Summary

Over 36 million—1 in 6—adult Americans lack the basic skills they need for a postsecondary education or better employment opportunities, yet adult basic education programs serve only ~4 million people annually, leaving over 32 million un- or under-served. Mobile technologies have become an integral part of life but they have not yet been adequately integrated into adult education and career pathways training programs. This panel will bring together diverse expertise from government, academia and industry to envision revolutionary ways for mobile technologies to cost-effectively increase access to, persistence in, progress through and completion of adult education and workplace programs.
