Incorporating Digital Technologies in Adult Basic Education: Concepts, Practices and Recommendations
AlphaPlus’ most recent report explores how digital technology is changing what it means to be literate in today’s world. It also explores the impact digital technology has on teaching and learning in Adult Basic Education (ABE) programs.
On a broader level, the report makes an argument for Canada’s need for a vision of adult learning that is modeled upon powerful literacies – a vision that can be realized through greater understanding of how digital technology can contribute to individual, community and societal goals.
The report explores the following four themes:
- How digital technology is shaping and transforming literacy and learning, with implications for policy and practice
- Promising practices in incorporating digital technology in ABE
- Digital divides and inequality in access to digital technologies for learning
- Professional development for educators and related curricula and delivery policy
