ACT Foundation presented research at the American Education Research Association (AERA) Annual Meeting in Washington, D.C. in April 2016. Three pieces were shared during the session, and included an examination of high school working learners, a literature review of informal learning, and a catalog of datasets around working learners.
What is a National Learning Economy?
Most Americans today are working learners—those actively engaged in working and learning in order to attain greater economic security and overall life satisfaction. ACT Foundation works to provide these individuals with improved access to relevant learning opportunities, better connections to employers, and more attainable career paths, all of which serve to strengthen performance.
The result? A nation engaged in realizing potential, where people are valued for their ability to perform. We call it a National Learning Economy.
