News Letter

As my family surfaces from chopping wood to keep the house warm from Hurricane Sandy I am remind at how dealing with electricity and Internet access is a daily experience in  places like Africa. After two days without power I am drowning with hundreds of requests for information. In that we are very small, we are placing all our project information and resources within the links of this email. As many of you know these programs empower NGOs, associations and schools with a wide range of free educational materials on digital literacy, digital storytelling and methods on how we learning via the Internet.

We encourage you to join our educational communities http://globallearningframework.ning.com and our UNESCO PPN seeded digital storytelling site http://i-am-the-story.ning.com.

Next Steps.

We are currently seeking of ways to move to Africa in order to accelerate to the expansion of our “Community Development through Digital Literacy” programs, presentation below. We are also continuing in our exploration to build Community Learning Centers to Africa. If you are interested in joining us in these efforts, feel free to email me directly at rclose@richardclose.info
