Technology Use Trends for Adult Learners, and the Implications of These Trends

Technology colleagues,

I am seeing some trends in the adult education classrooms I visit, from face-to-face and online coversations with adult education teachers, and from blogs. I wonder if you are seeing these, too.

2014 Trends

1. Nearly all adult education students in the U.S. now have cell phones.

2. Many more students, especially ELL students, have smart phones.

3. Portable digital devices such as phones and tablets are the new family technology priority, not necessarily a family computer.

Link to Student Cell Phone Survey


I have been asked for the link to the adult learner cell/mobile phone survey that I mentioned yesterday in our NETP Report discussion. The survey is available only in English. If you translate it, please post your translation and send us a link to it. (After all, that kind of sharing of resources is what people do in a community of practice, right?) If you use the survey or adapt it, please share this information, too.
