Purpose to address the lack of adult digital literacy

Purpose: To address the lack of adult digital literacy

Currently, it is estimated that approximately 29% of Rhode Island adults do not go online.

This means that nearly 3 out of 10 RI adults do not have access to job opportunities.

These Rhode Islanders cannot access the abundance of services moving online (Social Security, TDI, GED, etc.), nor can they access resources that improve quality of life (health/medical information, health care registration, social connections, etc.)

“General Principle: For every one-point increase in the percent of U.S. households with broadband, nearly 300,000 jobs will be added to the economy.” – Brookings Institution Study

Digital literacy and access to information is critical to closing the digital divideand giving all citizens equal opportunity to jobs and connection to healthcare, safety, government, education, community – all contributing to a healthier economy.

Procedures:How will adult digital literacy be accomplished?

Broadband RI Digital Literacy Program

Funded through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (grants $$ to states)

Developed by Broadband Rhode Island (BBRI), a program under the State’s Office of Digital Excellence (ODE)

Works to create new opportunities by expanding broadband infrastructure & use and digital literacy across Rhode Island ACCESS & ADOPTION!

Learner variation universal design for learning

Learner Variation & Universal Design for Learning

Supporting students’ learning in effective ways


Issue p rogram accessibility for all

Issue: Program Accessibility for ALL

Initial curriculum:

  • Instructors could not cover all materials in each session

  • Students needed more help (high risk)

  • Instructors did not understand how to help varied learners

  • Original print curriculum – overwhelming and boring

  • Need to vary formats & design to reach differing learners

    Need for CURRICULUM RE-DESIGN using:

    The Principles of Universal Design for Learning (UDL)


Udl why people learn in different ways

UDL: Why??People learn in different ways.

  • Some are good readers

  • Some learn by listening

  • Some speak English

  • Some may not hear well

  • Some are poor readers

  • Some learn by doing

  • Some speak other languages

  • Some may not see well

Everyone has ways in which they learn best!!


How can we support learning in a different ways

How can we support learning in a different ways?

From single paths…

  • Read, Listen, Write, Speak, Manipulate Calculations,Remember Concepts and Procedures

To multiple paths…

  • Take in information, Express information,Demonstrate understanding of processes,Demonstrate understanding of concepts & ideas,Show what they know in formats that are personally accessible

  • Using…

  • Auditory, Visual, Tactile, Kinesthetic, Multisensory,Demonstration, Manipulatives, Creative Routes, Outcome-Based

Example from instructor training simple ideas to integrate udl

Example from Instructor Training: Simple ideas to integrate UDL

To vary means of REPRESENTATION

Use color to highlight key terms or ideas

Use pictures to reduce language barriers

To vary means of ACTION & EXPRESSION

Encourage verbal restatement by students

Encourage demonstration to peers and to you

To vary means of ENGAGEMENT

Help students relate content to their own lives

Have students share & support each other by working in pairs


Udl applied to increase r elevance for adult learners

UDL applied to increase relevance for adult learners

UDL Step 1: Convert curriculum from “text-heavy” to be more engaging, visually-accessible, easy-to-use.

UDL Step 2: Integrate content on UDL into the Instructor Workshop.

UDL Step 3: Training scenarios representing a range of varied DL learners.

UDL Step 4: Exemplary UDL models that support scenario activities.

UDL Step 5: Vary instructional methods to model diversified instruction & exemplify UDL in practice.

UDL Step 6: UDL resourcesvia Digital Literacy Portal


Technology supports access technology transforms

TECHNOLOGY SUPPORTS ACCESS. TECHNOLOGY TRANSFORMS.

The Role of Technology in Digital Literacy Instruction for ALL

  • Allows manipulation and controlof format

  • Offers alternatives for access

  • Supportsmulti-sensoryinstruction

  • Supports greater personalindependence

  • Use general technology & assistive technology together: recognizing a continuum of access available through technology


Technology udl

Technology & UDL

  • Technology provides tools that support functions to accomplish goals

  • UDL impacts goals, materials, instruction & assessment

Technology is one of the tools in the UDL Toolbox to support the attainment of goals.

A very POWERFUL tool!
