Colleagues, Since no has yet responded to my previous posting highlighting these free tools, initially shared by David Rosen, I wanted to repost. These resources seem especially relevant as we transtition to the new computer-based testing.

If you have an interest in ensuring adult learners have the technology skills they need, check out these free resources and let us know how you might integrate them into your program.

Cheers, Susan

Should we have a national digital literacy policy?

Colleagues,

On September 2nd a group called It's Easier Than You Think plans to begin a campaign for a national digital literacy policy. What do you think of this idea? Should adult digital literacy be included in a national digital literacy policy? Are you aware of any national adult literacy organizations that are part of this campaign?
