Skillrise. An ISTE Initiative

SkillRise is an initiative of the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE). We help organizations empower adult learning with educational technology.

Current free resources include:

SkillRise Framework for Technology Implementation
To thrive in the digital era, all adults need to develop the digital competencies needed in today’s workplace. The SkillRise framework was created to help employers as well as adult learning and workforce development organizations understand how to leverage technology to improve education and training programs.

Upskill with Edtech Online Class
The course is grounded in the SkillRise framework and walks educators through the process of developing a new vision for adult and workforce learning, all the way through sustainability implementing that new vision.

Blog and Podcast Series
The Upskill with Edtech podcast explores how digital tools can be used to accelerate innovation in teaching and learning to support career advancement and lifelong learning for workers and job-seekers. It is available on most major podcast apps (Spotify, Apple Podcasts, Stitcher, Google Podcasts, etc.).

The blog series explores a variety of topics related to adult learning, educational technology, and the future of work.

Community of Practice and Social
The Workforce Edtech group on LinkedIn brings together over 300 adult educators and workforce development professionals to share best practices, resources, and ideas related to the implementation of technology in support of adult education and workforce development.

SkillRise will also be sharing other new resources throughout 2020 and 2021, so follow the project on Twitter to stay in the loop.
