Spanish language teaching material documentation

A colleague and I are putting together a collection of Spanish language teaching material aimed at young people. We are focusing on three programs -- Tuxpaint (grade school), Scratch (junior high and up) and FrontlineSMS (high school). The teaching material is online and you are free to use it to teach kids or to learn on your own. If you use it or have suggestions for additions, improvements or others who would like to use it, let us know.  See More

"Hi Larry No, I'm sorry - could be different drivers or a difference in the way your computer handles them. I would provide your users with the Troubleshooting guide and advise them that trial and error is the key! Best wishes Laura"

"The E173 is able to connect, but often requires a confusing workaround that I cannot explain to my users. I looked at the supported device list and checked the Huawei E1550 at random.  It seems to have way better reports than the E173.…"

Failed to create route on Auto-configured huawei E173 on port COM8": connection.error.serial.portinuseexception.Message 2 might reflect the fact that it seems to be trying COM8 twice at the same time (see attached screen shot).I bought my Huawei E173 modem from Frontline and it connects…See More

I've been studying the global diffusion of the Internet, with an emphasis on policy and technology in developing nations, for over twenty years.
