The Adult Education and Family Literacy Special Interest Group (AEFL-SIG) advocates improved literacy and language education for adults and their families, by disseminating relevant research and practice information regarding educational program development and instruction to Adult Education and Family Literacy practitioners.

Call for Proposal (s):

The panel presentation for The Adult Education and Family Literacy Special Interest Group (AEFL-SIG) provides a forum for sharing information about specific areas of interest among reading and literacy professionals for the International Reading Association (IRA) Annual Convention. 

For 2013, the (AEFL-SIG) panel presentation would like to focus on the utilization of Social Media such as You Tube, Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn and/or Pinterest in Adult Education, Family Literacy and ESOL programs for IRA's 58th Annual Convention in San Antonio, April 2013.

  • Are you using Social Media to provide instruction to adult learners (e.g. ABE, Family Literacy and/or ESOL?)
  • Are you implementing research-based techniques in your ABE, ESOL, and/or Family Literacy program that includes Social Media applications such as YouTube, Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn and/or Pinterest?
  • Are elements of your Adult Basic and Literacy Education classroom mirroring the 21st century classroom that include opportunities for adult learners to be critical thinkers, problem solvers, good communicators and collaborators using Social Media?
  • Are you currently conducting research that includes Social Media applications that are engaging and interactive to the Adult Learner (e.g ABE, Family Literacy and/or ESOL) or will you be sometime in the near future?
If you answered yes to one or more of these questions, The International Reading Association (IRA), Adult Education and Family Literacy Special Interest Group (AEFL-SIG), encourages you to submit a proposal.  The DEADLINE for proposal submission is Thursday, August 2, 2012, 11:59 p.m. (E.S.T).
