31st Annual Technology and Adult Education Conference
The Office of Adult Education in collaboration with Temple University's Center for Community Partnerships, invites you to submit a proposal to present at the 31st Annual Technology and Adult Education Conference. The theme for the conference is "Keep It Real: Teaching Tech Skills for Work and Everyday". This one-day conference will be held May 10, 2019 on Temple University’s main campus in Philadelphia, PA from 9:00 am to 3:30 pm.

The goal of the Technology and Adult Education Conference is to equip practitioners with tools to effectively support adults and opportunity youth (age 16 and up) to be successful in high school equivalency testing, English language acquisition, entry into post-secondary education and training, and securing family-sustaining jobs.
The conference will be attended by a variety of adult education practitioners from a wide range of adult education organizations across the region; including Executive Directors, Coordinators, Teachers, Case Managers/Learning Coaches and Volunteers.

Technology is a powerful tool in our work and everyday lives. We use technology to apply for social services, pay bills, apply for jobs, and much more. This conference will focus on providing adult educators with tools and strategies for teaching technology. Our theme "Keep it Real: Teaching Tech Skills for Work and Everyday," invites adult educators to think about creative, student-centered and effective teaching strategies to incorporate technology into the classroom to support learners’ knowledge of and comfort with technology in daily life and for work. Adult educators can make sure their learners are prepared to thrive in the modern world by integrating these technology skills into their instruction.

We are seeking proposals for two kinds of presentations:

*70-minute dynamic, practice-based Presentations
-Workshops should be focused on integrating technology into adult literacy instruction, planning, services, and administration.
-Presentations should align with the theme "Keep It Real: Teaching Tech Skills for Work and Everyday."
-Presentations should be highly interactive, participant- centered, and feature hands-on technology exploration.

*Poster session
-Large format poster to graphically highlight your work in integrating technology into your adult education classroom.
-Posters should align with the theme "Keep It Real: Teaching Tech Skills for Work and Everyday."
-Posters should be visually appealing, engaging, well organized, and demonstrate knowledge of integrating technology into adult education.
-Posters will be displayed during the poster session of the conference.

We look forward to receiving your proposal!

Philadelphia Workforce Education Standards
The Philadelphia Workforce Standards for Adult Education Teachers/Tutors (The Standards) were developed to guide teacher/tutor practice with the intent to improve the quality of instruction and infuse workforce literacy into adult education. The Standards charge teachers/tutors with the task of helping learners develop necessary skills needed to succeed in the 21st-century workplace.When considering your own strategies for working with adult learners, the Standards are a helpful tool to integrate into your own lessons through modeling.

Please refer to the Standards and use them as a guide while planning your session. Standards may be viewed at ow.ly/Jh5lJ.

Identify the Workforce Education Standard(s) you will model in your session. Please describe how you will model them.
