Amanda Bergson-Shilcock

In addition to the HR app that learners needed to be able to use, are there other digital skills that they need to use on the job?
Victor Burgos
52:36
Has your company considered partnering with a bilingual technical distance education expert?
Anson Green
53:17
I love this workplace model!
David Rosen
53:19
Kamille, how do you address issues of program evaluation? Do you have an evaluation team? What kinds of data do you collect for program improvement decision making?
Becky Payton VA
54:23
What a wonderful holistic approach to helping people!!! Love the vision of the employer.
David Rosen

Yes!
Paul Jurmo
01:03:18
A Big Question: How can adult educators work with employers, labor unions, and other partners to increase investment in this kind of integrated, multi-purpose education for incumbent workers (at local, state, and national levels)?
Becky Payton VA
01:03:48
You read my mind, Paul.
Rachel Riggs
01:04:34
Thanks, Paul! Please, everyone continue to add questions here. If we don't get to them during the Q & A, we'll encourage you to join breakout rooms to continue the conversation!
Tadd Wamester EnGen
01:05:48
Love seeing the comprehensive and stackable pathways!
Becky Payton VA
01:05:49
Adding to Paul's question. Can we get employer testimonies from Cambria and Tyson to use with employers?
Victor Burgos
01:07:02
I love the employer's efforts with ELLs and opening up the doors to upskilling incumbent employees.
Jen Vanek | she/her | WorldEd
01:07:23
thanks, Anson!
Tadd Wamester EnGen
01:08:27
Digital skills are foundational!
Ashley Garrigan
01:09:26
Do you use both Burlington English and EnGen? Are they complementary or do they overlap?
Paul Jurmo
01:09:36
These stories are very helpful and important to share, but this idea of basic education for incumbent workers has dwindled in our field in the past 2-3 decades. This is despite the ongoing calls from employers for workers who have the kinds of skills described in this webinar. Federal, state, and local governments, individual employers and trade associations, and labor unions and other stakeholders should be collaborating on this issue. (There are great models from previous years that could be learned from and built on.)
Christine Muller
01:11:05
What was the last thing Life?
David Rosen
01:11:47
Anson, is Tyson Foods able to help employees get access to the Internet, for example from home) too affordable computers at home, and to help maintaining their devices in Internet services? Do you have employee-centered digital navigators to help with this?
Rachel Riggs
01:11:48
@Christine, yes, it was "LifeEquitable access to what we all take for granted"
Beatriz Vera
01:12:36
Which devices did you chose? tablets, phones, laptops?
Christine Muller
01:13:17
Christine Muller - Will we get a recording of this webinar? It is better than the other one this afternoon!
Becky Payton VA
01:13:49
Is Tyson willing to share their curriculum?
Rachel Riggs
01:14:02
Absolutely, Christine! All resources will be sent in a follow-up email and will be posted on our resources page: https://edtech.worlded.org/tips-for-distance-learning/strategy-session-resources/

Victoria Neff
01:19:47
Such an important point Anson and Kamilla both brought up about impact of digital skills on employee engagement and agency, especially as more and more workplaces adopt digital-enabled workflows and processes. Anson, in terms of policy implications which you mentioned earlier, what are you most energized by?
