Dear Friends,

We’re pleased to announce the launch of a new resource guide: Promoting Digital Literacy for Adult Learnershttps://assets.ctfassets.net/qb4xilcny5qs/3y0jef51JCSd2vJeTETqBH/88ed1ff5cb624572ec4767c99a98bcf5/DigitalLiteracyforAdultLearners-ResourceGuide-April2022_updated.pdf.

This guide, developed by the Barbara Bush Foundation in partnership with Digital Promisehttps://digitalpromise.org/, aims to meet the growing professional development needs of adult educators, large employers, workplaces, and volunteers who work with adult learners – specifically in digital literacy. It has been peer reviewed by adult literacy experts and corporate partners, is grounded in adult learning theory, and includes practical approaches for working with adult learners.

This new guide is different from others you may have used before because:

  • It teaches digital literacy from the perspective of teaching a learner how to use and apply a set of skills.

  • It has been designed using our knowledge of how learning sciences work, grounded in an understanding of the learner experience in digital literacy skills development.

  • The development process promoted inclusive design approaches. We engaged multiple perspectives to create a detailed outline for the guide's content, including researchers, administrators, industry leaders, and most importantly, adult learning practitioners – our population of focus.

  • We worked collaboratively with an expert review panel to clarify concepts, integrate tools and resources, and align work with leading initiatives in adult education and digital literacy for greater impact.

We invite you to explore the guide and we hope that you will share it with other educators and organizations in your network. If you do, please let us know so that we can accurately track dissemination and use by emailing us at andri@barbarabush.orgmailto:andri@barbarabush.org.

Thank you for your continued support.

Sincerely,

Becky

Subject: [NCL Members] New: State Playbook on digital skills data
Hello colleagues,

I'm happy to share the announcement of a brand-new publicationhttps://www.nga.org/center/publications/using-data-to-advance-digital-skills-a-state-playbook/ to help state officials and other digital equity advocates get prepared for Digital Equity Planning by:

  • Getting an overview of the types of digital skills that are available
  • Walking through a set of guiding questions to help identify state priorities in using existing data sets or conducting original data collection
  • Providing case examples of how states are beginning to nibble away at this challenging issue

National Skills Coalition has collaborated with the National Governors Association - Workforce Innovation Network, the Ed Tech Center at World Education, and the National Digital Inclusion Alliance on this publication. It is called Using Data to Advance Digital Skills: A State Playbookhttps://www.nga.org/center/publications/using-data-to-advance-digital-skills-a-state-playbook/. Importantly, this is Version 1.0 -- we fully anticipate updating and revising this document as new information comes out from NTIA and others about the data states could and should include in their Digital Equity Plans.

Please share with your networks -- and if you're on social media, please retweet!https://twitter.com/SkillsCoalition/status/1516811741425975297
