MaRA’s website: Seminar Presentations, Skopje 2010

Friends, MaRA is very much excited about our new web site: http://literacymk.wordpress.com

Among the other pages there is this one http://literacymk.wordpress.com/1st-national-literacy-conference/ It contains the presentations of almost all of the presenters, in Skopje 2010. I know I don’t have Hennrieta  and Schlomo’s. I would be more than happy to also add these. Is it all right for you to have them  here, on the IDEC web site?

Please let me know.
