027 The Importance of Adult Education and Digital Literacy with Rebecca Eller-Molitas

Season 1, Ep. 27

HOT TOPIC: Evolution of Learning


This week's episode of the EdTech Speaks podcast welcomes Rebecca Eller-Molitas, Adult Education Consultant, speaker, trainer, and writer.


Rebecca began her adult education career overseas as an ESL teacher in Japan. Since returning to the US, she has been fortunate to teach and lead in the nonprofit and educational community with roles in all areas of adult learning including ABE/ASE, GED, ESL, Digital Literacy, teacher training, and Transitions. Approaching adult basic education with an intention to understand its various parts has given her deep insight into how silos within the system can come together - from programs, to workforce, to funding.


During the interview, Rebecca leaves us a thought-provoking reminder when she says, "Adult Education is a bigger need in the US than most people realize. Many adults still lack basic literacy and numeracy skills, and this impacts all areas of society from health to employment to a child's success in school."

We hope you will, too!Phil is the Founder of the Master of Business Leadership (MBL) executive coaching program. For the past 21 years, he has been helping executives and their organizations achieve remarkable results through Emotional Intelligence. There are MBL alumni in the US, Canada, UK, Europe, Japan, Africa, Australia, the Middle East and Saudi Arabia.He leaves us with a solid piece of advice when he says, "Invest In Yourself. The best advice I can give you and your organization is to take the leap of faith of investing in yourself. The development of your emotional intelligence will ensure your personal, business, and career success. An organization’s profitability and success are a reflection of its level of emotional intelligence. Without an ongoing investment in the development of its emotional intelligence, it will eventually collapse. The biggest challenge organizations face is in changing their people, not technology. Advancing the habits, mindset, and behavior in order to embrace change and technology can take years."Learn more and connect with Phil here:https://linktr.ee/PhilJohnsonhttps://www.linkedin.com/in/philipjpjohnson/ Reach out to learn more: https://calendly.com/mblcoach/chat-with-phil"Getting your MBL is the best investment you could ever make!" https://lnkd.in/ehKyeeEJoanne Moretti, CRO Fictiv / Board Member / Angel Dallas, Texas“Applying the MBL principles has changed my life, professionally and personally.”https://lnkd.in/eNE9k59Kimberly Kaminski, MBL Global Marketing Executive, Amplitude San Francisco, California"Master of Business Leadership program has contributed remarkably to revenue growth and career advancement."Alessandro Fasan, MSEE, MBA, MBL VP Sales CEVA Inc.
