5. Tips and Tools from the Front Line....

Come put the icing on the cake to add to your knowledge about blended learning!  Please join Literacy Link Niagara's Common Front Line Focus Group to learn about their successes using digital tools with their learners.  For the past 16 years, literacy instructors in the Niagara Region have been meeting every two months through a forum called the Common Front Line Focus Group.  This group is comprised of at least one representative from each of the EO -funded LBS Programs in the Niagara Region – Anglophone, Francophone and Native.  The past year the group focused on digital literacy and developed a list of online websites, resources and tools that they commonly use with their learners.  This webinar will highlight these digital resources and share practical strategies the group uses in service delivery.

Presented by Jacky Catterick, Lead Instructor, District School Board of Niagara and Gay Douglas-Broerse, Executive Director of Literacy Link Niagara
