LearnScope / New Practices

Learnscope Participation

I have been participating in the Learnscope project - Working Both Ways - online forum.
The aim of the project is to connect practitioners in Aboriginal Education around the country to share ideas and learn from each other's good practice. Register and have a look at the forum!

New Practices Projects

I met with Grahame Sawyer - New Practices - Overcoming the Digital Divide project.
This project will build a set of flexible delivery techniques suitable for students in a remote indigenous community
with a training centre. This will support the identified community needs for training in relation to real employment outcomes in the community and develop the ability to deliver an appropriate blend of training including face-to-face, online technology and other standalone elements.

A financial management program has been developed for the Titjikala community and is being hailed as a success.

I have a copy of the Community Financial Management System CD ROM which I will look at in the next few weeks to evaluate its pro/cons from my own perspective.

Grahame was interested to share information regarding his current project and CARHDS's 2003 "Online Learning for Health Communities" project.
