Voices from the Field

Learn more about how this is used in practice.

The Transition Integration Framework (TIF) was a great jumping off point for seeing how to integrate technology, employability and writing skills simultaneously.

Building Integrated Employability and Digital Skills

Polytech Adult Education used the Transition Integration Framework (TIF) in an ESOL and Pre-GED class, integrating the leveled skills into their existing curriculum in combination with Northstar Digital Literacy, Skills to Pay the Bills, and My MN Careers.

MyMnCareers was developed by the Southwest Minnesota Adult Basic Education Program and the former iSeek Solutions organization, with funding from the Otto Bremer Foundation. MyMnCareers is housed within the site of its sponsor, Minnesota State Colleges and Universities. Staff from Ronald M. Hubbs Center for Lifelong Learning helped write and produce this website.
