Summer Literacy Training Institutes
Literacy and Technology:
June 2730, 1999, Montreal, Quebec.
Over three and a half days, participants will listen and respond to Canadian, American and British example of technology use in ABE and literacy. We will look at state-of-the-art systems and locally-cobbled models of technology use, and reflect on the possibilities or problems associated with them. The Institute is highly collaborative. Those who register become presenters if they wish. The Institutes program is built around participants interests / problems. Part of each day is set aside to discuss and reflect on these interests or problems and to receive feedback from colleagues. Research can be done after 3 pm in the resource centre which houses one of the most extensive collections of documents and materials in the country (including) a preview service for software. A participants listserv is being set up to identify issues and initiate discussions that can continue face-to-face at the institute.
Fees: $350.00 includes materials, continental breakfast, refreshments, lunches. For more information, contact The Centre for Literacy, Tel: 514-931-8731 X1415, Fax: 514-931-5181, E-mail: email@example.com, website: www.nald.ca/litcent.htm
