32nd Annual Technology and Adult Education Conference
The Office of Adult Education in collaboration with Temple University's Center for Community Partnerships, invites you to the 32nd Annual Technology and Adult Education Conference. This year’s conference theme "Access, Create, Explore: Digital Literacy in the New Decade". This one-day conference will be held May 8, 2020 on Temple University’s main campus in Philadelphia, PA from 9:00 am to 3:30 pm.
Coming into a new decade, the concept of literacy is changing to capture more than ever before. Multiple literacies now include reading, writing, math, problem solving, and digital literacy. In 2020, digital literacy has become less of a preferred skill, and more of a requirement. Our conference theme "Access, Create, Explore: Digital Literacy in the New Decade," invites adult educators and digital literacy practitioners to think about creative, student-centered, inclusive teaching strategies that provide access to opportunities for learners to integrate technology into their lives and obtain the skills needed to computers and the internet in their daily lives, jobs, and education.
The goal of the Technology and Adult Education Conference is to equip practitioners with tools to effectively support adults and opportunity youth (age 16 and up) to be successful in life and work. The conference will be attended by a variety of practitioners from organizations across the Philadelphia region; including Administrators, Teachers, Case Managers, Learning Coaches, and Volunteers, Computer Instructors and Trainers, and Digital Resource Specialists.
