Has adult education been left behind by OER? Adult learners stand to benefit more than most from low-cost resources; federal and state funding for adult education lags behind K-12 and Higher Ed by a factor of 10. The team behind Power in Numbers, the ongoing initiative from the U.S. Department of Education's Office of Career, Technical, and Adult Education presents the findings from their research report on the demand and unmet needs of the adult market for OER. Focusing on mathematics, and teaming up with a series of experts across adult learning theory, mathematics, and OER, the team has explored why the gap exists and how we can bridge it.
