Summary
"This book provides hard facts on a topic that is all too often clouded by rhetoric as it describes the different ways in which adults interact with ICTs for learning at home, work and in the wider community. Written by acknowledged experts in the field, the valuable research findings will spark fresh debate." "Adult Learning in the Digital Age is based on one of the first large-scale academic research projects in the area. Its rich and detailed findings are used to generate practical recommendations for policy-makers, practitioners and future researchers interested in the use of new technology and the development of the information society."--Jacket
