Using the Integrating Technology Group when you have a Question about Using Technology

Colleagues,

I encourage you to post questions in the Integrating Technology group related to using technology in your teaching, program management or professional development. Perhaps someone in the LINCS community has a good answer, or can help in other ways.

Problem Solving in Technology-Rich Environments (PS-TRE)

Integrating Technology Colleagues,

Jen Vanek, Director of the IDEAL Consortium in the Ed Tech Center at World Education, has written a guide to Problem Solving in Technology-Rich Environments (PS-TRE), based in part on the PIAAC PS-TRE conceptual framework and with concrete, practical advice for teachers. Take a look, and perhaps later this spring or summer, we can invite Jen to discuss this with us.

What business model would be needed to provide every adult learner in the U.S. with digital literacy and problem solving skills?

Colleagues,

I would like to call your attention to a new blog article I wrote that I hope will launch a national discussion to address this question: What business model would be needed to provide every adult learner in the U.S. with digital literacy and problem solving skills? http://davidjrosen.wordpress.com/
It is particularly relevant, I believe, to this group.  I hope we can discuss it here.

Digital Promise Blog article on Digital Literacy and Problem Solving

Colleagues,

In February I moderated a round table on digital literacy and problem-solving in Washington, D.C. as part of the U.S. Department of Education (OCTAE) PIAAC engagement process. I have written a short blog article for Digital Promise on the results. You will find this at http://www.digitalpromise.org/improving-digital-literacy-problem-solving-in-american-adults/ I would welcome your comments and questions about it here.
