NEW! E-Learning on the Goal Paths
Our latest e-bulletin, titled E-Learning on the Goal Paths, is focused on activities that instructors and learners can use to find information about each of the goal paths, and to work on digital skills and building computer self-efficacy. We know, that finding resources from which instructors can build digital learning and practice activities in each of the Ontario Adult Literacy Curriculum Framework (OALCF) goal paths can be very time-consuming. To help you save some time we have used a Live Binder – essentially a “three-ring binder on the web” – that functions as a web-based repository of live links that we have organized by goal path.
