Movember – Week 1 is Over

Week 1 is over for Movember and Good Mo’s Anywhere. It’s been an interesting week trying to grow the Mo. The first few days seemed to go well. Those days were easy. The last 3 or 4 days have been more challenging as the Mo becomes a little more itchy and it’s starting to require…

Good “Mo’s” Anywhere

The month of October is quickly coming to an end. We have had a wonderful month at Good Learning Anywhere…lots of new learners, attendance rates are up, new friendships have been made and learners are having fun. And after October comes November…better known as Movember! It’s that time of year where we are asking all…

Thanks and Giving

It’s that time of year again and the Canadian Thanksgiving weekend is fast approaching.  This is a wonderful holiday as friends and family typically take the time to re-connect and engage in some quality time.  The Thanksgiving holiday is also very non-commercialized unlike many other holidays we celebrate.  I think that is something that makes…

September is Life Literacy Month

During the summer of 2010, I began to try and understand social media and its relevance to online and distance learning.  More specifically, I wanted to learn more about Twitter and what it can do for me.  That sounds selfish but I think we need to be selfish when it comes to literacy.  That’s where…

“Just do it”

Some of us have grown up with the Nike slogan in our head and often use it in conversations…but have you ever really thought about the saying?

Most Improved Learners of 2009-10

Being an adult learner has its share of challenges, and this is something we recognize at Good Learning Anywhere. By providing a supportive, flexible learning environment, we try to make the transition between working adult to student as seamless as possible.  Yet, the success of our learners isn’t all because of what we do.  It’s…

My Unexpected

Instructing for a year.  I put the headset on and press record.  I think “been there/done that”, nothing can surprise me anymore. heh There is no sitting back and going through the motions at Good Learning Anywhere. When you least expect it, a hand will go up, a question will be asked, and the flood…

Spring is in the Air!

Spring has arrived!…or at least it felt like that last week…and now I am watching snow flurries! But that’s what happens in Spring in Canada. You never know what kind of weather you’re going to get. Well I can tell you what you’re going to get from Sioux Hudson Literacy Council and Good Learning Anywhere…
