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.

Turn Off the Lights browser extension
Turn Off the Lights is a free and simple to use browser extension that lets you dim everything on your screen except the video player you are watching. It helps to minimize distractions and bring your videos into focus. It can be a great tool for anyone, but especially for literacy students who might be distracted by all the additional text and images surrounding the video.
