Update from the Science Instructional Videos Online Review Group

Science and health literacy colleagues,

You may be aware that in March Susan Cowles and I formed a volunteer group of science and health adult educators to develop a list of free, online science and health instructional videos, to review some of them, and to discuss how they might be used in science or health literacy classes. Using a LINCS private CoP, we have organized ourselves to work on these tasks. This is a progress report.

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.
