TALC anyone

Teaching aids at low cost had a fund raising slot on radio 4 this morning . Teaching Aids at Low Cost have been around since 1965 and started of with distributing book transparencies in the health teaching area. They now run e-talc that create e media (cds) as well as sending out a lot paper based texts.

What does an e-TALC CD-ROM include?


from the the website http://www.talcuk.org/e-talc.htm


A variety of electronic resources are included on the e-TALC CD-ROM
including journals, books, newsletters and interactive educational
content. These resources are donated by a variety of NGOs, publishers
and individuals involved in health and development in developing
countries. The resources are sorted and chosen for inclusion on
future issues of e-TALC by our expert editorial board who make their
selection based on the relevance of the resource to health care
workers in resource-poor settings.


Some of the organisations who regularly contribute material to e-TALC include:


  • World Health Organisation
  • The British Medical Journal
  • The Lancet
  • The Wellcome Trust
  • World Anaesthesia
  • International Centre for Child Health
You can don ate to Talc at http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio4/religion/radio4appeal.shtml
Could do with linking up with the  http://www.freedomtoaster.org/
project John Davitt told me of a year ago or so.

Whether you are a dentist or a mom, teaching another person about dental hygiene can be a challenge. Most people who develop poor dental habits do so early in life and are reluctant to change them even with the threat of developing cavities and gum disease. One way to help people understand the importance of proper dental hygiene, as well as learn a few techniques, is to use dental teaching aids.
