Abstract

All over the world politicians talk about life long or life wide learning and they make special programs to secure that adults have the possibility to participate in education. Numeracy teaching has all over the Western world been a part of this educational program. The politicians and part of the educational system have a very limited goal of numeracy teaching. In the community of ALM numeracy teaching is not just seen as a mean to reach and keep the welfare society but in fact as a mean to empower adults. I my presentation I will introduce two different models and understandings of numeracy teaching which I have found reading all the proceedings from earlier ALM conferences and I will raise the question: is it possible to empower adults through numeracy teaching
