Numeracy into Action: Putting Numeracy Research into Practice
Sellers, Daniel; Byrne, Tina
Adult Learner: The Irish Journal of Adult and Community Education, p112-120 2015
In 2014 the National Adult Literacy Agency (NALA) published a research report titled "What Really Counts Next: Action Learning Project with Numeracy Tutors" (Sellers and Byrne, 2014). The report provided an in-depth insight into the way tutors made changes to their practice, and offered practical tips on how to teach numeracy to adult learners in order to support their numeracy development. This article summarises the main findings from the report and provides two mini case studies showcasing numeracy work in action.
