Resources include technology integration and digital skills frameworks, technology adoption checklists, webinars highlighting promising resources and strategies, and technology enhanced lesson plans and guidance.
Each submitted resource has been evaluated by internal subject matter experts from World Education to determine their viability for inclusion, their alignment to one or more technical assistance categories (informed by prior research and the expertise represented in the CREATE Adult Skills Network), and their quality of content, structure, and guidance. The technical assistance categories in this library include:
- Planning technology use;
- Communicating with learners;
- Managing content/instruction;

The Digital Resilience in the American Workforce (DRAW) Project published a series of blogs that consider four areas: Putting Digital Literacy and Digital Resilience into Frame, Digital Digest; The Digital Skills Library, Advancing Access and Digital Equity; Challenges and Solutions, and Digital Digest; and Selecting an Assessment for Digital Literacy. Each blog addresses the question outlined and provides resources to support the challenge.
The research brief explores the integration of digital technologies in adult basic education (ABE) to enhance digital literacy skills and learning outcomes. It highlights the challenges faced by adults in accessing broadband and digital devices. The paper emphasizes the importance of relevant technology use, content creation, sustained partnerships, effective professional development, and equitable access to foster digital literacy. Further research is needed to support effective technology integration in ABE settings.
