Features News

Would you like to use innovative technology to improve adult learning experiences?

The Office of Adult Education (OAE) is pleased to announce a new grant opportunity to create innovative communities of practice. Starting in Fall 2019, OAE will launch a new initiative funded by the Barra Foundation. Practitioners from selected provider agencies will join communities of practice. Each community of practice will pilot new strategies to use technology in their classrooms. This could include trying new websites or apps to improve academic skills, online communication platforms to improve retention, and much more!  Funding is available!

At the close of this grant we will compile the resources and lessons learned by participating organizations. This will form a toolkit that will be shared with the Philadelphia adult education community.

This grant is  funded by the Barra Foundation.

Want to learn more? Register here for a Lunch & Learn Information Session on June 22, 2018 from 12:30-2 P.M.
