myPLACE℠ Online Learner, Audrey Adams shares her experience from Mayor’s Commission on Literacy. “I started the myPLACE℠ program, now I know how important computer skills are. I am now able to do an online reading and writing course. Now that I have some computer skills, I want to know more – to improve my typing speed and learn all the functions of the keys. The skills I am acquiring in this class will be of great value to me in the future. My thirst for knowledge is so great now, and I think that is a wonderful thing!” Online Learner, written from her Reading and Writing online class at 4th-5th grade level.
