Hello Terry,

Many of the discussions and resources which appear on the Technology
list will be found at the Adult Literacy Education Wiki in the
Technology topic are.


If something should be added to the wiki, you can also add it
yourself. That's the beauty of a wiki -- it;s a tool for a community
of practice. Incidentally, the Technology area is one of the topic
area that is still looking for a topic area leader. If someone on
this list is interested, let me know.
