Making Sense of the Credentials Landscape
In the last few years, those in the adult education field have been discussing the importance of credentials that are useful for the workforce and further education. However, the credentials landscape is a bit like the Wild West and not always easy to make sense of.
Better Understanding Personalized Learning
One of the advantages of technology is that it can be used to personalize a student’s learning, providing resources and activities that are tailored to a student’s needs and that supplement what a student is learning with other students through whole-group instruction.
Helping Get Over Our Fear of Change
Technology is a considerable driver for change, not just in schools and workplaces but in all aspects of our lives. With change, though, comes fear. We can’t let our fear of technology, however, get in the way of preparing our students for their lives beyond adult education.
