Workforce Literacy Instruction and Electronic Writing: A Study (2003)

The 21st century workforce demands an array of skills which includes the ability to effectively use some form of technology. This may require educators to rethink approaches to literacy instruction in adult literacy programs.

This article outlines a study done by three Acadia University researchers at the Annapolis Valley Work Centre in Nova Scotia. The study was carried out to increase understanding of the experience of participants in workforce literacy programs; to assess the impact of an instructional protocol (developed to teach three specific writing strategies) on the quality of writing; and to examine changes in participant attitudes toward writing with computers.
