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.
