Experience the change
Adults often have a lot on their minds, but according to a recent Pearson study, the collar-pulling concerns motivating them to go back to school have changed.
The global learning company conducted more than 1,600 online interviews with U.S. adults ages 25 to 64 years old in late July and early August of 2017. The adults polled were either currently enrolled in a degree or certificate program or planning to enroll in one.

Among the poll’s key findings: Adults no longer feel that outsourcing or being replaced by younger workers is the greatest threat to their jobs. But their ability to keep pace with rapid changes in technology is making them especially nervous. Seventy-two percent of respondents said more education was needed to keep up with advances in their field; and 69 percent of respondents said technology would significantly transform their job within the next five years.
More than half of older adults are internet users
In April 2012 the Pew Research Center found for the first time that more than half of older adults (defined as those ages 65 or older) were internet users. Today, 59% of seniors report they go online—a six-percentage point increase in the course of a year—and 47% say they have a high-speed broadband connection at home. In addition, 77% of older adults have a cell phone, up from 69% in April 2012.
