Engaging Learners in Ireland
John Stewart, National Adult Literacy Coordinator, National Adult Literacy Agency (NALA)
NALA’s approach to distance learning has been recognized as one of the top 16 European case studies by the European Union. Their free Distance Learning Service gives learners control over what and when they learn, by themselves, online or on the phone with one of 160 tutors from 77 adult literacy centres. John will describe the online learning portal www.writeon.ie and telephone tutor support. He will also briefly discuss their use of TV programs to raise awareness and engage learners in literacy and numeracy development and their support of thematic learning e.g. financial literacy (www.makingcents.ie) and family learning (www.helpmykidlearn.ie).
