Literacy, culture, and development : becoming literate in Morocco by Daniel A Wagner( Book )

13 editions published between 1993 and 1994 in English and held by 302 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Literacy is thought to be one of the primary cultural transmitters of information and beliefs within any society where it exists. Yet, when considered as a social phenomenon, literacy is remarkably difficult to define, because its functions, meanings, and methods of learning vary from one cultural group to the next. This book compares and contrasts our understanding of literacy and its acquisition and retention. It addresses major debates in education policy today, such as the importance of "mother-tongue" literacy programs, the notion of literacy "relapse," and the concept of educational poverty. The author focuses on Moroccan children whose parents are unschooled, whose language is often different from that used in the classroom, and whose first instruction often involves rote religious instruction

What makes workers learn : the role of incentives in workplace education and training by National Center on Adult Literacy( Book )

8 editions published between 1993 and 1995 in English and held by 212 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book looks at what makes adults participate in education and training, particularly in relation to work. It considers three kinds of incentives: to provide education and training, to accept learning opportunities, and to learn effectively. An introduction (Hirsch, Wagner) describes three potential conflicts that need to be resolved to bring the three kinds of incentives into closer harmony. The remainder of the book consists of 12 chapters that discuss 6 aspects of adult learning incentives. The chapters are revisions of papers presented at a roundtable. Section I contains two papers discussing financial incentives: "Adult Learning and Work: Finance, Incentives, and Certification" (Ryan) and "Do Most Employers and Workers Underinvest in Training and Learning on the Job?" (Bishop). The two chapters in Section II focus on legal incentives: "Worker Access to Vocational Training: A Legal Approach" (Luttringer) and "Legal Incentives and the New Workforce" (Noyelle, Hirsch). Section III consists of two chapters on work organization incentives: "Organizational Change and Adult Learning" (Hirschhorn) and "Workplace Learning in Changing Environments: A Researcher/Practitioner's Viewpoint" (Ford). Section IV on incentives and learning methods includes the following: "Learning at and through the Workplace: A Review of Participation and Adult Learning Theory" (Rubenson, Schutze) and "Functional Context Education for Schoolplaces and Workplaces" (Sticht). The two chapters in Section V address literacy and basic skills: "Workplace Literacy Programs: Organization and Incentives" (Mikulecky) and "Workplace Basic Skills Programs in the United Kingdom: Why So Few?" (Wells). The final section contains two chapters on comparing industrialized and developing nations: "Incentives for Adult Learning in Developing Countries: Lessons and Comparisons" (Puchner) and "Adult Learning under Conditions of Hardship: Evidence from Developing and Developed Countries" (Stromquist). Contains 244 references. (YLB)

New technologies for literacy and adult education : a global perspective by Daniel A Wagner( Book )

5 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 92 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

New technology can provide powerful new tools for enriching the lives of poor people and communities in unprecedented ways. At least that was the view of the G8 Digital Opportunities Task Force in 2001, a view that is upheld and further explored in this book. With an estimated 850 million illiterate people in the world today, this book explores how new information and communication technology (ICT) supports basic literacy and the information skills crucial for economic and social development. Published as a contribution towards the United Nations Literacy Decade (2003-2012), the volume analyzes two interconnected approaches to using ICT to support adult literacy and basic education. The first views ICT primarily as a set of instructional tools to help people acquire the skills associated with traditional notions of literacy. The second treats the relationship between literacy, technology and development in a more integral way.--Publisher's description
