Hi all,



Can anyone share resources/tools related to technology and workforce
development? Norma Rey-Alicea, a consultant with Jobs for the Future
<http://www.jff.org/index.php> is trying to develop a resource list
that targets workforce development professionals and can help answer the
question: how can/do we use technology effectively for workforce
development? This may include such things as software programs or
e-learning for workforce training or tools to measure and analyze
employment-related outcomes. It may include technology that helps to
conduct needs assessments based on economic trends. Norma is also
interested in any articles on why the Workforce Development field needs
to focus more on technology. Perhaps you know of workforce or sector
programs that use technology in effective and innovative ways.

Norma is looking for any good contacts who can help her find this
information. It would also be helpful to get names of people who may be
good speakers on this topic for an upcoming conference.



Best,

Nell
