Educate Me!
« on: November 17, 2009, 02:14:58 am »
As President Obama makes his way through his Asian tour, education is a high-priority Hot Topic item for him.  Now is the obvious time to ride the wave as the Chinese and Indians are eclipsing US students in several areas of study.  I thought it prudent to start a thread where we might post resources for educational opportunities and share in the wealth of knowledge existing here at HEF.

First up is 4BlackYouth
This site goes live officially in February, however now is your opportunity to contribute where you'd like.

Secondly, Hanban has all sorts of initiatives (and money) to introduce Americans to Chinese language and culture.

Thirdly, CybernetKids is a program to get your little people tech savvy.

Thank You Thank You! Ms Tink I could not have read this at a better time, the little one (only one) is taking mandarian and tones seem to be a bit of a downful. Mandarian is not one of the languages I speak, so shi shi! again

you have taken a very wise step ahead. i admire your thinking and wishing you a best of luck

This is like a Turing test right?

One day, they'll get that A.I. able to mimic a human being.

I see they're not quite there yet.
