Back to the Future
In the 30 years since the then Mayor’s Commission on Literacy (now Office of Adult Education) hosted the first
Technology and Adult Education Conference, technology use in education has gone through many changes, and in many, it has stayed the same.
Join us as we head back to the future, to explore how technology in adult education has evolved in the 30 years since the first Technology and Adult Education Conference. Reflect on how far we have come, think about where we are now, and look forward to what is ahead in the integration of technology into our work.

About the Technology and Adult Education Conference
The Technology and Adult Education Conference is presented by the Office of Adult Education, in collaboration with Temple University’s. Adult learners require educational opportunities that help fulfill a variety of personal and professional goals. These goals can be achieved by using technology to expand access and increase opportunities for learners and the practitioners that serve them. Technology is a powerful tool that can be used to promote learner independence, enable flexible delivery of instruction, express creativity, and make learning more enjoyable.
