Launching sample tasks and learning activities for the Use Digital Technology competency

October 17th, 2012 by Monika Jankowska-Pacyna

package 1 coverThis week we are launching a package of instructional resources including sample tasks and learning activities to support practitioners using digital technology in Literacy and Basic Skills (LBS) programs within the context of the Ontario Adult Literacy Curriculum Framework (OALCF).

The first of two packages can be downloaded at http://usedigitaltechnology.alphaplus.ca or under OALCF tab on our website, either in full or by theme. The included sample tasks are not intended to be exhaustive, rather they aim to provide instructional resources developed for LBS practitioners to use and adapt, expand, or build on.

The first instructional resource package was introduced during a webinar on Tuesday, October 17. The session recording will be available shortly.

The sample tasks and learning activities are organized by theme:

Package 1 is available on our website and includes:

  • Work Using Digital Technology

  • Manage Money Using Digital Technology

Package 2 will be available later in the Fall and will contain:

  • Manage Health Using Digital Technology

  • Manage Learning Using Digital Technology

  • Share and Collaborate Using Digital Technologies

These instructional resources were developed in collaboration with Anne-Marie Kaskens and Tracey Mollins. Instructors and learners at The Literacy Group of Waterloo Region reviewed many of the tasks and provided valuable feedback. We thank them all for their invaluable support.
