Incorporating technology into the classroom is important and I agree with your assessment that some adult learners “may need encouragement to utilize technology correctly.” While I am new to adult education, my experience in previous employment has been that many adults still struggle with technology. Smartphones have allowed more people the opportunity to interact with various programs and apps, but I wonder how computer literate they are. I may be pleasantly surprised at the proficiency of some of the adults and I look forward to the possibility of learning something new. Until I teach my first class, I will listen and learn from the more experienced educators and continually explore ways I can integrate technology in the classroom.
