Description

Many believe that the Internet can play an important role in promoting literacy and education efforts worldwide. It was with that aim that Google, LitCam, and UNESCO's Institute for Lifelong Learning launched The Literacy Project, which provides a platform through which literacy organisations and teachers can connect and share best practices, tools, and information. This talk will look at the promotion of best practice sharing through the site, as well as address some of the challenges faced across this field, including Internet connectivity, new media literacy, and cultural and language differences.
