Joint Meeting on Nsukka Blog Spot set for Wednesday, September 18th at 7:30 AM at St. Viator School

Members of the joint education committee subgroup for web presence are meeting on Wednesday, September 18th at 7:30 AM to talk about how students in the Diocese of Nsukka and in the Archdiocese of Chicago can become "pen pals" in this age of "instant" communication. Educational leaders both in Nsukka and Chicago will meet over Skype to talk about how this blogspot might be utilized to allow students the opportunity to more easily (and instantly) connect to each other and enrich their learning.

At this meeting, Educational leaders will learn how to utilize the blogspot and will discuss how to safe guard students in their use of this form of communication.

Prior to the meeting, each member will attempt to post a "blog" entry in order to come to the meeting with a sense of the work that lies ahead and how students will learn new communication skills.

If you are interested in having your school join in this exciting process, please contact Carol at or join us at St. Viator School, 4140 W Addison Street.
