A Request for Adult Educator Feedback
Posted on 05/23/2022
From our friends at CrowdED Learning and the EdTech Center at World Education comes a request for educator feedback on a project under development.
SkillBlox is a free, first-of-its-kind learning plan generation tool that pulls together learning materials both from publisher resources and free and open education resources (OER) and organizes them by skill to provide an increased range of learning options for students. Developers are in the process of adding new subject areas to SkillBlox. The subjects they are adding are the five "topics" of Teaching Skills that Matter in Adult Education: Civics Education, Digital Literacy, Financial Literacy, Health Literacy, and Workforce Preparation. Developers want to make sure the new subject-level frameworks that they have developed to organize content in these subjects make it as easy as possible for adult educators to find great content for the topics and skills they teach.
Between now and Thursday, May 26, developers are asking educators to provide feedback on the subject-level frameworks. They have created a survey with a series of questions asking educators to identify where they would expect to find concepts they teach within the frameworks. Educators can review just one subject area or review all four. Each contains anywhere from 15 - 30 questions and will take about 20 minutes to complete. Here is a link to the survey to get started.
Thank you for your feedback!
