Adult Education and Lifelong Learning Blogs


#1

This link was shared with me of top newsfeeds and blogs about adult education. I posted their top 21 list below. Note to click the site website link and not the big blue title. I know of few of these - ELM, LLLPlatform, John Field, ALA - but most I have never heard of. I hadn’t thought of reaching out to reddit before - but it certainly is a good idea to connect to folks there!

Any other ones you’d suggest?

I’d also like to point out two more from folks that are in our community or have reached out before:

@David_Rosen has a blog where he regularly posts, a quote from a previous discussion with him:

"For those who are interested in adult basic education, including English for immigrants, or in non-formal education in libraries, take a look at my blog, Adult Literacy Education https://davidjrosen.wordpress.com/ Here’s a list of recent articles. I have bolded three that I think may be of special interest to this community. Let me know what you think.

After Career Preparation Mastery, Getting through the Digital Gauntlet to a Job Interview

Formative Assessment Practices of a Teacher of Occupation-related Basic Math in an Integrated Education Program

What can we learn about Career Preparation from Janesville Wisconsin?

Building a Community of Learning Navigators in a Public Library

Mayday! Mayday! Mayday! Adult Education Needed ASAP!
