I like that about the new EdTech Strategy Toolkit. You can think about WHAT your learning objective is, then choose the right tool.

do you have a link to share that tool that helps practitioners choose the right tool based on their needs? I think I missed that. thx

Michele Vick

Do you use a digital tool for self-reflection? I have seen Google Slides or Power Point for online journals that the coach leaves comments on. Any other recommendations?

Hello, I liked the idea of starting with an assessment to set a baseline from which learning should kick-off, however I am not sure how the feedback the practitioner gets throughout his Learning journey. Is it only based on self evaluation and reflection based on the goal he sets at the beginning ?
areej alia
49:03
Can highly digital students be mentors for their peers
Monica Leong
50:02
So many great resources shared here in a clear and concise way. thank you!

Yes Areej, facilitating peer learning is definitely a best practice- and also helps with developing future teachers who understand and represent our learners

I do agree with the adults learn when it relates to their previous experiences
Yaffa Abuhamda

As this motivates them to learn..
Annalisa Crowe

What digital literacy elements or skills have you seen in your learners over the past two years? What are some deficit-based language you’ve seen in adult education?
Alison Webber
01:03:34
Monica- we're about to release a new version of CrowdED Learning Skillblox' app- that allows teachers or learners to create personalized playlists: https://www.crowdedlearning.org/skillblox
Monica Leong
01:04:40
@Alison - great! Thank you!
Alison Webber
01:04:51
Please sign up to that mailing list- or our edtech center one to be notified once released- as it will enable combining instructional resources from different content areas into one playlist and assign it to learners or groups of learners. And it's free! https://www.crowdedlearning.org/contact

great , thx for mentioning the differentiated and targeted instructions , those are essential in every learning process
Adam Kieffer
01:06:35
I'd appreciate some seeing some examples of "deficit-based language," so I can better recognize it. IS DBL coming from ABE practitioners or learners? Or both?
Jen Vanek

Yes! True! Observed in my research!

Don't we need to start by teaching discreet skills so they can later project out from the skill to different platforms?
Jackie Aguilera
01:10:52
Can we get a complete list of all these resources please?
areej alia
01:11:29
the idea of making learners doing their own action plans is important and be agent of their learning
Jackie Aguilera
01:11:47
Yes @areej alia!!!
Yaffa Abuhamda
01:12:15
They make their learning.
Jen Vanek
01:12:16
+1 Jamie @adam… one example of deficit framing is English learner versus Limited English Proficient. Or low-level learner versus naming the course foundational.
Jen Vanek
01:13:02
(the order of my examples is not parallel, but I hope the intent is clear)
Adam Kieffer
01:13:03
Thanks, yeah, the more concrete examples the better.

I agree! @jamie Harris Always look at the glass half full instead of half empty
Nell Eckersley
01:13:26
We're seeing teachers feeling challenged when asked to incorporate digital skills into their content instruction. We're working on the idea of developing lesson ideas around this and incorporating the idea of routines. Do you have any resources around this or do other folks on the call have suggestions?
Jackie Aguilera
01:13:43
This has been an incredible session! I have to go to another meeting, but it's been great. Thank you so much!!!
Jen Vanek
01:13:50
Routines! Yes, Nell that’s the structure of the Gride app

Is anyone doing research on the transfer of native language smart phone use to English language applications. We find this dynamic all over the place at Tyson Foods.
Nell Eckersley
01:14:43
@Jen yes--it was from the ed tech toolkit that the idea of routines came to us
Alison Webber
01:14:58
One example of asset-based approaches is that we hard a lot in the scan that assessments often don't recognize the skills learners to have, especially when the learners are immigrants or youth or come from a culture different from the instructors or program managers
Jen Vanek
01:15:12
great. We’ll be building out more developed examples through DRAW
areej alia
01:15:14
How can learners use digital tools without getting into the chaos of using them??
Alison Webber
01:15:24
Immigrant communities were using texting and social media long before many of our programs recognized those as digital skills
Jen Vanek
01:16:02
@areej - I think you need to have an understanding of what learners CAN do and then start from there. Gradually add new tech as they build skills and comfort bit by bit
Annalisa Crowe

Areej - one of the strategies is to create and use routines that leaners and teachers can be comfortable with, but then add challenges
