Thursday January 27, 2011 is Family Literacy Day. On this day, families are encouraged to spend at least 15 minutes participating in a learning opportunity as a family. This year’s theme is to PLAY for Literacy. Playing games – board games, card games, trivia games etc… – strengthens our literacy skills all while having FUN at the same time.
At Good Learning Anywhere, we do not have the luxury to host an event at a physical location because we all work remotely across the province of Ontario and so do our learners. However, that will not stop us from participating in an online event to celebrate Family Literacy Day. Good Learning Anywhere will be hosting a LIVE e-Channel session to play the 2011 Family Literacy Day Jeopardy Challenge!
Yes, that’s right, Jeopardy! We have taken the popular game show and created an interactive online version to meet the needs of our learners. And it has some Canadian flavour as the host of Jeopardy, Alex Trebek, is from Canada! The questions will be literacy focussed on health, computer use, numeracy, pop culture and manners. When our learners have completed the game, they will all be given access to the game so they can go home and play it again as a family.

On behalf of Sioux Hudson Literacy Council and Good Learning Anywhere, we would like to wish you and your family a Happy Family Literacy Day!
