Multitasking is a way of life for them, staying connected is essential and there is zero tolerance for delays. Modern literacy includes not only text but also image and screen literacy – it involves navigating information and assembling knowledge from fragments (Oblinger; Jones and Pritchard)
today s adult learner
Today’s Adult Learner
