In January 2009,
the Mayor's Office of Adult Education (MOAE) invited members of NYC's adult
education community to participate in its first Adult Education Computer and
Internet Survey. Using feedback from colleagues, MOAE developed targeted
versions of the same survey for adult learners, teachers, and program managers.
Over 3,000 adult
learners, teachers, and program managers participated in the survey. They
represent a variety of NYC adult education partners: Brooklyn Public Library,
New York Public Library, Queens Library, City University of New York (CUNY),
Human Resources Administration (HRA), Office of Adult and Continuing Education
at the NYC Department of Education, community-based organizations funded through
the Department for Youth and Community Development (DYCD), as well as numerous
other organizations providing adult education services.
provides a snapshot of how adult education programs across the City use
computers and the internet. MOAE will use the findings to inform the City's
technology and digital literacy agenda going forward.
