Students in adult literacy education, including basic and secondary education and English for speakers of other languages (ESOL), are increasingly using computers to write, find information, publish their writings, communicate by e-mail, learn basic skills, and for other purposes. In this chapter the focus is on computers, the Internet (including the World Wide Web), and, to a lesser extent, broadcast and recorded video technologies. Once separate electronic media, computers, the Internet, television, radio, and audio and video recordings are becoming an integrated, digital multimedium delivered now through the computer and soon by digital television broadcast. The capacity for an integrated and interactive electronic learning medium of hypertext, still and moving images, and sound to be delivered at high speed to home, work, or learning center anytime, almost anywhere, in real and asynchronous time, opens a new era of learning and teaching possibilities for adult literacy education. (Contains 3 notes and 17 resources.) [Chapter 8 in: Annual Review of Adult Learning and Literacy. Volume 1; copublished with Jossey-Bass, Inc.; see ED436673.]
