Integrating Technology in Learning

World Education helps educators to tap the potential of existing and emerging technologies to enhance their teaching and help students reach their goals faster. To that end, we design and offer professional development workshops, online courses, mobile apps, technical assistance, websites, and publications for educators on technology.

In addition to the use of technology in the classroom, computer applications and games, mobile learning solutions, and social media can accelerate learning as supplements to classroom work. Because adult basic education programs typically only offer 6-12 hours of instruction a week, adult learners—who juggle work, family and study responsibilities—can benefit greatly from effective self-study solutions offered by technology.

Visit World Education's EdTech Center, an online resource that works to meet the evolving education and training needs of under-educated adults and youth through high-quality, innovative services aimed at increasing local staff skills and program capacity. The EdTech Center supports educators and local partners in the integration of digital technologies into instruction, promotes digital literacy and access to accelerate learning, college and career readiness, and offers mobile and online learning opportunities.
