Pew data suggests adult learners lacking in digital skills - Roger Riddell, Education Dive

A Pew Research Center report titled "Digital Readiness Gaps" suggests many adults aren't prepared to use the digital tools necessary for online learning. According to eCampus News, 33% of adults are reluctant when it comes to their ability to use computers and other electronic devices, 31% are "cautious clickers" who are confident in their abilities but unlikely to pursue learning opportunities on- or offline, and 14% are unprepared for online learning all together. When it comes to those who are prepared, only 17% are confident in their digital skills, and 40% of that group suggested the majority of their learning occurs online. http://www.educationdive.com/news/pew-study-adult-learners-digital-skills-online-learning/439634/
