McGinty, Jacqueline M.; Rehak, Kimberly M.
American Association for Adult and Continuing Education, Paper presented at the American Association for Adult and Continuing Education 2022 Conference (Milwaukee, WI, Oct 11-14, 2022)
Critical educational approaches challenge practices and structures that perpetuate inequalities. The goal is to surpass knowledge acquisition, emphasizing the interconnections of community and context. Twenty-first-century adult education environments must attend to digital literacy and aim to help close the digital divide. One way to address this issue is to promote critical digital andragogy as part of adult education practice. This article explores the concept of critical digital andragogy and the effects of technology on adult education. Adult educators must empower learners when engaging in digital spaces. The authors suggest strategies that adult educators should implement when using digital tools in their teaching practice. [For the full proceedings, see ED631897.]
