founding team brings a set of skills that uniquely equips GogyUp to:
  1. Deepen the pool of talent necessary to expand the nation’s workforce, 
  2. Profoundly expand opportunity for any adult to achieve English literacy, 
  3. Ensure prosperity for all families and businesses.
But the team’s greatest asset is our ethos to hold our “students” (Gogy-speak for our end-users) and our customers (employers) at the center of everything.  We constantly strive to understand all the factors in our students’ lives and the challenges our customers seek to solve.

Ned’s twenty-five year career spanned different environments (special education, K-12 and Higher Education) and various roles (classroom teacher, instructional designer, school administrator, program design and implementation of Open Educational Resources at state and national levels).  These experiences give him a broad and deep knowledge of the various factors contributing to a program’s failure and success.
