An update regarding the 2020 Technology + Adult Education Conference

Based on the most recent guidance from Philadelphia’s Department of Public Health regarding Covid-19, and in alignment with our partners at Philly Tech Week, the Office of Adult Education has decided to postpone our upcoming event – the Technology + Adult Education Conference, which was scheduled to take place on May 8.

We will be in touch when a new date is confirmed. We apologize for any inconvenience this change may cause you.

In the meantime, please visit philaliteracy.org or phillykeyspots.org to check for any updates.

 

The Office of Adult Education in collaboration with Temple University’s Center for Community Partnerships, invites you to the 32nd Annual Technology and Adult Education Conference. This year’s conference theme is “Access, Create, Explore: Digital Literacy in the New Decade”. This one-day conference will be held May 8, 2020 on Temple University’s main campus in Philadelphia, PA from 9:00 am to 3:30 pm.

Coming into a new decade, the concept of literacy is changing to capture more skills than ever before. Multiple literacies now include reading, writing, numeracy, problem solving, information and digital literacy. In 2020, digital literacy has become less of a preferred skill, and more of a requirement for successfully navigating all aspects of life and work. Our conference theme “Access, Create, Explore: Digital Literacy in the New Decade,” invites adult educators and digital literacy practitioners to think about creative, student-centered, inclusive teaching strategies that assist adults to integrate technology into their lives and obtain the skills needed to use computers and other devices for accessing opportunities, creating content, exploring options that enhance the many roles they fulfill as learners, employees, parents and citizens.

The goal of the Technology and Adult Education Conference is to equip practitioners with tools to effectively support adults and opportunity youth and adults (age 16 and up) to be successful in life and work. The conference will be attended by a variety of practitioners from organizations across the Philadelphia region; including Administrators, Teachers, Case Managers, Learning Coaches, and Volunteers. Computer Instructors and Trainers, and Digital Resource Specialists.
