Alberta Advanced Education and Technology
This document summarizes comments from 539 individuals on a literacy framework for Alberta, provided during the Alberta Literacy Forum held in Edmonton from April 14 to 16, 2008. The Forum was Alberta's contribution to the Council of Ministers of Education, Canada (CMEC) Pan-Canadian Interactive Literacy Forum, which involved all of Canada's provinces and territories holding fora in their jurisdictions to create a pan-Canadian dialogue on literacy. On Monday, April 14, Alberta participants spent the morning listening to speakers webcast from Vancouver and Toronto, including Ms. Adrienne Clarkson and Mr. Linwood Barclay. The afternoon focused on setting the stage and then seeking the views of Forum participants on what was important to improve literacy policy, programs and services in Alberta. Three appendixes are included: (1) Alberta Literacy Forum Participant Numbers by Sector and Role; (2) Excerpt from the Literacy Forum Workbook--Background Information for Discussions on a Literacy Framework for Alberta; and (3) Summary of Challenges and Solutions by Outcome.
