PDE Adult Education Overview
World Education Adult literacy
Education
Technology for adult learning must be multifaceted and
relevant. The Workforce Education and Lifelong Learning
program has taken incremental steps to include
technology into the program design for the past 8 years.
First using audio video equipment for learner
engagement, then requiring the use of DVD lessons for
homework completion and finally including Blended
learning through Distance Learning. A small computer lab of
five computers provided introduction to job search and career
exploration via the internet. Common Core standards have now
increased the need to further enhance the use of technology to
promote career and college acquisition.
