Norman Davies Group, logoAdult Student Center
image, Norman Davies Group"Going to college can be a daunting experience even for the best-prepared student. It involves a major life change as young students leave home and learn to survive in a new social environment. That's why there are so many resources for high school students and their parents to help them find and apply to colleges, get financial aid, and prepare them for their new lives.

For the adult student, many years removed from the academic environment, going to college represents just as big a challenge. The adult student may not have to leave home--in fact, many are turning to distance-learning programs taken in the comfort of their own homes--but the demands of college require significant changes in their personal and family lifestyles. And there are many differences in the adult student's college experience.

* Adult students look for more detailed information on college programs and admissions requirements in a much narrower geographic range.
* We need more flexible programs and support in juggling personal commitments.
* We are much more isolated as we try to acquire new skills.
* We often have to cope with course curricula, grading systems and textbooks geared for students just out of high school.
* We have to relearn, or unlearn, study habits.

There are few resources designed to help adults through this experience. While the Norman Davies Group doesn't pretend to have the answers to these issues, we believe that by providing a forum for adult students, we will be able to help each other. If you're thinking about going back to school, or if you're already in school, we hope you'll join us." ... more
NUDC logo
"The National Universities Degree Consortium (NUDC) is a nationwide collaborative of higher education institutions, offering fully accredited courses and degree programs, delivered in flexible formats to nontraditional students.

Through NUDC, you can choose from a wide array of courses offered by member institutions to complete your degree requirements.

Distance education fills a critical niche for individuals who do not otherwise have access to institutions of higher education. Unhampered by geography, individual schedules, weather, or limiting class-size requirements, courses offered via a variety of distance education technologies have flexibility in meeting the needs of people whom universities have trouble reaching with traditional delivery systems.

The first priority in distance education is academic excellence. When you register for a course, you should expect equivalent content and opportunity for learning. When you complete a course, your grade is entered on a transcript like on-campus university courses. To ensure excellence, distance education course work involves a commitment by instructors and students to academic quality. Distance education courses require individual motivation, regular communication and a serious approach to learning." ... more
WorldWideLearn.com logoWorldWideLearn
Image WorldWideLearn.com"A simple query on a search engine for "online courses" was the starting point for WorldWideLearn.com. At that time, there really wasn't a centralized directory of quality e-learning providers. That was in 1998, when there were almost no directories or portals specializing in just online education. Searching for and finding relevant online learning resources proved to be time-consuming and frustrating. WorldWideLearn.com wanted to change that.

The site's founders began to develop a directory of e-learning courses and education resources to provide results for that first, simple query. The WorldWideLearn.com directory site was formally launched in May of 1999. Since then, the site has been honored with numerous prestigious awards. Most recently, the Better Business Bureau has recognized WorldWideLearn.com as meeting their standards of good business.

WorldWideLearn.com is members of the American Library Association and is proud to support organizations dedicated to encouraging education." ... more
InnovativeLearning.com logo
InnovativeLearning"InnovativeLearning.com is developed by Richard Culatta with contributions from learning leaders in k-12, higher ed, and corporate learning environments. The site focuses on best practices for teaching and learning as well as technology integration. The concepts on the site are built on the foundation that in order to have effective learning - online learning or in the classroom - it is as important to connect learners with other learners as it is to connect learners with content

Instructional Technology
Effective use of educational technology is vital to solving many of our current educational challenges. This section of Innovative Learning provides resources to help teachers learn about educational technology tools that can improve teaching and learning.

While effective learning should be the driving force behind technology integration, it is important to keep up with technology advances in order to recognize potential solutions. Tools are abundant, but we must be able to recognize how to leverage their capabilities (or afforddances) in order to improve the learning experience.

Educational Games
Innovative Learning, in partnership with Third Rail Games, believes that learning should be fun. No, that's an understatement - we believe that learning should be so engaging that you should have to pry it out of a kid's hands when it's time for bed just like... well, a game! Which is why we believe that serious games have huge untapped potential for learning.

Social Learning
Social learning theory is the idea that people learn most effectively when they interact with other learners about a given topic. Educational psychologists refer to this as social constructivism. Recent credibility for this theory comes from a study by Dr. Richard J. Light (Harvard School of Education) that identify factors that lead to success for college students. According to Dr. Light, the strongest determinant of students’ success in college—even more than the details of their instructors’ teaching styles—is their ability to form or participate in small study groups. Students who studied in groups, even only once a week, were more engaged in their studies, were better prepared for class, and learned significantly more than students who worked on their own." ... more

Assistive Technology Training
US Learning Tools
PARI logo"These webpages provide homework toolkits for students and information about assistive technology for students as well as their parents, teachers and anyone interested in supporting students' achievement using assistive technology.

Information for Students
- We all know that technology can help us. Most students in school and adults use technology in some form. Almost all of us have e-mail. Almost everyone accesses the Internet, often on a daily basis. Every student has used a word processor to create documents.
- For students who have challenges in learning or coping in school, technology can make an even greater difference! You may have good intelligence, and a good cognitive level. You may be able to think on a much higher level, and a much more complex level, then the work you produce in school. Many students are very bright, and can learn and think at a much higher level than what their functional performance in school indicates.
- If you are the kind of student who can tell and dictate a much better story than you can write, this applies to you!
- If you can listen to an audio book, hear someone talking, watch a video, and learn and retain the information far better than reading words on a page, then this also applies to you!
- If you feel better about the work that you produce on paper, when using a computer and multimedia, then the work you produce by hand writing on a piece of paper, then this applies to you!

Information for Educational teams and parents
- Assistive technology for special education students is changing rapidly.
- Regular and assistive technology tools are developing at an accelerated pace, and boundaries between what has typically been considered 'assistive' and'regular' technology are becoming increasingly blurred.
- Regular, mainstream technology (and some of the more specialized technology) is becoming more affordable and in many cases completely free effective and useful to people with special needs and simplified and intuitive in it's user interface and function!" ... more
