The spread and use of technologies for communication has created new modes for reading and writing. Many adult learners are highly motivated by digital modes or technologies, such as text messaging, email and social networking on the internet.

Some modes, such as hypertext, allow readers to use text in non-linear ways, following links or buttons to read, view, listen and write. These modes, which are changing the ways in which people learn and engage with ideas and information, provide many excellent learning opportunities for adult learners.12
