Adult basic education in the age of new literacies. New literacies and digital epistemologies, v. 43.
Erik Jacobson. New York: Peter Lang, 2012.

This book looks at ways that adult basic education has been influenced by changes in technology, and what needs to happen for learners and teachers to take full advantage of newly developing resources. It begins with an examination of how digital technology may or may not be affecting the ways adult basic education students engage in learning, including research on the impact of technology use. It then reviews best practices for instruction that supports learners’ explorations of new literacies. It also looks at models of professional development for ABE instructors. How technology policy is reshaping the field of adult basic education is addressed along with the larger socioeconomic context for adult basic education.
