Adult Numeracy Back in the House

I've been away for a while but back in business (PhD thesis submitted!). The clip below is useful for adult educators teaching numeracy. Someone else edited it, so some key points have been cut that would have rounded it out - and made it epic. So its not epic, but it does make some good points I think.


In anticipation of some kickback - note that OECD study that explored strategy use, utilised a methodology to ask learners, not teachers what strategies they were taught. Of course all the teachers said they promoted elaboration strategies, but the learners are a better indicator in this case.
