WEBINAR: Technology Testing for Adult Learning and Employment: Learning from Innovation in the Field

Over the past year, the EdTech Center has been field testing seven education and workforce development technologies funded by the Employment Technology Fund: Care Academy, Cell-Ed, Nepris, Northstar Digital Literacy Assessment, PAIRIN, Signal Vine, and SkillSmart. Our work, supported by Walmart, has shed light on the affordances of the tools and characteristics of the use scenarios that support persistence and learner success.

We shared these findings in this webinar and featured stories of end-users and learners who characterize the field testing participants that we met along the way. Additionally, you can hear from industry experts, key field test implementers, and developers who responded to the findings and answer many of your questions.
