U.S. National Education Technology Plan

Day 6 and 7 “How can technology transform adult education and current practice?” focusing on Productivity & Infrastructure

Thank you Art Graesser for kicking off the discussion on the Productivity and Infrastructure section of the Connected Teaching and Personalized Learning: Implications of the National Education Technology Plan (NETP) for Adult Education draft report.  This is part four of a four part discussion focusing on the draft report and the question How can technology transform adult education and current practice?  

Comments on Infrastructure and Productivity Sections of NETP Report

The NETP Report identified important infrastructure and productivity components, both short-term and long-term.  The discussions in the previous days have already touched on many most of the issues.  We appear to agree that there needs to be a free portal for use 24/7, better broadband, social networking with peer and professional interactions, access to MOOCs as well high quality commercial software, on-line training material for teachers/tutors, E-Portfolios, and so on.

Welcome to first day of discussion on “How can technology transform adult education and current practice?”

Good morning and welcome to the first day of our discussion on How can technology transform adult education and current practice?”  

We are very lucky to have adult education and technology experts Art Graesser and David Rosen to facilitate a discussion aimed at answering this question in the LINCS Community’s Technology and Learning group.

Guest Discussion: How Technology Can Transform Adult Education

Dear colleagues, 

The guest discussion below is focused on the release of a new report on the National Education Technology Plan for Adult Education.  The report includes a section on assessment that should be a great interest to us in this community.  I encourage you to read through the report when it comes out, giving special attention to the assessment section so we can ask questions and provide experiences and/or comments during the guest discussion in mid August.  I will post a message here in the community as soon as I hear the report has been released.
