Helping ESL Students with Life Online - Digital Literacy in Adult Ed
As we teach, learn, work, and interact more online and with our devices, it has become increasingly apparent that there is a gap in the digital literacy skills of many of our adult learners. These skills have become crucial not only in navigating the day-to-day, but also in achieving success academically and in the workplace. This webinar will focus on activities for adult ESL students to help develop essential digital literacy skills in areas such as privacy and security, managing your digital footprint, online etiquette, and tips for online or hybrid classes. Using examples from the new edition of Stand Out, we will discuss how to seamlessly incorporate digital literacy skills into ESL instruction.
