Recap of Twitter Town Hall at COABE

Check out @NCLAdvocacy on Twitter for the Question and Answer period of the Twitter Town Hall with Assistant Secretary Brenda Dann-Messier and Division of Adult Education and Literacy Director Cheryl Keenan. Below are two hot topics discussed:

PIAAC:

Q: What is OVAE’s plan about PIAAC, what are you going to do? Does OVAE have plans to help bring media attention to the PIAAC release?

A: PIAAC release is great chance to spotlight adult education issues. OVAE is developing a framework for a bold plan to transform adult education nationwide.

Technology:

Q: Adult Ed through technology is great but how and with who?

A: [We are] Partnering with the Department of Energy and others to move it forward. A good model is Project IDEAL’s training of distance education teachers. We are also looking at digital badges, certifications issued to participators in online communities and courses, and how they can provide professional recognition. Share your best practices with OVAE!
