* a blog with a specific focus on Adult Education and Technology 

* Marion Thatcher is “Keeping an eye on technology for the adult education classroom and beyond”.

* contains links to many useful educational tools to use in a classroom.

      – such as Storybird, asite that uses donated art to for students to use to tell a visual/media story

      – could be used to help students gain deeper knowledge of a concept taught in class if they have an assignment that has them regurgitate the info from class into a visual format to share with other students.

* This blog site will help any teacher looking for tech ideas for teaching tools to help engage the techno savy students these days.

i-tec: Indigenous people’s technology and education center

The website for i-tec is an infomation site that explains how they help indigenous churches. Their focus is on enabling indigenous churches to overcome the technological and educational hurdles that stand in the way of their independence. “Technology” used by i-tec are not necessarily computers or distance learning but actually equipment and training to help remote indigenous groups with little or no access to transportation, dentistry, medical care or even the know-how to maintain equipment on their own. The links involved are internal and only go to other information pages, a contact list, a store and a donation page. This site would be of use to anyone researching the types of technology being used in remote indigenous locations.
