hoped to get more as far as internet skills are concerned.
But writing my own personal story and searching the internet
got me very involved. I am getting things I never thought
I would know.
learnt a lot from R's story. I learnt things I never knew
about Israel's war of Independence. I never knew that
the Kibbutz's children had to be evacuated. Writing together
was most interesting.
M. 6th grade
intellectual abilities aren't as good as they used to
be. I am learning sort of slowly. Because of these meetings
my understanding is getting better my teacher
(5th grade) has much patience. She "opened my head"
(a Hebrew expression, meaning she "got my brains
working")Though I don't own a computer, I know now
how to digest it.
got to know J. better through her personal history and
the story we are writing together. N.5th grade
don't compete with the other learners and I don't compare
myself with their progress. I am working at my own pace.
I have a computer at home but I don't even touch it. I
did expect to be able to type on my own
learnt much more about R. through her story.
N. 5th grade
this stage I am feeling much better. I know how to use
the mouse and feel I gained mastery over it. I have made
much progress but still lack much knowledge M.65+
personal story is most interesting. I have never heard
it before. We are making great progress.
K. granddaughter 5th grade
one meeting to another I am more and more satisfied. I
feel good. I enjoy the work greatly. I still don't know
everything. I would like to know more I would like to
master the Office package better.
know more about the Kibbutz and its history. I am learning
about my family as my tutee is my grandmother's neighbor
P. 8th grade
find it so very interesting learning about how "
my teacher" perceives me. His perception of me is
of a totally different dimension. I would like to get
a written summary of the work we have done in the internet.
Right now I am so absorbed in writing my story that I
can't concentrate on internet skills.
we concentrated on her personal history, we wrote it using
PowerPoint. It's so very interesting as if one was reading
a thriller. I wanted to know more and more. She is using
terms and words I have never heard and when I ask her
what they mean, she says: "wait" (and thus suspension
is built) I am right handed and she is left-handed. She
keeps moving everything to the left side and I keep moving
things to the right side. In short we are having a great
Y. 6th grade
enjoy so much the story I am typing. The very fact that
I discovered that I can type
what a discovery! However,
apart from typing nothing really attracts me. I am not
interested in anything else, including the internet. I
enjoy so much writing my story, the "then" story.
I find it so exciting. I felt time was flying by..I wanted
to print the pictures, but had to stop..
was so busy writing her story all the time, that I felt
useless. I hardly had a chance to help. Because of her
I learnt how to use a scanner and download pictures.
D. 5th grade
we started planning the e book, " my teacher"
and I, we decided to write the story of a real group of
youngsters in my time, when I was at these youngsters
age. The problem is that we are nearing the end of the
course and there is still so much to be done, we mustn't
meetings, two hours each are too short!
A. 6th grade
my tutee didn't come but even though he couldn't come
I decided to show up and help the others. I helped today
in scanning pictures.
B. 6th grade
amongst us, who underwent the very difficult times prior
to the establishment of the State of Israel, find it very
difficult to pass on this chapter in our history to the
young ones. I find coming here and learning fantastic.
But remembering those days I find most difficult. Teachers
like those who are tutoring us are hard to find. These
youngsters are so patient and teach us as if they were
qualified and experienced teachers.
Didn't bring her work on the story as requested, but we
discussed the situation today and from that point we went
to discuss the situation in those days
S. 6th grade
I agree with most of the comments made so far. I wrote,
by hand, my life story at home and my wife typed it for
me. When I came here my teacher asked me to continue typing
it. Part of it, he, the young one typed and then prompted
me to continue and each time I touched the keyboard I
felt I was typing faster. Today I finished typing the
story. It's a great feeling.

feel I have joined the Global Village, this is a great
feeling. Now its all up to me, no more excuses. When I
watch the TV and see WWW written I don't fret. Now I have
to teach my wife.
