The author of this blog, wants to provide a space for and by adult literacy practitioners to provide help in:
* Increasing student motivation, retention, and persistence
* Identifying and meeting student goals
* Guiding students to the appropriate programs, courses, and information
* Sharing best practices
* Collaborating to increase student achievement
* Providing literacy and Worksheets Links
The website is tailored to the needs of the Kerry Volunteer Tutor, but many of the blog's articles will be of interest to a broader audience. These include: integrating technology in the classroom and home; how to create your own (free) blog; and other tips can be found at Loreto's Blog.
Literacy in Ireland
In the past literacy was considered to be the ability to read and write. Today the meaning of literacy has changed to reflect changes in society and the skills needed by individuals to participate fully in society. It involves listening, speaking, reading, writing, numeracy and using everyday technology to communicate and handle information.
Hi, my name is Loreto and I'm an adult literacy tutor. I created this website to keep track of all things useful I have come across. Sometimes I am given a link by someone and if its not put on here it can be forgotten about. If you come across something you think is useful or even just fun, drop me a note to let me know and I will put it on here. Thank you for your time and I hope you find this website useful.
