Yesterday I made a presentation of my ESL Distance Learning program via Smart Phone to 25 volunteer tutors of the libraries in Santa Barbara and surrounding counties
My program consists of the websites Pumarosa.com, inglesconprofepablo.com, plus my Facebook, YouTube videos and WhatsApp study groups.
Most of the tutors at the libraries, of course, provide one-on-one classes in many subjects to a wide variety of students, in addition to ESL. So I think that what is needed is a list of websites that can provide courses or programs in all subjects to volunteer tutors.
For example, one tutor asked me for information concerning helping a stroke victim to regain his English skills. I told her that I would ask my contacts, so please let me know any information you might have.
I have also found out that apparently there is still a reluctance to use technology not only on the part of tutors but also across the board in adult education, so it would be very worthwhile to have a discussion on the practical benefits of all the gadgets, gizmos and devices! Believe me, they work and work well!!
