Kids teaching themselves how to use computers

Hi All,
Here is a cool link to an experiment done in India. The experiment was called "Hole in the Wall" and the researcher put a computer literally through a hole in the wall and let kids use it. The kids taught themselves how to use the computer and how to speak English as well. It is very interesting watch the video by clicking on the link below:

GED Online

Have you thought about writing the GED exams to obtain recognition for a course or career path? Do you know someone who is interested in preparing to write GED exams? It is possible to get ready for the GED exams on your own, but highly advisable to connect with real live people for support.
Northlands College will be providing access to live tutorial support and a set of support resources online in the very near future. This service may be accessed through Northlands College at edcentre.ca.
Northern Saskatchewan residents are encouraged to contact the edcentre.ca office 1-888-299-5680 or any of the Northlands College Program Centers for more details.
Stay posted for more developments here.
In the meantime, here is a link to an interesting free support resource for GED preparation: Free-ed.net GED Prep

Time for reflection

Mid-term reporting time is here again. We are busy providing progress reports to schools to include in feedback that is shared with parents. We are also busy at the school with local students accessing tutorial assistance. This is a good time for all of the learners in the online learning envrionment to reflect on their original goals.
