The aim of this resource is 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). The material is based on three theme areas: managing health using digital technology; managing learning using digital technology; and sharing and collaborating using digital technologies.

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

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

The second file offers six health-related tasks of varying levels of difficulty, from learning how the body works to creating a health research database.

The third file includes 12 tasks related to learning. They range from learning about adult learning or finding an online class, which are considered level 1 tasks, to level 2 and 3 tasks like creating a blog, registering for an online course, or creating a photo story.

The fourth contains five tasks: identifying community resources; researching community resources; creating a resources map; creating a resources blog; and creating a resources photo story. Each is identified as level 1, 2, or 3 in terms of difficulty.

For each task in the second, third and fourth files, there are suggested learning outcomes and activities, along with extensive practitioner notes.

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