These participant materials are from a videoconference that addressed the needs of adult literacy program administrators, instructors, and tutors beginning or continuing the technology implementation process. Section I contains the videoconference materials: agenda; videoconference evaluation form; biographical and program information; executive summary of the Office of Technology's report, "Adult Literacy and New Technologies"; and technology glossary. An implementation guide is designed as a basic primer, with seven steps to follow when integrating computers into instructional programs. A guide lists adult literacy software evaluation criteria. A document on Internet-based videoconference resources lists Internet resources created for the videoconference and additional resources available online that are relevant to adult literacy and provides instructions for subscribing to and accessing resources through online services and for accessing the videoconference resources through an institutional affiliation. An action planning form concludes the first section. Section II contains the following reference materials: annotated bibliography of 28 adult literacy and technology resources; annotated listing of 16 adult literacy organizational resources; information on funding resources; a 3-part guide to joining the online community; information on finding and using low-cost computer software; and CD-ROM sources of free or low-cost software.
