Learner of the Year – Krystle S.

Being an adult learner is not a simple thing: when you make that decision to upgrade your skills,  life doesn’t stop, and it certainly doesn’t take it easy on you either.  There will always be bills to pay, children to feed, family members to deal with and countless other things that get piled on top…

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…

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? This summer I am trying to accomplish many things – we are thinking about moving, I’d like to take some courses, our fall programs here at Good Learning Anywhere are…
