Digital Technology and Literacy Today

AlphaPlus’ most recent report, Incorporating Digital Technologies in Adult Basic Education: Concepts, Practices and Recommendations, explores how digital technology is changing what it means to be literate in today’s world. It also explores the impact digital technology has on teaching and learning in Adult Basic Education (ABE) programs.

On a broader level, the report makes an argument for Canada’s need for a vision of adult learning that is modeled upon powerful literacies – a vision that can be realized through greater understanding of how digital technology can contribute to individual, community and societal goals.

In describing the importance of the recently published report, Greg Gulas, Executive Director at AlphaPlus, says: “In an increasingly complicated and competitive world, non literate adults are all but certain to be left out of the rapidly changing economy. In this light, we at AlphaPlus strongly support the integration of digital technologies in adult literacy teaching and learning.”
