A series of Digital Technologies E-Bulletins dedicated to exploring, discussing and sharing our ongoing research and observations related to digital technologies and the Ontario Adult Literacy Curriculum Framework (OALCF).
The E-Learning on the Goal Paths e-bulletin is focused on activities that instructors and learners can use to find information about each of the goal paths, and to work on digital skills and building computer self-efficacy.
To help you find activities and resources quickly, we have used a Live Binder - essentially a “three-ring binder on the web” that functions as a web-based repository of live links, and is a very handy way to keep links organized by topic or theme.
The E-Learning on the Goal Paths Live Binder is organized by goal path and under each tab you will find direct links to informational and learning activity sites which provide students with opportunities to acquire and practice digital skills.
E-learning is becoming an increasingly important component in our work, in further education and training and in our daily life.
In this OALCF Goal Paths and E-learning e-bulletin, we take a look at the transitional competency requirements in each of the OALCF goal paths related to e-learning and the opportunities currently available to adult literacy students in Ontario.
As we undertook this brief review of e-learning in the goal paths, we had the following questions in mind:
- What do we know about e-learning demands and opportunities in each of the goal paths?
- What do learners need to know and be able to do in relation to e-learning in order to support a successful transition to their next step?
- What do instructors need to know to support students in developing the necessary e-learning competencies?
- Where and how does e-learning fit with the OALCF?
Much of what we learned is information already familiar to experienced adult literacy practitioners; however, we want to highlight the ever-increasing reach of e-learning in workplaces and in education.
