You always learn something new – Adult Learning and Education and Life Transitions

blog

| 23 November 2020
| by Regina EBNER

Our lives consist of many transitions – some of them are planned and have a time schedule (think of starting and finishing school, retirement etc.). Others can be planned to a certain extent but are quite traditional and their preparation and consequences are very well known: marriage and children, for example. Then we have events that demand a lot of resilience, such as divorce, illness or job loss. The good news is that adult learning and education can play a very positive role in supporting people in these life transitions.

Con motivo del Día Internacional de la Eliminación de la Violencia contra la Mujer, traemos a un primer plano un material didáctico específico para el sector de la educación de personas adultas. Sin embargo, esta propuesta de trabajo no debería utilizarse única y exclusivamente en los días cercanos a esta efeméride, sino que su tratamiento debería extenderse a lo largo de todo el curso académico en aras a la máxima sensibilización posible.

Realising that technologies, computing capacities, intelligent machines and artificial intelligence in general had become a significant and unavoidable part od teaching and learning in modern age, it struck me that I knew so little about the new phenomenon. The strange was the fact that I used and relied on artificial intelligence a lot without even realising it. The realisation set me on the way of exploring the world of the very phenomenon, its advantages and disadvantages, impact and all the possibilities it offers in education.

Although numeracy has always been an essential element in basic skills training programs, it is often not in the forefront for basic skills policies and practice. The current collection of open educational resources (OERs) and the respective online course (MOOC) aim to present a starting point for policy-makers, staff of educational institutions and other partners having a stake in implementing the European Council’s recommendation on Upskilling Pathways.

The current COVID-19 crisis has brought deep disruption at global level and in most realms of life. The crisis has revealed how important basic skills are in terms of helping people cope and adapt to unexpected change, and it has also abundantly shown we were unprepared. As is very often the case, the most vulnerable groups have suffered the most. People without a functional level of literacy, numeracy and digital skills found themselves unable to access the advice from health authorities or to properly evaluate the veracity of other types of information they got, much of which did not come from authoritative sources.
