Using the Internet as a resource is absolutely necessary in today's information-based society. However, finding exactly the right material from a reputable among the millions of pages available is often quite difficult.
A major issue in adult education is defining the area in which you will work. For example, some majors choose to work in adult literacy or GED programs. Others may choose to teach in a vocational or technical skill area. Still others may work in human resource development for business, industry, or government.
A related issue is finding materials and resources you can use as you prepare to become a professional educator for adult students. Your task is to locate and share 5 high quality websites or web-based articles related to your specific area of focus. You may also recommend audio or video materials related to any area relevant to teachers of adults. Go to the following links for examples of materials already recommended: | Websites | Readings | Videos |
