GED CONNECTION: A DISTANCE EDUCATION CHOICE
Wake Technical Community College has adopted PBS LiteracyLink’s GED Connection (GED-C) multimedia learning system for a distance education option. GED Connections class meets Monday evenings at Athens Drive High School. To enter the program attend a pre-registration session; the schedule appears on this blog’s homepage.
GED-C is a program that helps adult learners advance toward their GED and improve skills needed at the workplace. Combining video programs, print, and online computer technology, GED Connection helps learners develop strategies and practice for success on the GED exam and beyond. The LiteracyLink has Wake Tech teachers available to coach adult learners as they work online lessons, ask how to register when you go to Athens for orientation.
GED Connection combines
- 39 video programs, broadcast by UNC-TV or available streaming at the following sites:
PreGED Connections Videos Site: http://www.fastforwardunctv.org/pre_gedc/
- 3 GED student workbooks covering Reading/Writing, Social Studies/Science, and Math; 5 Pre-GED workbooks, one for each GED subject.
- 5 interactive online learning modules, with practice tests, online activities and quizzes for each GED Connection lesson.
These integrated multimedia components work together to make studying for the GED easy for a busy adult who needs to work at his or her own pace.
Use GED Connection at home, at work, at the library, and meet with your teacher at Athens Drive on Mondays. You can view the lessons on UNC-TV, record these lessons, and use the recordings to study at home. Teachers at Athens Drive have GED Connection DVDs and books available, with volunteers to help you, too. You can order GED Connection workbooks to use at home or pick up one lesson at a time from your teacher at Athens Drive.
