Follow us on Pinterest

Are you a Pinterest user? We recently set up a Pinterest account for AlphaPlus and you can follow us at http://www.pinterest.com/alphapluspins.
Some of you might think that Pinterest is only for pinning images, but we believe that it can be a great repository tool to visually share information and links to interesting websites and resources. Don’t forget that while we do pin images on the boards, these images lead you to the websites they originate from. This process allows you to quickly scan the content of each board, pick the tool or topic you are interested in and follow the website link that comes with the image to learn more.
To start off, we thought we would share with you information about Apps that support specific Ontario Adult Literacy Curriculum Framework (OALCF) competencies. Here is what we have set up so far:
- Adult Literacy Apps Find and Use Information
- Adult Literacy Apps Communicate Ideas and Information
- Adult Literacy Apps Understand and Use Numbers
- Adult Literacy Apps Use Digital Technology
- Adult Literacy Apps Manage Learning
- Adult Literacy Apps Engage with Others
We plan to add other interesting boards for you to explore, and we will continue updating the content.
We invite you to follow our Pinterest account and send us comments and suggestions on what else you would like to see pinned.
