Technology & Adult Ed Conference 2019
Join the Office of Adult Education in collaboration with Temple University's Center for Community Partnerships at the 31st Annual Technology & Adult Ed Conference. The theme for the conference is "Keep It Real: Teaching Tech Skills for Work and Everyday". This one-day conference will be held May 10, 2019 on Temple University’s main campus in Philadelphia, PA from 9:00 am to 3:30 pm. 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 high school equivalency testing, English language acquisition, entry into post-secondary education and training, and securing family-sustaining jobs. The conference will be attended by a variety of adult education practitioners from a wide range of adult education organizations across the region; including Executive Directors, Coordinators, Teachers, Case Managers/Learning Coaches and Volunteers.
Technology is a powerful tool in our work and everyday lives. We use technology to apply for social services, pay bills, apply for jobs, and much more. This conference will focus on providing adult educators with tools and strategies for teaching technology. Our theme "Keep it Real: Teaching Tech Skills for Work and Every day," invites adult educators to think about creative, student-centered and effective teaching strategies to incorporate technology into the classroom to support learners’ knowledge of and comfort with technology in daily life and for work. Adult educators can make sure their learners are prepared to thrive in the modern world by integrating these technology skills into their instruction.
