Abstract: Relevance. Due to rapid technological progress and development of information society, a transformation occurs in adult learning that challenges opportunities available through technology that give comprehensive and creative solutions to problems. Since the continuous technological education situation in Lithuania has not been researched extensively, this study seeks to improve and expand current knowledge about the needs of adults with emphasis on what, how and why adults want to learn about technology and what are their reasons and possible obstacles. Study. To determine Vilnius adult population's (25-64 years) technology learning needs in the context of lifelong learning. Objectives: 1) to examine areas of interest for adults in learning technology 2) to establish adult learning techniques and methods 3) to reveal adult approach to learning of technology. The object of the research — the needs of adult Vilnius population (25-64 year old people) for technological learning. Methods: literature and document analysis, empirical research – a survey (N = 384). According to the survey results, following conclusions were formulated: 1. Examination of the areas of interest for the adult population determined a particularly heightened interest in design and supply, and the least popular area was leather processing. Adult learning interests in the field of technology are most commonly associated with the improvement of already available skills, as most women want to study applied arts, knitting and textile technology, and most men opt for mechanical repairs, woodworking, construction and metal processing. The majority of respondents link the learning of technologies to information and communication technology management, and only the minority wishes to develop entrepreneurial skills or to learn about ecological culture
