Internet Matters: Let’s Go Digital
The world has been operating a lot online and while adults have been in this world longer, the internet is something they need to catch up on. With the help of youth volunteers, downloadable workbooks, and other resources, Literacy Canada will be teaching adults what the internet is so they can navigate it better and more safely.
Literacy Encyclopedia Skills Hub
Literacy Encyclopedia also has an online platform where adult learners can create their accounts and study the workbooks at their time. It’s built through simple language and beginner-friendly design so it’s easy to navigate and appeals to internet newbies.
You can also have your program workbooks delivered using the Skills Nook if you’re more comfortable learning through printouts. Soon enough, the platform will integrate a Teachers’ Hub for more interactive learning. Through this feature, teachers can set up and conduct online classes.
Skills for Work
This program offers free workbooks and workshops meant to teach learners the skills needed to be employable. While the other programs focus on the hard skills, this focuses on the soft skills. It helps learners build desirable workplace attitudes and skills such as Task and Time Management, Teamwork, Answerability, Effective Stress Management, and Communication, among others.
