The Mayor’s Commission on Literacy, in collaboration with Temple University’s Center for Social Policy and Community Development, invites you to attend the 28th Annual Technology and Adult Education Conference, to be held May 13, 2016, on Temple University’s main campus in Philadelphia, PA.

The ultimate goal of the 28th Annual Technology and Adult Education Conference is to ensure that adults and out-of-school youth age 16 and up are prepared to succeed in high school equivalency testing, acquisition of English as a Second Language, entry into post-secondary education and training, and family-sustaining jobs.

Adult learners today require educational opportunities that help fulfill a wide variety of technology, social, educational, and workforce goals. These goals can be achieved through connected learning, an approach to teaching and learning that promotes the use of technology to connect adult learners to peers, interests, academic, and workforce opportunities.

The 28th Annual Technology and Adult Education Conference will showcase trends and opportunities for facilitating connected learning in adult education. Including hearing from keynote speaker, Shlomy Kattan, Senior Director of the Barbara Bush Foundation Adult Literacy XPRIZE. As a former educator, academic, EdTech entrepreneur, and strategy consultant with more than 15 years of experience in both eLearning and traditional education, Dr. Kattan brings a unique ability to bridge the gaps among educational practice, research, technology, and industry.
