Assessing and Teaching Adult Learners' Basic and Advanced 21st Century Digital Literacy Skills
Rosen, David J.
Adult Literacy Education, v2 n1 p73-75 Spr 2020
In the technology solutions column of this special issue of Adult Literacy Education, that focuses on Broadening the Lens on Adult Literacy Education Outcomes, the author wants to challenge the field to expand the view of digital literacy. Of course, basic digital literacy skills must be included, but the field needs to look beyond to the digital skills and attitudes adults need in order to research their questions; judge the quality of information they have found; and to solve problems at home, work and in their community that require or can benefit from the use of digital skills, comfort, confidence and fluency. These define the digital literacy capacity adults need to solve new problems facing us in a changing society, including the new problems created by ever-changing technology itself.
