Adult Learning

Digital Promise is working to improve digital learning opportunities for low-skilled, under-served adults in the United States. We connect entrepreneurs, educators, and researchers to support and advance the development and use of educational technology that expands career pathways and improves the quality of life for these learners.

An estimated 36 million adult learners in the U.S. lack the basic math, language, and digital literacy skills necessary to find well-paying jobs and to navigate public and social systems. Technology as a learning tool increases access to education, provides support and scaffolding, and offers the personalized learning pathways these learners need to advance in their careers and life.
