The readings this week focused on how learning in the Digital Age can affect adults by the impact technology can have and the ways in which adult learners navigate the challenges associated with learning in this context. There was also a presentation on how we as educators can assist adult learners to become a critical consumer of information with all of the misinformation available.
With the increasing demand for online learning that fits the adult learners lifestyle, what are some areas that technology has been a challenge for you and how do you negotiate these challenges? What impact do you find that it has on your ability to learn? Bring into this discussion examples, both good and bad, on the challenges you have faced with regards to technology both in your everyday life and learning.
