Event: Guided LINCS Community discussion with Drs. Art Graesser and David Rosen
Date: August 13-19, 2013
Where: LINCS Community: Technology and Learning group
How can technology transform adult education and current practice?
During August 13-19, 2013, adult education and technology experts Art Graesser and David Rosen will facilitate a discussion aimed at answering this question in the LINCS Community’s Technology and Learning group. All current community members and the public are invited to participate in this discussion about the use of education technology in the adult education field to innovate teaching and learning to meet the needs of adult learners.
This dialogue is in response to the U.S. Department of Education, Office of Vocational and Adult Education’s call for public comments on a draft report recently released on LINCS: Connected Teaching and Personalized Learning: Implications of the National Education Technology Plan (NETP) for Adult Education, produced through a contract with the American Institutes for Research (AIR).
Drs. Graesser and Rosen will share their reflections on the draft report with the LINCS Community in the Technology and Learning discussion group. To guide the discussion, this event will consider the following questions:
- How can the adult education field realize the vision and goals of the NETP, given its limited resources?
- Which NETP areas should be the field’s immediate focus, and what are the implications for policy and practice?
- How can the vision of connected teaching and personalized learning be applied to the adult education field and for adult learners currently unconnected to an established program?
