This case study was conducted to consider digital literacy programs for lower literate adults in Minnesota. Two programs were considered, the Northstar Digital Literacy Program, and the Learner Web system. Both are being used at regional sites in Minnesota to target digital competency and literacy education for adults. This paper provides a brief environmental scan of challenges and possibilities for this emerging area of adult education and emphasis is placed on digital literacy teaching and learning; considering assumptions educators might make about their students access to, and knowledge of, technology use; how technology could be further integrated into literacy education; and, on assessments and higher level technology competence.
