Using information and communication technologies in adult literacy education: new practices, new challenges

1 Nov 2005
Description

New information and communication technologies are changing literacy practices at an unprecedented rate, posing new questions and challenges for literacy educators. Using a case study approach, Ilana Snyder, Anne Jones and Joseph Lo Bianco examine the interaction between new and emerging digital technologies, adult learning and literacies for both educators and learners. Their findings demonstrate that changes to teaching practices associated with the use of information and communication technologies are possible. Some important findings also provide a base for developing systematic and informed approaches to further adult literacy education in an age where literacy practices are increasingly mediated by the use of information and communication technologies.
