December 13th, 2012 by Matthias Sturm

package 1 coverThis week we are releasing another package of instructional resources including sample tasks 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 second 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 sample tasks and learning activities are organized by theme:

Package 1 includes:

  • Work Using Digital Technology

  • Manage Money Using Digital Technology

Package 2 includes:

  • 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.
