From Strength to Strength ACAL1-3 October, Freemantle WA
I would like to acknowledge all of the First Nation’s Learners and Practioners who have opened their hearts and minds to the idea of online Literacy Learning. I would like to acknowledge Aboriginal community members, the traditional custodians and owners of the land on which we meet here today. I would also like to acknowledge the elders both past and present of this and other nations represented here.

Traditionally, focus groups, regardless of purpose, have been conducted in a face to face situation. But today, electronic communication technologies have enabled researchers to utilize new approaches to this form of research.
