Research-based Recommendations for Digital Learning in Adult Basic Education

Date: Thursday, January 11, 2018
Time: 2:00 pm, EST

In June, the Joyce Foundation released the findings from a three-year research study of digital learning technology.  The study sought to answer two core questions about using digital learning technology in adult ed classrooms.  First, could digital learning technology improve learning outcomes among ABE numeracy and literacy students?  And second, if so, what were the elements that produced the most significant results?  Please join Michael Ormsby and Dan Griffith of Essential Education in this fascinating webinar exploring the core questions about the efficacy of digital learning in adult basic education. You will earn about the three critical core elements that must be present in learning software for success with adults.  

Presented by: Michael Ormsby and Dan Griffith

Professional Organizations and State Office Relationship Building

DATE: Wednesday, JANUARY 17, 2018
TIME: 2:00 PM, EST

Adult Education state offices and state professional organizations are critical partners in the field to support program administrators, practitioners and student success. Partnerships and networks that work for the goal of successful adult education programing, like the Maryland Adult Education and Literacy Services office and the Maryland Association of Adult Continuing and Community Education have interacted closely over the years and the relationship has changed, grown and evolved to where it is today.

The presenters will share the history and timeline of this relationship and strategies that have worked to promote openness, transparency, clear expectations of roles, inclusion and as a conduit for information to connect all the stakeholders in the field. The panel of experts will field questions and engage the audience in a discussion to share experiences, challenges and successes in maintaining this vital relationship.

Presented by: Melissa Zervos, Dr. Ellen N. Beattie, Todd Elliot, Heather Ritchie, and Douglas Weimer
