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.

Google Chrome – a web browser with apps and extensions
Google Chrome is a free web browser developed by Google with a 45% worldwide usage share of web browsers, indicating that it is the most widely used web browser in the world. Google Chrome aims to be minimalistic, secure, fast and stable. Users can log into the browser using a Google account which in turn allows them to synchronize their bookmarks, history, and settings across all devices they are using. For example, users can set their favourite home page, toolbars, shortcuts, apps and extensions and have them accessible on any device they use as soon as they log in.
