Detail

This review is to develop a sound understanding of:

  • the existing evidence on the value of technology to the adult basic skills provision
  • the potential target populations within the adult learner community, including an understanding of their current access to and use of technology

To meet these aims, 2 strands of research and analysis were undertaken, these were:

  • a systematic review of research
  • a data review on the key populations of interest

The review was an update of an earlier review by Carole Torgerson (2004) on effective teaching in adult literacy and numeracy.
