VALRC: Lessons from the Field with Ed Sadler: Teaching Digital Literacy to Immigrants

January 18 @ 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm

The Blue Ridge Literacy organization provides many services to its learners. One among them is delivering comprehensive digital literacy instruction, which encompasses basic computer operation, internet basics, using email, and basic Windows operating system use. Digital literacy class instruction is instructor-led and provided in person. The primary audience and participants are immigrants who desire to learn computer skills while, in many cases, concurrently learning English. All of the lessons are taken from our Northstar Digital Literacy partner-provided syllabus and presented and applied in every class.

In this webinar, Ed Sadler will share how Blue Ridge Literacy’s digital literacy classes are structured and how they have been successful, even when working with learners who often arrive with limited English proficiency and no past experience using computers. He will focus on the unique manner in which the digital literacy material is presented and demonstrated to help learners understand the concepts.
