About the Workshop for Parents
Back to References for Parents || Spanish-speaking Parents || Web Workshop Ideas
As I selected links, I attempted to find sites that would appeal to a variety of tastes. Some people like to read information, others like to see information presented visually, and still others like a combination of the two.
This class lasted an hour and a half, but because of the large number of participants and the limited number of Internet connections, each person had half the time or 45 minutes to explore the Web. The other half of the group worked on a Claris Works assignment; midway through the session people traded places.
I encouraged participants to get right to work. As questions came up, I attempted either to answer them or to suggest ways to find answers. I kept jargon to a minimum throughout the class. When asked, I responded to technical questions, but my primary objective was to make this an enjoyable and non-threatening experience for everyone involved.
