Re: Jonathan Schafler wiki-based informal education
- Jonathan, Thank you for your reply! I spoke today with Franz Nahrada of our
Global Villages working group http://groups.yahoo.com/group/globalvillages/
and he saw your Power Point presentation and encourages you to look at
existing structures such as our Minciu Sodas lab. He invites you to join us.
I also invite you to http://groups.yahoo.com/group/learningfromeachother/ led
by Pamela McLean who just returned from Nigeria (any news Pam?) Please join
us at either or both groups and let's discuss further! your work is very
relevant. I also inform our groups the good news that we got EU approval for
a "utopias" project in which we will get co-funding for video bridges
technology in Lithuania, one unit for our Atzalynas center and a mobile unit.
Thank you kindly for your note. Although I have not had a chance to review
websites in great detail, I greatly respect your efforts to create
wiki-based learning projects.
In my view, there is a deep need for a wiki-based website with objective and
subjective information organized in a curriculum format such as one
at a university. Information on the Internet tends to lack in the coherence
and focus of educational courses.
Despite having a full map of how I envision the GiveThought website
aesthetically and functioning, I do not have sufficient programming
at my disposal to make it a reality. Do you know of anyone who would be
willing to discuss involvement in this worthy social entrepreneurial
I look forward to hearing back from you.
