As a new member of this discussion group, I would like to introduce myself. My name is Patricia Celidon, staff member of Centro Latino for Literacy located in Los Angeles, CA. I would like to share with you a great resource that can benefit adults who are non to low literate in their native language.
Our web-based, pre-literacy ESL course teaches non-literate Spanish-speaking adults to read and write, and introduces basic digital literacy skills.
- It adds value to existing adult literacy/education services
- Simple and effective self-paced course, no need to have credentialed staff
- Undergone formative and summative evaluations from UCLA
- Adults overcome fear of technology and gain foundation to learn English
