Developing Electronic Audio-Visual Food Safety Training for Limited English-Speaking Workers in the Food Service Industry

The goal of this proposal is to develop a user-friendly, interactive food safety-training program tailored for low literacy and limited English workers, a critical segment of the Minnesota food industry workforce. The program will be designed and developed using iOS and/or Android applications (apps). This app will supplement live training, and will be organized by topics covered in the food safety certification class. Learners will use this app to prepare for the food manager certification class and receive rapid feedback on their understanding through voiceover multiple choice questions, selection of a corresponding image on the screen, or other audio-visual cues.
