International assessment of learners: PIACC results

Youth and adults exploring jobs and careers using free online video resources

Pathways Colleagues,

I wonder if you would be interested in seeing free collections of (hundreds of) short, online videos for youth and adults that introduce them to specific jobs.  If so, let me know and I'll post some links here and/or email them them to you. Perhaps you already use resources like these. If so, what do you you use, and how do you use the videos?

Hi group members,

Using instructional videos in adult education

Colleagues who are interested in integrating video in instruction,

In the lead article in a just-released online journal, Digital Life and Learning I share some ideas on how digital instruction videos can be used in the adult education classroom. If this interests you, please take a look, and let me/us here have your comments and ideas about how you might use video in your own classroom.

Eight Free Career Exploration Web-based Video sites

Career Pathways Colleagues,

Video record your classes


If you – or adult education teachers or tutors you know – are interested in sharing on video what you do in your adult education (basic literacy, ABE, ASE, ESOL/ESL, or transition to higher ed) classes, you may earn fame and glory, have a video of your teaching that is useful for job applications and/or in applying for a teaching credential, and – - if you are seen as a good teacher –  you may get many, many public thanks from adult learners.

Dyslexia: A Landmark Case - A Video

Hello group users,

The National Center on Learning Disabilities (NCLD) is an excellent source of LD news, information, and resources.

They have posted a resource that you may find interesting.  Dr. Marilyn Bartlett is a successful professor of law and education. She is also a person with dyslexia. Her request to use appropriate accommodations while taking her bar exam was denied.  She filed a lawsuit to fight for her rights under the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990—and won!

ABE and ESOL/ESL Instructional Videos websites page


I have created a short Literacy List web page whose focus is (largely free) instructional videos. I plan to add to this page, so check back from time to time. Also, if you don't see listed a good instructional video website that you and your students like, send me the web address and I'll take a look.
