It is amazing to see the creative ideas that adult education professionals are utilizing to stay connected with their learners.

Texting has become a primary method of communication. Professionals say texts should be short and should focus on “checking-in” or “practice.” One great idea is to text a short sentence or two using incorrect grammar. Have the student respond with the same message after correcting the grammatical errors. Another suggestion is to text vocabulary words or terms to students.
