For those who may be confused by these June blogs, we are home. Our mission finished on May 05. Things have been hectic and busy so I am taking the time now to catch up on past blogs. I hope to post one or more a day until I bring the blogs up to date.
We have finished the alphabet, phonics, and English lessons for the Aboriginal people. They were created from Power Points with animation and voice. There are many schools and agencies interested in using the DVDs when they become available. Sister Lovegrove and Sister Wood were transferred back to Alice Springs to finish up the project. It was quite a job, but they did it. After Sister Lovegrove finished the final voicing and Sister Wood finished the final checking, they rendered the Power Points to video, and then to DVD. The purpose of this format is to allow teachers and community members, to teach in a simple interesting manner, and then allow the students to learn and and practice at home.Thanks to the Sisters and many volunteers who aided in this process.
Here we are at dinner with Ann Roberts, a wonderful educator and volunteer. She piloted the project for us in Alcoota and provided valuable feedback and help.
