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.
