Literacy, in prior years, had an exclusive focus on print. In the 21st century, new technologies integrated in all areas of life have required an additional set of literacy skills. Terms such as digital competence, information and communications technology (ICT), elearning, and digital literacy seek to address needs in current and future contexts. While there are differences between these definitions, there is a consensus: digital skills are necessary for employment, academia, and various other contexts in adults’ lives. During this program, participants will explore elements adult learners must address to become digitally literate, provided in the Digital Literacy Framework for Adult Learners and examine practical application of these elements through lesson activities and curated resources found in the Digital Literacy Framework: Instructor Implementation Guide.
