Today in class I'm teaching students how to use contemporary chat systems in social media. Should be fun, and they're a smart group. All going well we will get onto Video chat and Hangout type stuff. This lesson always reminds me how the great majority of people experience isolation as a daily reality, and despite a minority of people using the internet for communications, that for many, learning how to use the internet for whatever reason is a bridge too far. So we will go gently. Happy Days.
