Concurrent Session 1
Session Description

The presentation includes an investigation on African American adult learners’ perceptions of utilizing Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) as well as how the use of ICTs enhances adult learners’ attitudes and motivation to learn in various learning environments. Integrating technology into teaching and learning has been a trend in the twenty-first century. Appropriate use of technology enhances cognitive student learning outcomes. It is necessary to identify the effectiveness of using technology for African-American adult learners and the challenges that have been encountered by the faculty and students in continuing education. This session will provide an overview of different types of ICTs. Participants will gain an understanding of the methods of applying ICTs and curriculum/instructional design issues among adult learners, especially for the minority students in the credit program.
