This resource has been designed to support the use of digital technology in Literacy and Basic Skills (LBS) programs within the context of the Ontario Adult Literacy Curriculum Framework (OALCF). It features two theme areas: work using digital technology, and managing money using digital technology.

The resource is housed on the AlphaPlus server, where it is available for download in four PDFs.

The first file offers an introduction, explaining how the resource package is organized and how the material relates to the OALCF.

The second PDF offers sample tasks and learning activities related to work using digital technology. The tasks range from relatively simple ones, like entering data into a digital device, to more complicated ones, like using digital templates to create a promotional flyer.

The third file focuses on tasks related to managing money, including using a debit card; shopping online; making a budget and tracking expenses digitally; and paying bills online.

For each task in both the second and third files, there are suggested learning outcomes and activities.

The fourth PDF offers a sample of instructional resources that are available online. The resources are divided into interactive ones, which offer opportunities for learning online, and printable ones like workbooks or tutorials available in PDF format for downloading or printing. Access to all the resources is free of charge. In each section, Canadian resources are identified with a flag icon.

AlphaPlus is a provincially-funded Ontario organization that provides expertise to support adult educators.
