Technology and Literacy Report
Advanced Education and Labour
The Technology and Literacy Survey was undertaken in January, 1996 by the Provincial Literacy Coordinators of the Department of Advanced Education and Labour with the assistance of the Literacy Coordinators of the New Brunswick Community Colleges.
The purpose of the survey was to help identify what skills and knowledge existed in the area of technology amongst those who provide training and those who receive training in adult literacy. The survey also attempted to obtain information that could help appraise the level of interest for technology in delivering community-based literacy programs and identify barriers that inhibit its utilization.
The results of the survey conducted with the Anglophone linguistic group are tabulated in this English version. A provincial report section contains the combined results of both the Anglophone and Francophone linguistic groups.
The findings should help give a sense of direction and vision to those who are charged with developing and implementing action plans that would integrate technology into adult literacy programs.
We wish to thank all those who gave of their precious time to contribute to the success of this survey by either providing information, compiling results or managing the process.
