Our guest for four segments is David J. Rosen, Founder, Newsome Associates, a company dedicated to adult basic skills and literacy for out-of-school youth with specialization in integration of education technology. In the new digital divide, there are those who don’t use the Internet, especially to meet personal and work-related learning. With the right approach and resources, libraries and literacy programs can help. Emphasis is on low-income and second-language student populations.
